Like Zagreous’ never-ending quest to get out of the Underworld, the sequel to the fantastic roguelike Hades will force us to keep fighting through new levels of demons and monsters. We’re not upset because that game was one of the best ones released in 2020, and no one expected a sequel, let alone one announced so soon.
Hades 2 will be the first sequel that Supergiant Games has ever made, which makes sense, given how popular and successful the first game was. Roguelikes don’t usually get sequels, so it’s unclear how Hades 2 will differ from the first. We got all the information we could from the jaws of Cerberus, so you don’t have to dive into the depths of the Underworld yourself.
Hades 2 Release Date
Hades 2 has no release date quite yet. But it looks like the team has been working on it since early 2021, and just like the first, it will be released first in early access. Supergiant said more information about this early access period would be released in 2023, but that doesn’t mean it will start that year.
The first Hades was in early access for almost two years, but we know that a slightly bigger team is working on Hades 2 from the start so that this game may reach version 1.0 a bit faster.

Hades 2 Platforms
Hades 2 is scheduled to come out on PC and consoles, but it wasn’t clear which consoles. We can probably assume that the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S are in the works, but the fate of last-generation systems and the Switch is still unknown. Only PCs can play the game during the early access period.

Hades 2 Trailer
The stylish and well-animated trailer for Hades 2 shows us Melinoe, the Princess of the Underworld and an immortal witch. She is the new main character. She is also based on a mythological figure because she is the brother of Zagreus, the main character in the first game.
It will be a direct follow-up to what happened in Hades, but it will have its own story. You’ll find some interesting links if you know about the first game or Greek mythology.
Melinoe is on a mission to free Zeus from Chronos, the Titan of Time. Chronos, Hades, and other gods have escaped the Underworld to start a war against the Gods of Olympus. Melinoe is trying to stop them.
Hades 2 Gameplay
The trailer shows some gameplay that resembles the first one. The view and basic flow of clearing rooms, choosing between gods’ gifts, and using special attacks look like they will return. Also, you will do many runs with rooms and enemies that change every time.
Melinoe is a witch, so Hades 2 will have a broader range of spells and melee options. There were also hints at interactions in the hub world, which were a big part of Hades. Once again, you can talk to different characters and learn more about them.
No other returning features like decorations, building relationships, changing the difficulty, or other challenges were shown, but they are likely to come back in some form.
