Announced last night at The Game Awards, Hades is Supergiant Game’s next title, casting you as the son of Hades, Greek god of the Underworld, on a mission to escape his Father’s macabre realm.
But you don’t have to wait to play Hades. Supergiant both revealed and released this game into early access last night and it’s now available for $19.99 on the new Epic Games store.
Hades is a rogue-like dungeon crawler where you defy the god of death as you hack and slash your way out of the Underworld of Greek myth. It’s never the same experience twice: Each time you play, you’ll combine the divine might of various Olympian gods with your own, brave nefarious new challenges, and unravel more of the story featuring our award-winning art, audio, and narrative.
I’m intrigued by Supergiant’s delve into the world of Early Access: They’ve made it clear on their blog that Hades will be a ” living game in active development” and the we should “expect regular updates introducing new features, events, characters, weapons, powers, environments, and more.”
