After teasing some farewell levels for Celeste late last year, one of the game’s co-creators, Matt Thorson, took to Twitter yesterday to detail exactly what we can expect from the upcoming DLC. Coming free to all platforms, these additional levels will be leaving the iconic strawberries behind, but they will feature a few new items and mechanics to make up for it.
Unlike the other chapters in Celeste, these levels will compose one continuous chapter and will not feature a B-side. That’s probably a good thing, as these levels are supposed to be the hardest yet, with Thorson claiming that they are “after the current hardest levels in difficulty.” There’s no word on when this DLC will be available, though unfortunately they won’t be ready in time for the game’s first anniversary on January 25th.
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
-There are some new items/mechanics
-Free on all platforms
