Celeste developer Matt Thorson announced that the planned celebration DLC won't be ready in time for Celeste's one-year anniversary on January 25. But as a bonus, the DLC chapter will be made free on all available platform.
Last year, Thorson announced that the Celeste team was working on some farewell Celeste levels that would be ready for early 2019. And while the DLC chapter is still a little further away, Thorson revealed some new details for what players can expect when they get the free DLC chapter.
Some Celeste DLC Chapter details: -It won't be ready for the anniversary on Jan 25th, sorry! -It's all one continuous chapter, no B-Side -It's after the current hardest levels in difficulty -No strawberries -There are some new items/mechanics -Free on all platforms— Matt Thorson (@MattThorson) January 12, 2019
Thorson says the Celeste DLC will be one continuous chapter with no B-Side. The chapter will take place after the current hardest levels in terms of difficulty, and that there will be no collectible strawberries, which are littered throughout the main Celeste stages and can be collected for extra difficulty. Thorson says there will be some new items and mechanics instead.
Celeste came out in January 2018 and became an early favorite of ours that year. Celeste took that momentum to become one of our top games of 2018 and earned our number two spot on our Top 20 Games of 2018 list. You can read our full Celeste review here.
