The Binding of Isaac: Repentance comes crawlin' n' cryin' onto PC today


Console ports to follow later in 2021

It's a very important day for those who worship at the altar of Isaac. Today sees the long-awaited release of The Binding of Isaac: Repentance, the "final" chapter in the grim, gross, and skin-crawling twin-stick series that has been entertaining freaks 'n' geeks since the franchise' inception back in 2011.

Described by creator Ed McMillen as "the best version" of the unholy roguelike, The Binding of Isaac: Repentance sees the title fine-tuned to as close to perfection as the series can get. Repentance is jam-packed with content, adding new playable characters, paths, and chapters alongside, over 100 new enemies, a new final boss, seven extra challenges, four-player co-op support, and "an impossible number" of gameplay tweaks, mechanic adjustments, and visual improvements.

Filled with secrets and surprises, as well as over 5,000 new room layouts, publisher Nicalis Games suggests that Repentance contains "thousands of hours" of exciting gameplay, emphasizing that while this may prove to be the final release in The Binding of Isaac saga, there is more than enough content and engagement provided to keep you playing for the rest of your life... and possibly beyond...

The Binding of Isaac: Repentance launches on PC today via Steam and Epic Games Store. PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch ports are expected in the third quarter of 2021.
