The Binding of Isaac: Revelations is being released in a 'chapter' format. Each chapter adds a new floor, new items and, possibly, new characters to the game. Currently, three chapters have been planned for the mod.

Of the three, the first released was "Glacier". Released January 5th, 2018 on the Steam Workshop and the Modding of Isaac Website, Glacier added a plethora of content to the game, as well as a brand new floorpath to explore which was separate from the main game; which, at the time, was a modding feat of it's own.

On the 12th of January, 2018, a video titled 'The Binding of Isaac: Revelations Ch2 Reveal' was uploaded to the Team Revelations YouTube channel. The trailer shows Isaac standing on a broken mirror with a dust cloud in the background, then showing the text 'The Binding of Isaac: Revelations - Ch. 2 Enter the Tomb', teasing players on the next installment of the mod. Tomb released on October 13th of 2018 on the Steam Workshop. Tomb continued off of the floorpath created in Chapter One, adding in much more new content as well as reworking and adding new content into the first chapter.

On the 20th of October, 2018, a video titled 'Revelations Chapter 3 Reveal' was uploaded to the Team Revelations YouTube channel, showing the third installment to be called "Vestige"

Glacier[edit | edit source]

Revelations Chapter 1 Promo Art

Glacier is the first chapter to Revelations. It adds over 20 items, 4 trinkets, 1 new character, and 1 new alternative floorpath to the game. It also adds a variety of enemies and eight new bosses to the game. The chapter takes on an icy theme, with the chapter's enemies, bosses, etc all adhering to this same theme.

To access the Glacier floor, enter the shop on either the first or second floors in vanilla Afterbirth+ and there will be a door which will allow you to travel to Glacier 1 or Glacier 2, depending on which floor you entered it on. The floorpath is considered to be harder than the beginning vanilla floors, so to encourage players to take the path, the shops in the Glacier have guaranteed Revelations items for sale in a special vending machine separate from the other shop items. Glacier 1 has one Revelations item on sale, and Glacier 2 has one Revelations item for full price. There is also a chance to find the Dante Satan Room in Glacier as well.

Glacier adds new mechanics to the game, adding to the mod's theme of ice. Ice tiles may appear in rooms, causing the player to slide around; ice creep may replace other forms of creep in certain instances and will have the same effect as the ice tiles; and Chill Rooms are a room type that will freeze the player's head if they are far away from a source of heat for too long, rendering them unable to fire.

On Glacier 2, the Mirror Room Door will also spawn, allowing you to enter the Mirror to fight Narcissus.

On March 17th, 2018, Glacier received a content update dubbed the "Champion Update". The update added champion variants to all of the bosses added in the mod, as well as some other minor content.

Tomb[edit | edit source]

Revelations Chapter 2 Promo Art

Tomb is the second chapter to Revelations. It adds over 25 items, 2 trinkets, 1 new character, and 1 new alternative floorpath to the game. It also adds a variety of new enemies and seven challenging bosses.

To access the Tomb floor, enter the shop on either the third or fourth floors in vanilla Afterbirth+ and there will be a door which will allow you to travel to Tomb 1 or Tomb 2, depending on which floor you entered it on. You can also access Tomb by beating Glacier 2's boss. The floorpath is considered to be harder than Glacier or Caves, so to encourage players to take the path, the shops in the Tomb have guaranteed Revelations items for sale, contained in a special vending machine separate from other shop items.

Tomb adds new mechanics to the game, adding to the mod's theme of ancient tombs. Trap tiles may appear on the ground, and when the player steps on one of them, it will activate an event depending on which tile type you stepped on. There are two types of enemy rooms in the Tomb: Tiled rooms, featuring traps and rag enemies; and sand rooms, with sand enemies and sand castles.

Tomb also added a new mechanic called Shrine Rooms. These rooms have two statues, both with varying effects which depend on the statues shown. The player must chose one of the statues before leaving the room, adding the chosen statue's effects to the current (and possibly future) floors.

In Tomb 2, the Mirror Room Door will also spawn, allowing you to enter the Mirror to fight Narcissus 2.

Upon release, Team Revelations promised a "content patch" on the Steam Workshop page one month prior to its release. After missing the one month mark, Team Revelations said that the update would be dubbed the "Sin Update" and that they would take more time to develop the update to add more content to it. The Sin Update released on June 21, 2019, with a trailer which showcased some of the update's content.

In true tease fashion, we’ll be unveiling a new boss in the splash each day. Who interests you most? Which shadowy figure do you think will be next?

Drizzle As the skies darken, as the rain lashes, Drizzle descends. Clutching an umbrella and an affectionate disposition. As her hair writhes and hisses, the salty gorgon waits patiently for the storm to break. And break it will.

Drizzle is the first Vestige boss to be revealed, coming in Chapter 3. Who’s next?

Mahalath Golly, what's that familiar stench? After years of living in her filthy car, feasting on rats and pigeons since losing her last gig, Mahalath is ready to give Isaac one last chance. This time however, thanks to a certain upstart rival, she's feeling quite competitive and more nauseous than ever!

Which boss do you think is next?

Consumed Frightened and trapped, The Consumed clutches his doll as he sits in a far corner of Vestige. He can imagine all too well the terrors that burn through these ruins... Will anyone respond to his cries for help? Can anyone break the chains that keep him here?

Who else lurks in this wasteland of gluttony?

Cerberus Warning! Worm level: 350%! What do you get when you cross three worms and another half of a worm? Cerberus -- the wigglest, wormiest foe in Vestige! Does Isaac have what it takes to vanquish three and a half entire worms? Well, if you ask me that's up to the worms, but they're not talking, especially the worm that's only half of a worm. Good luck worming your way out of this one, Isaac! There's no way you can outworm three and a half worms!

But what of Vestige's top predators that aren't made of any worms at all (let alone three and a half worms)?

Puncture Puncture, Puncture, Puncture... a corpulent cretin, a bestial brute of a blob, food goes right through him! He scarfs down whole anything that he sees, and depending how much gunk he gets in his eyes, anything that he doesn't see! Even sweet old Punker gets corrupted by the unholy halls of Vestige.

Will there be any Isaac left for the others?

Flaretoma Do you hear that thunder? What's that up above? A bird? A plane!? No! It's a furious spider shoved inside a flying tumor! King of the skies, the massive Flaretoma burns with rage! And boy, can he not stand these intruders in his Vestige! He'll spot you down below and hunt you down in a flash!

Is there anything he fears?
