Binding of Issac to receive massive ‘AfterBirth’ update


The Binding of Issac: Rebirth, the game about a baby blob thing killing other blob things via Smash TV controls and style, is set to receive a massive update expansion titled “AfterBirth.”

“You could almost get lost in all that new content! It should easily extend the gameplay time by another 100-200 hours,” developer Edmund Micmillin states.

So how much exactly is going to be added to the new expansion? Details on the site are listed on the developer’s page, and it’s not even the complete list yet:

  • 100+ new items
  • a full new game mode that will totally change how you play
  • 10 new challenges
  • a new playable character
  • a new alternate final chapter
  • new alt floors
  • new game endings
  • new final bosses
  • tons of new bosses and enemies
  • new item pickups, cards, pills, etc.
  • tons of new achievements and rewards for beating the game on hard
  • new co-op babies
  • new transformations

Micmillin also states that there may be fan-suggested DLC/achievements/challenges to be included as well:

“Last update I asked for you guys to give me some awesome challenges for the DLC via reddit, here are the top 9 challenge suggestions you all posted.

Keep in mind that not all of these challenges will make it into the DLC, and if they do they might not be designed as described.

  • An XXXL room challenge: all floors are XL but have the max amount of rooms per XL floor.
  • High Speed!: The game plays at x2 speed.
  • Sonic: All doors are arcade doors, start with 99 coins all enemies have greed shot effect (cause you to drop/lose coins). You die at 0 coins.
  • Max Hearts: A challenge where you start with max heart containers but hearts no longer drop.
  • High Rule: Start with mom’s knife + trinity shield + boomerang
  • Rollers: Each time you complete a room all of your items and stats are re-rolled (item pools aren’t depleted).
  • BRAINS!: Start with 3-4 bobs brains, blindfolded (no tears).
  • Blue Bomber: Blue baby run with kamikaze + flying + new DLCitem + pyromaniac, Blindfolded (no tears).
  • All Start Boss Rush: A challenge where you fight all the game’s bosses

So if you’re a fan of this insanely addictive classic arcade style game, keep an eye out for the update coming in the middle of this year!
