Hades 2 – Release Date, Early Access, Platforms, and more

Prepare to revist Hades.

Hades is easily one of my favorite rogue-like games, and one of the reasons I enjoy the genre so much. So when Supergiant Games announced Hades II, and it have Melinoë as the protagonist as she follows in her brother's footsteps, I was beyond thrilled. Zagreus became one of my favorite protagonists, and I can't wait to play as Melinoë.

Everything we know about Hades 2

Hades followed the story of Zagreus as he tried to escape the Underworld and the grasp of his father, Hades. While we don't know who the princess is, Melinoë would make sense as she speaks to her father, presumably Hades, who is chained up, on her quest to take down Kronus, the Titan of time. Here is everything we know about Hades II.

What is the release date of Hades 2

Supergiant Games has confirmed an early access release in Q2 of 2024 for Hades II. You can follow the official Supergiant Games Twitter for more information and future updates.

Is Hades 2 early access?

Hades II will launch in early access like the original Hades. This gives the developer time to adjust the game based on fan feedback. Many early access titles feature a discounted price during the early access period as well. Those interested in the title can likely purchase it in early access and then wait for the full release to play the game.

How to join the Hades 2 Technical Test

While a technical test has been announced, no date was set for this yet. Additionally, the details on how to join the Hades II technical test have not yet been revealed, except it will be limited to a small group of players. We will update this post with more details as they become available.

What platforms will Hades 2 be on?

We have not yet received information on what platforms Hades II will release on. However, we know that the original Hades was released on multiple platforms. It didn't come to all at launch, so it may be some time before it becomes available on all platforms. The early access will be available on PC through Steam add Epic Games, but this does not mean it is exclusive to this platform in full release.

Hades 2 Trailer

The official reveal of Hades II was given during The Games Awards 2022. We got a good look at the familiar but expanded gameplay of the original.
