Director Matt Thorson isn’t talking about release dates until “we’re 100 percent sure.”
Matt Makes Games has been working hard on the upcoming free DLC for Celeste. Chapter 9 has been teased for several months now, and writer/director Matt Thorson has been revealing bits of information. Recently, however, he confirmed that the DLC chapter will have over 100 levels.
That’s a ton of content, and it wasn’t even expected to have a story from the outset either, which it does now. Thorson revealed in some recent tweets that the levels have been detailed for “weeks now”, but the team wasn’t committing to any release date. “We don’t like to talk release dates until we’re 100% sure, because as always we have missed every internal target we set for ourselves as the Chapter grew in scope. Sorry!”
Chapter 9 will be one continuous chapter featuring new items and mechanics. There won’t be any strawberries to collect, but you can expect these levels to be very tough. Given how enjoyable Celeste was (read our review here), we can’t wait to see what the development team has come up with this time. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
Celeste is currently available for Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
