When will the movie Hades 2 come out? Fans are excited to see what Supergiant Games has in store for the next game after Hades, which was a big indie hit. During The Game Awards 2022, the famous roguelike game was shown off. Even though their previous games got good reviews, Hades 2 is the first remake that Supergiant Games has ever made.
We have high hopes for the developers because the first Hades was so good that it made our list of the best PC games. So, now that all the small talk is over, let’s look at everything we know about Hades 2 so far, like videos, the story, and how to play.
Hades 2 Release Date
We think the most likely time for Hades 2 to come out is in 2024. Supergiant Games has said that a firm release date will be given when the game is closer to being done.
Supergiant game’s most relevant Twitter post related to the Hades 2 release date is from late 2022, it is given below. In that post, they talk about how the Supergiant studio’s next major project is Hades 2 and the Early access details will be coming out in 2023.

Hades 1 started early access in December 2018 and went on sale in September 2020. Based on the first game, we expect Hades 2 to come out on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, and PS5.
Hades 2 Early Access
The PC version of Hades 2 will have early access, just like the first game did. This will help keep the game’s balance in check. On their blog, Supergiant Games said that Hades 2 will be released for early access sometime in 2023. Hades 2 was first shown at The Game Awards 2022, so Summer Games Fest 2023 in June might be where we hear more about Hades 2 early access.
Hades 2 Trailer
During The Game Awards 2022, the first and only video for Hades 2 was shown. It starts with a cartoon scene with the main character of the game, Melino. She is fighting against Hecate, a Greek goddess who is often linked to witchcraft and who seems to be Melino’s tutor. After Hecate beats them, they talk for a while and then both say, “Death to Cronos.” Cronos is the leader of the Titans in Greek mythology and the father of Zeus, Hades, and their brothers.
The second part of the trailer shows how the game is played and some of the new places players can go. It also talks about Apollo, Nemesis, and Moros, who is Nyx’s son and with whom players will engage. At the end of the video, there is a still of Hades in chains warning about Cronos while Melino promises to save him.

Hades 2 Gameplay
In Hades 2, the player controls Melino, who is Hades’s daughter and the brother of Zagreus, the main character of the first game. Cronos has escaped from the Underworld. He wants to get back at the gods of Olympus for putting him there.
Supergiant has called Cronos the “Titan of Time,” which suggests that Cronos is a mix of the titan Cronos, who was the father of Zeus and Hades, and Chronos, who was the Greek god of time. The Greeks often thought that these two people were the same person. We know it’s hard to understand. The game takes place in the Underworld again, but this time there are brand-new places, enemies, and more.
Supergiant has said that you don’t have to have played Hades to understand the story of Hades 2, but there will be a lot of nods to the first game. The developers have said that the world will have even more references to the Greek myths and culture that made it so interesting the first time.
Even though we don’t know much about Hades 2 yet, it seems safe to assume that the gameplay is mostly the same as in the first game based on the announcement video. The roguelike features an isometric view are still there, and it looks like the Boons system is coming back, but this time the upgrades will come from a whole new pantheon of gods.
Also, unlike Zagreus, it seems like Melino focuses more on magic when fighting. Supergiant says that she is “an immortal witch and sorceress with powerful magical abilities” and “deadly skill with a variety of shadowy weapons.” Some parts of the trailer, like when she fights Hecate and when you play the game, show this magic.
