  2. The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth +
  3. Is Repentance an add-on for this game?

I've been interested in Binding of Isaac for a while, but I see Repentance is coming out in a few months. For PC it's indicated as an add-on, but apparently this Afterbirth is also an add-on? There are so many versions of this game that I'm just confused and I'm finding a lot of conflicting information.

Is Repentance this game, plus more stuff, or do you have to have this game and it's just DLC sold on a physical cartridge for some reason

Yes, it's dlc, but the switch version will not be available until summer.

The switch version is currently only Afterbirth +. The pc version is Rebirth, with the DLC being Afterbirth, Afterbirth +, and Repentance. I'm pretty sure each dlc requires all the previous ones.

$60 DLC? For real? That's outrageous.

The base game is currently $14.99 on steam.
AB is $10.99
AB+ is $9.99
Repentance is $14.99
Even if you add that all together, it's a little over 60 and it's well worth it.

Switch version contains all of that except Repentance, and it's currently 40 dollars digitally (I don't remember what I paid at launch)

The physical version of Repentance, which I just learned about now, is 60, yes, but it's standalone, which means it includes ALL the dlc at once. It's not like Ballad of the Champions or a Smash Bros Fighters Pass you enter a code for, it's literally the entire game.

Edmund has confirmed you will also be able to purchase the DLC separately if you already have AB+ on switch.

I hope this clears things up.

The game is worth 60 bucks, it has hours and hours of gameplay if you want to unlock and see everything. On PC I have over 400 hours spread across 3 years.

I have 675 hours over 6 years, and I should really have more :( Even if you add the 250 hours on the switch version. I really thought I'd have at least 1000 by now.

Thanks for clearing things up. I thought it was 60 just for Repentance, but if it contains everything that's a good deal. Amazon's product page didn't have this information at the time I posted this, either, but it now states that the physical release does in fact have the base game plus everything else together, too. It seems when I posted this was kind of a new announcement, I guess, and info wasn't clear yet.

I would love to buy the all-in-one repentance game card, but even if I sell AB+ it would still cost way more, and I'm not sure if the save files are interchangeable.

I have every intention of purchasing a physical Repentance.
I'm guessing Repentance as dlc, the save files will be compatible. But I'm guessing as a complete game... they wont be.

But I know almost nothing: ) The only thing I do know is that I will be happy to start the game from scratch again.

Well obviously. They're not going to nuke your saves just because you bought dlc.
