The Binding Of Isaac: Afterbirth † Will Add A Bestiary And Proper Mod Support



The updates to The Binding of Isaac will never ends, it seems. Revealed over on the game’s official blog, Tyrone Rodriguez of publisher Nicalis has revealed some of the plans that his team and creator Edmund McMillen have for The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth †.


Due next year, it’s been deemed a “mini DLC” but that doesn’t mean it won’t have some major additions. First off, there will be a “couple of new bosses, a few transformations and new items/trinkets.”


There will also be a Bestiary that gives you stats and info on the monsters you’ve already encountered. But the biggest news is that this DLC will add proper mod support. “Afterbirth † will include a player/user-friendlier Room Editor, Animation Editor and Lua support. You’ll also be able to edit the item pools,” Rodriguez writes.


In other words, you’ll be able to create your own rooms, add entirely new art to the game, and also completely modify how enemies, items, and effects work so that you can, essentially, create a new game that’s almost nothing like Isaac.
