One of the best platformers of this generation, and one we would put up against any other, is officially getting additional content. Celeste won our Best Platformer award because it is exactly that, the best platformer.
Many have also been able to appreciate this wonderful indie game and many outlets have showered it with praise. At the end of 2018, it was revealed the game had exceeded expectations and sold over 500,000 copies.
Celeste sold over 500,000 copies in 2018. Thank you everyone who played it. We never expected it to reach so many people.

For those who haven’t gotten enough of Celeste, or for those who simply need another excuse to dive back in, the game will be receiving additional content that will be free for all platforms. It’s great to see a small game make so many gamers happy and for developers to make a profit that allows them to release free content. A round of applause for developer Matt Makes Games for all their success and, here at The Loot Gaming, we wish them even more.
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
