The Binding of Isaac Repentance: blood and tears in the DLC launch trailer

The Binding of Isaac Repentance

To celebrate the debut of The Binding of Isaac Repentance on PC, Nicalis has released the launch trailer for the latest expansion of the famous title on its official YouTube channel.

Running just under a minute and a half, the movie introduces all the news of the additional content, which is not limited to adding a series of new environments but also allows players to face a hundred new opponents and as many as 25 additional bosses. It is therefore another full-bodied expansion that makes the title born from the mind of Edmund McMillen even greater. For the uninitiated, this DLC is currently only for sale on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store at a price of around 12 euros. However, it should be noted that Repentance cannot be played by those who only own the standard version of the game and can only be purchased by those who also have Rebirth, Afterbirth and Afterbirth + in their library. In this regard, the definitive version of the Nicalis title is on sale on the Epic Games Store at a price of 39.99 euros and containing any content, including Repentance.

Before leaving you at the launch trailer, we remind you that the expansion will also arrive soon on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and Nintendo Switch. Did you know that The Binding of Isaac 2 is going to happen, but won't be coming soon?

Steam gamers have been told when exactly they can expect to start playing The Binding of Isaac: Repentance this week.

The development team behind the hugely popular roguelike title have confirmed that Repentance will be the last DLC for the original title launched back in 2011.

The good news is that while today’s launch is limited to PC, The Binding of Isaac: Repentance will be coming to other platforms.

According to the Binding team, Repentance will also be coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5 and Xbox platforms.

The game is actively being ported this year and should have a staggered release starting later in 2021.

It has also been confirmed that a special edition retail version of the full collection also in the work but does not have a firm release date yet.


Developer Edmund McMillen has confirmed that The Binding of Isaac: Repentance release time has been set for 8am GMT on Wednesday, March 31.

For gamers in the United States, this means the new Binding DLC will be available to download and play at midnight PST on the same day.

As mentioned above, this will be the final piece of DLC being released for the original Binding of Isaac project, but that doesn’t mean more isn’t being planned.

A message posted on Steam from the Binding team covering post-launch plans reveals: “The game will obviously feature bug fixes and balance updates, we may also do a few random updates with some rework for things like items/the void/Delerium eventually, but nothing is set in stone yet.

“There will be a mega Kickstarter in June that will feature TONS of Isaac swag as well as a mega expansion to the binding of Isaac card game Four Souls... sign up here for the mailing list to get bonus extras and be notified.”

And for anyone looking for more news on the new Binding of Isaac Repentance launch, the latest FAQ covering the game’s launch can be found below:

Do I need all previous DLCs to play Repentance?

A: YES, you need Rebirth, Afterbirth AND Afterbirth+ in order to purchase and play Repentance.

Is Repentance just the Antibirth mod?

A: NO, Repentance features an updated version of Antibirth with tons of new content that basically double the content that the mod featured, not to mention 100s of updates to gameplay, items, music and art.

Should I continue off an existing save or start a new save when playing Repentance?

A: if you want to see new mid/late game content, continue off an old save, a lot of the more beefy aspects of the DLC appear more mid-late game, a lot of stuff will appear early as well, but if you are looking to experience more new content I recommend playing off of an existing save.

How much of the old game has been changed? Will I like the changes?

A: A LOT has been changed; there are literally 100s of updates to nearly all aspects of the game; you'll love some, hate others, but in the end, you'll have a much better experience overall.
