After launching last year for PC and Switch to exceptional praise, Supergiant Games’ roguelite Hades is out now for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One. It’s also available on Xbox Game Pass. Check out the release trailer below which sees protagonist Zagreus battling the Hydra along with some gameplay.
The story follows Zagreus as he attempts to escape the underworld which his father, Hades, lords over. This means venturing through different realms like Asphodel, Elysium and more, battling various foes and bosses along the way. To help Zagreus in his endeavor are Boons from the Olympian gods, bestowing abilities like Zeus’s lightning, Ares’s Doom procs and Athena’s deflection.
Of course, the other hook for Hades is its story and dialogue which sees new additions and developments in each run, whether it’s hearing NPCs remark on your failings or opening up more about their past.
