Following the huge success of its predecessor, Hades, which was named Polygon’s Game of the Year in 2020, the gaming community has been anticipating Hades 2 ever since Supergiant Games released it. The developers have now shed light on the game’s progress and its journey towards Early Access.
Supergiant Games has revealed that Hades 2 is set to make its debut in Early Access on platforms like Steam and the Epic Games Store between April and June 2024. Many fans might be wondering why the game isn’t launching in Early Access immediately.
The developers have addressed this, emphasizing their commitment to delivering a game that matches, if not surpasses, the content volume of the original Hades when it first entered Early Access. They aim to ensure that even in its Early Access phase, Hades 2 offers a fulfilling experience to players.
Before the official Early Access launch, Supergiant plans to conduct a technical test involving a select group of players. This approach mirrors their strategy with the 2020 Hades, where the Early Access phase was punctuated with significant updates that incorporated player feedback, refining gameplay, and adding core content.
