Hades II now available in early access

Divine sequel to the roguelike dungeon crawler Hades II is now available in early access for PC via Steam and epic games store for $29.99, developer Supergiant Games announced.

The early access version of Hades II already has more environments, enemies, and fully voiced characters than the full version of the original hellbut it is not complete and is missing areas, characters, enemies, narrative events and key systems.

Over the course of Early Access, Supergiant Games will release a major update every few months with new features and content, followed shortly after by patches to fix any issues that arise. The first major update will come out later this year.

While Supergiant Games doesn’t have a specific end date for Early Access, expect Hades II remain in early access at least until the end of 2024.

Here’s an overview of the game, via its store pages:


Supergiant Games’ first sequel builds on the best aspects of the original god-like roguelike dungeon crawler into an all-new, action-packed, infinitely replayable experience rooted in the underworld of Greek myth and its deep connections to the dawn of witchcraft
