The Binding of Isaac Rebirt PS4

Velocity 2X is arguably the best PlayStation 4 game of the year so far – and that’s despite it being given away for free with PlayStation Plus. Back when September’s lineup was announced, many deemed it the worst in quite some time, overlooking the fact that FuturLab’s super speedy shooter is seriously stellar. And sadly, if you’re one of those people that refuses to give indie games a go, then you’re going to be really disappointed with upcoming updates.

While we know that a stripped back version of DriveClub is set to hit the complimentary starting grid next month, Nicalis gaffer Tyrone Rodriguez has confirmed that The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth will comprise part of the Instant Game Collection in November. “This is the PlayStation Plus November game for North America and Europe,” he told an eager fan on the PlayStation Blog, presumably breaking some non disclosure agreements in the process.

For the uninitiated, the game – which was originally designed by Edmund McMillen of Super Meat Boy fame – is described as a blend of The Legend of Zelda and Smash TV. The difference here is that the title’s inspired by the Biblical story of the same name, meaning that the adventure sees you attempting to escape from your murderous mother. It’s heavy stuff, which prompted Nintendo to famously pass on the release. Sony doesn’t seem to care, though, as you’re getting it for free.
