The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth will release on PS4 and Xbox One on May 10th according to a press release from the developer. This DLC adds a ton of new content to the game, reshaping it entirely in some ways. The end result is hours of extra playtime in The Binding of Isaac.
“Isaac returns to the basement for more delicious brown stains with more than 100 hours of additional gameplay, 1000-plus new clench-inducing rooms, a whole stinkload of new items and more! Cry your way past droves upon droves of new mysterious creatures, many of which are made from raw errant feces and help Isaac fight his way to safety!”
The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth will retail for $10.99 on both systems. That might seem high for a piece of DLC, but the developer promises that it contains a ton of new mechanics and game elements for players to really dive into.
This includes: “Over 100 hours of MORE gameplay. Greed Mode – a whole new way to play, focused on risk/reward. Expanded main game – a new final area with a new final boss. Daily Runs – play a new official run, everyday! Online Leaderboards – compete for highscore/best time. 10 totally new and awesome challenges! 1000+ new room designs. MONSTROUSLY UPDATED WEAPON COMBO SYSTEM! 120 new items–not counting tons of new pickups, chests, pills, bombs and cards–taking the item count up beyond 500! And an Alternate soundtrack!”
On top of all of this are a bunch of hidden features, like a new playable character, new bosses, and much more. The current May 10th release date for The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth is just for PS4 and Xbox One, with a Wii U update coming in the next few months. Keep an eye out for that if you’re a The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth Wii U player.
