The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth wonderful #roguelike from Edmund McMillen and Florian Himsl’s now has a release date of Novomber 4th for Linux, Mac, and Windows via #Steam. Along the PS4, Vita, on the same date. Just make sure you do not confuse Rebirth with The Binding of Isaac (sans “Rebirth”), which was released in 2011 for Linux, Mac, and Windows.
A sequel of sorts to 2011’s dungeon-crawler RPG The Binding of Isaac, the game will be more crazy and strange than ever before.
“It’ll be awesome to finally give console players a chance to experience the weirdest thing I’ve ever made,” said the game’s designer, Edmund McMillen, whose portfolio includes 2010’s Super Meat Boy.
The game will feature over 500 hours of gameplay, ten playable characters, over a hundred different enemies, two-player coop, and will run at 60fps. More enemies, more playable characters, more gear, more upgrade possibilities, cooperative play, and — according to the press announcement — “rooms FULL OF POOP!” That’s why it’s being treated as a brand new game on the Linux, Mac and Windows PC side. You can find all sorts of info about what sets Rebirth apart from its predecessor in a FAQ on the game’s official website.
