Official FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q: Do I need all previous DLCs to play Repentance?

A: Yes, you need Rebirth, Afterbirth AND Afterbirth+ in order to purchase and play Repentance!

Q: Is Repentance just the Antibirth mod?

A: NO, Repentance features an updated version of Antibirth with tons of new content that basically double the content that the mod featured, not to mention 100s of updates to gameplay, items music and art!

Q: Is Repentance coming to console?

A: Yes! Repentance will be coming to Switch, PS4, PS5 and Xbox! the game is actively being ported now and should have a staggered release started later this year. (Special edition retail version of the full collection are also in the works!)

Q: Are mods supported in Repentance?

A: Not at launch, mod support will be disabled for a bit, but will be supported again in an update coming soon.

Q: I see Repentance has co-op, is this online co-op or local?

A: Technically its local (meaning 2-4 players using the same PC) but you can make it online via Steams Remote Play Function .

Q: Should I continue off an existing save or start a new save when playing Repentance?

A: If you want to see new mid/late game content, continue off an old save, a lot of the more beefy aspects of the DLC appear more mid-late game, a lot of stuff will appear early as well but if you are looking to experience more new content I recommend playing off of an existing save.

Q: Is this the final DLC for Isaac!? IS ISAAC REALLY FINISHED!

A: Yes, this will be the last DLC we release for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. the game will continue to be supported obviously, but its time to close the book on this 10 year project.

Q: How much of the old game has been changed? Will I like the changes?

A: A LOT has been changed, there are literally 100s of updates to nearly all aspects of the game, you’ll love some, hate others but in the end youll have a much better experience over all.

Q: How do you play local co-op? Is it on the same keyboard.

Q: No, you need to buy a gamepad or 3 🙂

Q: How do I start a co-op game? And are the old floating babies gone?

A: Hit start on a gamepad in the start room to add a 2nd player for true co-op. Hit start on a gamepad outside of the start room to spawn a baby and play classic co-op.

Q: is Repentance The Binding of Isaac 2?

A: No, bit its close… its like Isaac 1.9.

Q: Will we get booster packs like we did before?

A: No.

Q: Will the game be updated more post release?

A: The game will obviously feature bug fixes and balance updates, we may also do a few random updates with some rework for things like items/thevoid/delerium eventually but nothing is set in stone yet.
