What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

TLDR: When Hades launches in Steam Early Access, it'll already be a big feature-rich game, filled with thrilling action, dozens of colorful characters, and the rich worldbuilding Supergiant is known for. We designed it for Early Access from the ground up, so you could help us make it even better by our v1.0 launch in the second half of 2020.


In terms of how we will run our Steam Early Access: We plan to deliver a Major Update approximately once every eight weeks, closely followed by a series of smaller patches to smooth out any issues. Each Major Update will be heavily informed by player feedback, while fitting into our broader goals for the game, and containing the kinds of surprises and touches you expect from Supergiant.

In the game client, we have a countdown to the next Major Update, as well as a longform development roadmap where you can see how we're tracking against our goals, check our development priorities, and get a preview of what's to come in our next Major Update.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect to leave Early Access sometime in the second half of 2020.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of Hades will feature the complete ending to the story, as well as additional narrative content and other finishing touches across all aspects of the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We are gearing up to launch Hades on Steam Early Access on December 10.

We designed Hades as an Early Access game from the ground up. Our foremost goal was to see if we could create something great in partnership with our community -- a game that was true to our values about design, worldbuilding, and storytelling, and could naturally evolve based on the feedback we'd get along the way. Every aspect of the game, from its modular structure to its approach to narrative, flow from this idea.

By the time Hades launches in Early Access here on Steam, the game structure will be mostly complete, so you'll be able to battle all the way from the lowest reaches of the Underworld up to the surface. By the numbers, here is what we'll have in the game:

+ 4 Main Biomes, plus the main hub
+ 7 Boss Fights
+ 8 Olympians, each with 12+ unique Boons
+ 5 Main Weapons, each with 2 alternate Aspects
+ 25 Different Foes
+ 28 Story Characters
+ 20+ Music Tracks

Note: We are currently evaluating localization options as part of our Early Access.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We do not expect to increase the price of Hades after Early Access is complete.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Feedback from our player community shapes all aspects of our plans, and helps us develop the game in a balanced, problem-free state.

Players will be able to provide us with valuable feedback simply by playing the game; an optional menu setting lets you anonymously transmit gameplay data to us (no personal identifying information is included), which we use to inform balancing decisions as we move forward.

An in-game tool is available to send us any bug reports in the context they appear. We will also be looking out for for written feedback on our Discord server.”

About This Game

Hades is a rogue-like dungeon crawler that combines the best aspects of Supergiant's critically acclaimed titles, including the fast-paced action of Bastion, the rich atmosphere and depth of Transistor, and the character-driven storytelling of Pyre.


As the immortal Prince of the Underworld, you'll wield the powers and mythic weapons of Olympus to break free from the clutches of the god of the dead himself, while growing stronger and unraveling more of the story with each unique escape attempt.


The Olympians have your back! Meet Zeus, Athena, Poseidon, and many more, and choose from their dozens of powerful Boons that enhance your abilities. There are thousands of viable character builds to discover as you go.


A fully-voiced cast of colorful, larger-than-life characters is waiting to meet you! Grow your relationships with them, and experience hundreds of unique story events as you learn about what's really at stake for this big, dysfunctional family.


New surprises await each time you delve into the ever-shifting Underworld, whose guardian bosses will remember you. Use the powerful Mirror of Night to grow permanently stronger, and give yourself a leg up the next time you run away from home.


Permanent upgrades mean you don't have to be a god yourself to experience the exciting combat and gripping story. Though, if you happen to be one, crank up the challenge and get ready for some white-knuckle action that will put your well-practiced skills to the test.


The rich, atmospheric presentation and unique melding of gameplay and narrative that's been core to Supergiant's games is here in full force: spectacular hand-painted Underworld environments and a blood-pumping original score bring the Underworld to life.
