  • A handful of new enemies, features and new champion forms!
  • ZNew cut scenes and music tracks!

But there’s a catch:

While this is a “slightly smaller Afterbirth expansion,” but it since it comes with mod tools, these can “potentially make it 20 times larger.” While no information about Linux support for the mod tools has been made available. We will update this post accordingly when information is available.

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ will be released on Steam January 3rd. Which looks like the game will be available on Linux, Mac and Windows PC.

The Binding of Isaac Rebirth is getting a big Afterbirth expansion

the_binding_of_isaac_rebirth_huge_afterbirth_expansion_coming_this_year

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth now getting even more add-on content sometime around the middle of this year, according to Edmund McMillen (developer). The titles first expansion, called Afterbirth, will “easily extend the gameplay time by another 100-200 hours,” he outlines, given the long list of new additions.

Here’s almost everything McMillen says in his post about the Afterbirth DLC.

  • 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

That’s quite a lot, if you consider how big and replayable The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is already.

McMillen goes on to list fan-suggested challenges for the Afterbirth DLC, including a boss rush battle, one called “Sonic,” where the player starts with 99 coins and dies at zero. Along with “High Rule,” where a player is outfitted with Mom’s Knife, a shield, and a boomerang. They might not all make it into the actual DLC, but they are still some seriously good ideas.

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth was released by McMillen and Nicalis last year for Linux, Mac and Windows PC, as well as PlayStation 4 and Vita.
