The acclaimed indie platformer’s final chapter is almost here.
Celeste was quite the darling last year. The game garnered a large degree of acclaim and financial success as both a strong platformer as well as a deep dive into the psychological pitfalls of depression. It has seen several updates since its initial release, and now it’s time to say farewell, as the final update is upon us.
The game’s developers have renamed themselves Extremely OK Games (changed from Matt Makes Game), and they announced that Chapter 9: Farewell will release at the beginning of next week. It will add 100 levels, 40 minutes of new music, and new items and mechanics that we have yet to see. As of now, this is slated to be the final update to the game, with the team now moving on to their next project.
Celeste is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. Chapter 9 will launch September 9th on all platforms, though the team does note there could be a slight delay for the Xbox One version.
