The Binding of Isaac: Repentance, a ‘sequel-sized final expansion,’ is over 90% done

Expect an overhaul of ‘almost everything’

The Binding of Isaac: Repentance will give fans a ton more to chew on later this year. We still don’t have a final date, but there’s a Steam page and a blog post from Edmund McMillen with reassurances.

The DLC is “basically a sequel at this point” and it’s “over 90% done,” according to McMillen. For a more tangible frame of reference, Repentance is “bigger than Rebirth was to the OG Flash game.”

“I’ve been working closely with the team [behind Antibirth] to ensure that this is the ‘Sequel DLC’ you’ve always wanted. The team has gone above and beyond and we’re really proud of how the game is coming together and I have a feeling you’re gunna shit your asses when you get your hands on it.”

The Binding of Isaac is one of those everlasting games that will live on for many years even if – and I feel like it’s still an “if” at this point – the official support comes to a close. It’s such a passionate community.

500 hours of new gameplay” almost sounds like a threat (I love it!), and big-picture, there’s going to be “a full alternate path with brand new chapters and a new final boss and ending” to discover. Goddang!

We’ll learn more about Repentance‘s chaotic new content with “quite a few” blogs in October.
