Supergiant’s next game, Hades 2, a sequel to the hit Hades game, was revealed at The Game Awards. Hades 2 will be set in the same universe with what looks like some 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 opens with her training with a masked mentor, and it’s revealed that their joint objective is to kill Chronos.
New character Moros (Doom Incarnate) comments that this is an opportunity for the protagonist to “make a better future for us all.” Other new faces like Nemesis and Apollo make short appearances in the trailer. A few of the characters also refer to the protagonist as a witch–giving more hints as to what her arsenal of weapons may look like.
Chronos is the god of time, and appears to be the primary antagonist. Hades’ voice narrates, “He is no mere Titan. He is time itself, and time cannot be stopped.” Melinoë ends the teaser by saying, “Wait for me, father. We’ll be there soon.”
Hades 2 is available to wishlist on Steam and the Epic Store. It’s so far only confirmed for PC but is planned for consoles as well. Supergiant says it will share more information about availability on other platforms at a later date. According to the Steam page, Supergiant game plans to develop Hades 2 in a similar way to Hades and incorporate player feedback. That means Hades 2 should enter Early Access at some point in the future.
