Supergiant Games announce Hades (EPIC games store)


Oct 30, 2017
Early Access on Epic games store, available now for $19.99

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.

Hades is a living game in active development: Expect regular updates introducing new features, events, characters, weapons, powers, environments, and more. We think developing Hades in Early Access is key to making it the best game it can be, which is our goal.
From the FAQ (about Epic game's store launch/other platforms) since it will be a popular question.

Why is Hades available only via the Epic Games store? Will it come to other platforms?

We’ve never launched a game into Early Access before, and our players have come to expect complete, self-contained games from us ever since Bastion’s debut in 2011. With Hades, we knew we really wanted to create a game we could develop in partnership with the community, and from talking to the folks at Epic, we realized their store would be the perfect place to conduct our latest experiment.

Our focus during Early Access will be on making Hades the best game possible. If you’re the sort of player who’s open to and interested in experiencing a game like ours take shape over time, you’ll be able to take part in its journey on the Epic Games store. If you’d prefer to wait until the game is 100% complete, we expect Hades will eventually be available on a variety of platforms, once Early Access is complete.

Please please please mean that Supergiant will release Transistor on Xbox if this comes there.

One of my favorite devs. Going to wait for finished game to play though I know it will be good.

Absolutely massive Supergiant fan; my brother named his dog Rucks. Will not be playing this as long as it’s an Epic exclusive.

Have to say, I'm pretty glad it's not more Pyre >.< I had my fill about 60% through that game, and had to push to finish. Gorgeous art and music though, which they've brought across to this project, so that's rad.

Huh, what I saw actually didn't interest me that much. Something about the art style this time (at least during gameplay) wasn't doing it for me like Transistor and Bastion did.

Will probably still end up checking it out though!
