[Update: The update still hasn't gone live due to server issues, it will launch when they are back up. No word on when that might be, however.]

Halloween is upon us, guys and ghouls. For many of us it's an excuse to dress up and wake up in a puddle of vomit next to a slutty nurse or some dude dressed up as Edward from Twilight. But for Edmund McMillen it's an excuse to add some more evil to the world. Specifically, he's added 20 percent more evil to The Binding of Isaac. I think that's a fairly reasonable figure, I mean we don't want the game to spring to life and murder us all.

This evil comes in the form of a variety of additions, including new bosses and enemies, new music and lots of lovely, and likely gruesome, items. The biggest additions are a new playable character, Eve, and a new chapter which is unlocked once you kill Mom ten times. I'm rubbish, so killing her ten times seems like a tall order. But one I'm happy to attempt.

Here's the full list of additions:

  • Chapter 5 (unlocked after 10 mom kills)
  • 3+ new bosses
  • 4 new enemies
  • 20+ new items
  • One new unlockable character (Eve)
  • One new "Final" ending
  • 6+ new achievements
  • 2 new music tracks
  • Updated collection viewer
  • 4 new tarot cards

There's also been some bug fixes and improvements to load times. The update went live at 12pm PST Unfortunately the update has been delayed, so go immerse yourselves in evil somewhere else.
