With a mythological story, a bi-sexual protagonist and a place where Witchcraft meets the underworld, can you be surprised that Hades 2 is one of the most highly-anticipated sequels in the roguelike genre for 2024 at eSports betting sites?

Fans and critics received Hades’s debut in 2018 extremely well; it even managed to collect IGN’s Game of the Year award in 2020. Indie game developers, Supergiant, excelled and outperformed the roguelike games that came before by delivering Hades on a platter with reactive writing, an excellent combat system and a sleek, stylish design.

As the Hades 2 technical test has rolled out and its Early Access release is just around the corner, let’s preview everything we know about the game so far. 

Hades 2 Storyline

Hades 2 is a direct continuation of the previous game, set at an unspecified period following Zagreus’ adventures in the Underworld. It is mostly based on Greek mythology and focuses on Chronos, the Titan of Time, who is notorious for being a malevolent father to Hades and his siblings. Having successfully fled confinement in the Underworld, Chronos is now engaged in a conflict with Olympus.

Although Hades 2 is a direct continuation of the original game, Supergiant emphasizes that prior knowledge of Hades or Greek mythology is not necessary to enjoy the sequel.


Hades 2 Gameplay

With all-new locations, upgrade systems and challenges, Hades 2 doesn’t steer clear from the original, as players can expect the rogue-like dungeon crawler gameplay mechanics they know and love.

While recognizable, gameplay under the game’s brand new protagonist, Melinoe, has seen Supergiant make subtle but significant changes. While Zagreus, the original protagonist of Hades, is focused on sheer might and overpowering adversaries, Melinoe is mostly focused on battlefield awareness and strategic placement.

Although each weapon introduces variations and distinctions, her overall moveset adheres to a consistent pattern that will be instantly noticeable by veteran players of the franchise.

Hades 2 Early Access & Release Date

Supergiant revealed, similar to the original, that Hades 2 will be released in Q2 2024 as an Early Access release on Steam. The purpose of Early Access is for players to enjoy an incomplete version of the game and give feedback ahead of the official launch.

Although Early Access won’t provide a complete version of Hades 2, Supergiant has promised that, much like the first game, it will still have plenty of content and will be worthwhile.

Hades 2 Trailer & Technical Test

It’s been a long wait for the Hades community since the official reveal trailer for the sequel dropped over one year ago.

However, with the recent technical test rollout going to those who signed up for the opportunity, we’ve received more in-depth game analysis.
