Supergiant’s next game, Hades 2, a sequel to the hit Hades game, was unveiled at The Game Awards. Hades 2 will be set in the same universe, with seemingly new faces from the Greek pantheon and similar roguelike gameplay. The game is currently in development.
Unlike the first Hades game, Hades 2 features a female protagonist, Melinoë, who is Zagreus’ sister and is called the Princess of the Underworld. The trailer begins with their training with a masked mentor and it is revealed that their common goal is to kill Chronos.
New character Moros (Doom Incarnate) comments that this is an opportunity for the protagonist to “create a better future for all of us”. Other new faces like Nemesis and Apollo make brief appearances in the trailer. Some of the characters also refer to the protagonist as a witch – giving further hints as to what her arsenal of weapons might look like.
Chronos is the god of time and seems to be the main antagonist. Hades’ voice says, “He’s not just a titan. He is time itself, and time cannot be stopped.” Melinoë ends the teaser by saying, “Wait for me father. We’re almost there.”
Hades 2 is available on Steam and the Epic Store in wishlist. It’s only confirmed for PC so far, but it’s also planned for consoles. Supergiant says it will release more information about availability on other platforms at a later date. According to the Steam page, Supergiant game plans to develop Hades 2 similarly to Hades and incorporate player feedback. That means Hades 2 should enter Early Access at some point in the future.
