The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Update v4.0.3 Live, Patch Notes Here

The Binding Of Isaac Repentance
The Binding Of Isaac Repentance DualShockers

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth received a small update a few days ago. It is the third update to release after the launch of the Repentance expansion pack. Update v4.0.3 made several balancing changes to the game along with a few dozen bug fixes. The Blank Card now requires two extra seconds to cool down when used with Holy Card. The total cooldown period is now four seconds.

Players can’t find Best Bud and Hallowed Ground via “The Lost” anymore. You can’t obtain Red Keys in Greed Mode anymore, and five new items will now count for Planetarium unlock. These are Deck of Cards, Tarot Cloth, Zodiac, Card Reading, and Echo Chamber. The rest of the changes and bug fixes as mentioned below.


  • Souls dropped by enemies with the Urn of Souls are now automatically collected when exiting the room
  • Added a few more unique Dirty Mind dips for certain special poops
  • Rotten hearts will now be replaced by half red hearts in room layouts that contain them if they haven't been unlocked yet
  • Brimstone/Technology+Ipecac+Ludovico now only starts exploding one second after entering a room and no longer explodes on contact with room boundaries (this could cause unavoidable damage)
  • Added unique appearances for Book of Virtues wisps created from Delirious and Mom's Bracelet
