The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth out early 2014 on PS4, Vita and Steam [Update: trailer]


The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth – a complete remake of Edmund McMillen's tragic, captivating roguelike, The Binding of Isaac – is due out early next year for PS4, Vita and Steam. For Rebirth, McMillen tore down The Binding of Isaac and re-built it from scratch, complete with local co-op, competitive loadouts and more than two playable characters.

Rebirth isn't a Flash game – it's made in an engine created by the game's console publisher, Nicalis, with brand new SNES-style, semi-16-bit graphics. The new game has more than 110 new items, extra gameplay, enemies and bosses, plus an expanded storyline. Players who own The Binding of Isaac already will get a "loyalty discount" on Steam for Rebirth.

The Binding of Isaac has sold 2 million copies since launching in September 2011. That's certainly nothing to cry over.
