The Binding of Isaac, a critically acclaimed indie game by Nicalis, received its final expansion pack today. Repentance is now available for purchase on Steam. The developer has confirmed that the expansion pack will also release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox at a later date.

Repentance is not a stand-alone expansion because it requires you to get the base game and previous DLCs to purchase it. Thankfully, you are in luck as the game and past expansion packs are currently having a massive sale. You can buy The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth and both Afterbirth AND Afterbirth+ content packs for only $17.97. They are available for separate purchases as well.

The Repentance delivers new stuff into the game, such as gameplay changes, balancing tweaks, bug fixes, and much more. The changes made to the Hard Mode are mentioned below.

Hard Mode Changes:

  • Reduced the frequency of tinted rocks.
  • Reduced the soul heart drop rate from blue/purple fireplaces to 10% (normal mode percentage is the usual 25%).
  • Shops can randomly be lower level, even with upgrades unlocked for them.
  • IV Bag now only pays out with one coin per use, to match the payout rate of blood donation machines in Hard mode.
  • Added new "micro batteries" that restore two bars of charge.
  • Shot speed for many classic enemies has been increased.
  • Increased the charging speed of Horseman bosses.
  • Does not prevent rooms marked as "lower difficulty" from spawning anymore, but makes them less likely to appear.
  • Bomb Bums and Key Masters no longer adhere to the six payment minimum of beggars in Hard mode, allowing payouts earlier than before.
  • The reduction of heart drops has been changed to -33% (previously -65%), and bosses can drop hearts again.

The complete patch notes are available here and they are quite big so take your time. You can purchase the Repentance expansion pack over here.
