Mario’s Doomsday Gets a Slight Redemption
The revamped and expanded version of Edmund McMillen’s hit flash game, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth originally released over 6 years ago in late 2014. Since then, the game has been heavily supported with the release of the Afterbirth and Afterbirth+ DLCs, as well as a magnitude of free updates and booster packs. Well, now a year after its initial announcement, the final DLC expansion for the game, The Binding of Isaac: Repentance finally gets a release date of March 31, 2021.
The highly anticipated expansion received a release date in a new 3D cinematic trailer released by the game’s publisher, Nicalis on Friday, January 1st.
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is a randomly generated action RPG shooter with heavy Rogue-like elements. Following Isaac on his journey players will find bizarre treasures that change Isaac’s form giving him super human abilities and enabling him to fight off droves of mysterious creatures, discover secrets and fight his way to safety.
The Binding of Isaac: Repentance is the final DLC package for the game and will include a magnitude of original content by the game’s creator, Edmund McMillen, as well as content from the popular mod pack, The Binding of Isaac: Antibirth. The expansion is being worked on by the mod pack’s developers, under the leadership of McMillen himself. McMillen has said himself in several of his Twitter Q&As that the expansion will add around the same amount of content as the base game.
