The Binding Of Isaac: Afterbirth, the massive add-on expansion for The Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth, will finally be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 next month, developer Nicalis has announced.
The DLC released on PC back in October of last year, and while the console version was set to appear by the end of 2015, it has been hit by several delays, presumably to standardize a release date across all platforms.
While the game will also release on Nintendo’s Wii U, Nicalis is still unsure on whether Afterbirth will meet the same release date as Microsoft and Sony’s consoles. Rebirth itself is already a huge game, but Nicalis says that Afterbirth adds over 100 hours of additional gameplay, as well as hundreds of new items, bosses and the addition of daily runs that give the player a specific set of items.
See below for all the new features:
