Hades 2 official artwork and logo

A fair bit of time has gone by since Hades 2 was first announced, but I'm happy to say that we now have at least a bit more information about it. First and foremost, Hades 2 will be heading into Early Access (both on Steam and the Epic Games Store) in Q2, 2024, though no exact release date has been announced just yet.

Much like its predecessor, the initial version of Hades 2 will come with a sizable amount of content, which will then be expanded through a variety of updates guided by player feedback. These types of updates will bring with them additional characters (likely meaning non-playable ones), new and expanded storylines, deeper interactions, and naturally, more areas to explore and enemies to clobber.

What some of this looks like in action, that you can check out through the original announcement trailer:

It's also worth mentioning that Supergiant Games will be running a limited technical test at some point in Q2, 2024, shortly before Hades 2 actually goes into Early Access. The purpose of this test will be to find any technical or compatibility issues that the inhouse team may have missed, so if you feel like helping out... or just playing Hades 2 a bit ahead of schedule, make sure to keep an eye out for the inevitable sign-up form.

Once more information becomes available, ideally alongside an actual release date, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can learn a little bit more about Hades 2 over at the official FAQ.
