Through his social networks, Edmund McMillen, creator of the roguelike series The Binding of Isaac, confirmed that the third expansion of the game, repentance, is 90% ready and should come out in 2020 for players. With lots of additional content and new features that promise to increase the challenges even more, the DLC will be a narrative extension of the original game.
According to McMillen, The Binding of Isaac: Repentance will be the last update for The Binding of Isaac and it won’t just be a DLC, but a “mega expansion” with lots of content for gamers. Considerably larger than Afterbirth and Rebirth, Repentance should add 25 new bosses, 100 new enemies and more than 130 items scattered randomly across the maps.
repentance it will also not be treated as a simple DLC as it had with previous expansions, and “it’s basically a sequel” of The Binding of Isaac. Thus, to end support in the title, players can expect hours of exploration and complicated battles, as well as occasional news.
Under development since 2018, The Binding of Isaac: Repentance should finally be available in digital stores soon and, according to the official Steam page, will be released later this year, on December 31st. Edmund McMillen also confirmed that the expansion will reach consoles, but didn’t give any further details.
