Hades is a roguelike dungeon-crawler where you play as the Prince of the Underworld as you try to escape the grasp of the god of the dead, Hades. You’ll meet some familiar gods along the way like Zeus, Athena, and Poseidon as they will help you upgrade your abilities. After each death, some of your progression carries over, and potentially learn more about the story. According to the description on Steam, the game combines elements from each of its previous releases.
Initially, Hades was only available through the Epic Games Store. Since its launch last December, there have been several major updates that have not only fixed some of the problems of the game, but have added a significant amount of content. While an exact date for Hades‘ 1.0 release date has yet to be revealed, Supergiant aims to get it out in the “latter half of 2020.”
