Hades Sells Over 1 Million Copies

700,000 units were sold during the game’s early access period.


Supergiant Games’ Hades recently released for PC and Nintendo Switch to great praise. It’s had an incredible journey since going into early access on the Epic Games Store in December 2018 and the sales have reflected that. According to the developer on Twitter, Hades has crossed one million units sold.

It noted that 700,000 units were purchased during the early access period but that’s still a whopping 300,000 units sold in the few days since it launched. The impact of early access was noted by the developer, as it thanked players who opted in during the process. “We designed Hades for Early Access, believing you could help us make a better game. That’s just what you did.”

Of course, with how fantastic Hades is, it’s a given that other players will want a chance to play it. But are there plans for an Xbox One or even a PS4 version? Supergiant Games noted that it would “be considering opportunities to bring the game to additional platforms down the line.”

Hades is set primarily in the Underworld as Prince Zagreus, the son of Hades, struggles to escape. Doing so means traversing the realms of Tartarus, Asphodel and Elysium, besting all manner of foes. However, along with some demonic armaments, Zagreus can also accept boons from various deities in the Greek Pantheon, allowing a variety of different effects. Stay tuned for more details on the title in the coming months.
