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. There's no word on when this DLC will be available, though they unfortunately won't be ready in time for the game's first anniversary on January 25th.

If you're anything like me, you were probably ecstatic when Celeste got a Game of the Year nomination for The Game Awards 2018.
