The sequel to the critically acclaimed Hades, Hades 2 was announced at The Game Awards 2022 and marks indie developer Supergiant’s fifth game and first ever sequel.

Hades 2 was officially announced by Super Giant Games during the Game Awards 2022. This surprised the world, as Supergiant had never released a sequel to their games.

But given the huge success of their first entry, Hades 2 was a very welcome addition. The sequel appears to follow a new protagonist, who carries a dagger in addition to a crescent blade for her weapons of choice.

Players control Melinoë, the immortal princess of the underworld, as she journeys deeper into the mythical realm. She is the sister of Zagreus, the playable character from Hades 1 and the son of Hades.

This game is a direct sequel to the original Hades and will therefore feature Easter eggs from the previous entry.

But for those who haven’t played the first game, don’t worry. Supergiant Games stated “No prior knowledge of the original Hades is necessary”.

As of now, there is no official release date for Hades 2. But there is news of early access and testing for the game.

According to the developer’s official blog, “Hades II will be available in Early Access for some time leading up to the full launch of v1.0. Expect more information about Hades II Early Access sometime in 2023.”
