What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

TLDR: Hades is already a big, feature-rich game, filled with thrilling action, dozens of colorful fully-voiced 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 sometime in 2020.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In terms of how we will run our Early Access here on Steam: 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 is 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?

“Our plan is for Hades to be in in Early Access until sometime in 2020. While we don't have an exact date yet for when the game will be complete, you can count on us to ship at least a couple of Major Updates between our Steam Early Access launch and v1.0.”

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, plus additional narrative content, Steam Achievements and Trading Cards, and other finishing touches across all aspects of the game.

The Early Access version does offer a unique experience in its own right as we grow the story in a serial fashion, from update to update, often adding bits of content especially for the current stage of development. By way of analogy, if you would rather watch a show an episode at a time instead of binging the whole season, we think you'll especially enjoy this game in Early Access.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

Hades is already the biggest, most feature-rich, most replayable game we have ever made. The game structure is mostly intact, so you can battle all the way from the lowest reaches of the Underworld up to the surface. However, we have some key new content pieces still to come, such as a new Olympian character and a new main weapon. We also have to create the ending of the game (something we always allot plenty of time to), and are continuing to iterate on and polish just about everything.

By the numbers, here is what we have in the game right now:

+ 4 Main Biomes, plus the main hub
+ 7 Boss Fights, plus 3 unique variants
+ 8 Olympians, each with their unique Boons
+ 5 Main Weapons
+ 8 Collectible Resources
+ 25 Different Foes
+ 28 Story Characters
+ 40 'Daedalus' Weapon Mods
+ 110+ God Boons
+ 26 Unique Keepsakes
+ 23 Music Tracks
+ 10,000+ Voice Lines
+ Mirror of Night Progression System
+ Pact of Punishment Scaling Endgame
+ Weapon Aspects Upgrade System
+ House Contractor Cosmetics & Modifiers
+ Wretched Broker Resource Exchange
+ Fated List Quest System
+ God Mode & Hell Mode
+ plus, many other features and surprises not list here!

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

Localization: We are working on text translations in variety of languages, including: French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Korean, and Simplified Chinese. Please note our translation quality is rough first-pass, and we have many display issues to work through as well.”

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

“We do not expect to increase the retail 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 Hades while staying focused on features and issues with the biggest impact on your experience.

We will be looking out for for written feedback on our Discord server and here in our Steam community. Additionally, an in-game tool is available for sending us any bug reports in the context they appear. In every one of our patches, expect to see a significant percentage of changes marked as having been directly inspired by community feedback.

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.”

About This Game


Hades is a god-like 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.

BATTLE OUT OF HELL

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.

UNLEASH THE FURY OF OLYMPUS

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.


BEFRIEND GODS, GHOSTS, AND MONSTERS

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.

BUILT FOR REPLAYABILITY

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.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE

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.

SIGNATURE SUPERGIANT STYLE

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.
