The Binding of Isaac Free Halloween Update Hits Today

Edmund McMillen has announced his excellent roguelike The Binding of Isaac will receive a large update later today on Steam. (Expect it no later than Noon Pacific he says.)

The patch will be free to all owners of the title, and brings a significant amount of new content to the title including a brand new chapter–unlocked after killing mom 10 times–an additional “FINAL” ending, and an unlockable character.

New enemies, bosses, items, achievements, music, and more on top of everything else. I think you’ll find it all summed up nicely in the accompanying release trailer below. Full patch notes too:

BIG HALLOWEEN UPDATE (with no actual lame halloween themes)

  • Added chapter 5 (unlocked after 10 mom kills)
  • Added 3+ new bosses
  • Added 4 new enemies
  • Added 20+ new items
  • Added one new unlockable character (Eve)
  • Added one new “FINAL” ending.
  • Added 6+ new achievements
  • Added 2 new music tracks
  • Added updated collection viewer
  • Added 4 new tarot cards (finishig the major arcana)

Fixes:

  • lots of small bugs were fixed
  • load time fixed
  • a few minor item balances
