Hades just got its last major early access update before launch

Hades has been in early access for over a year now, though you'd hardly know it—what with being on RPS's list of best action games already. Supergiant Games have now pushed out what they say is the last update standing between the hellish roguelike and an escape from early access. The Blood Price update is out now and the next big release will be version…

Someone drew the gods from Hades as adorable Animal Crossing villagers

Animal Crossing: New Horizons may only be on Switch, but that will not stop me from finding ways to talk about it in relation to my fave PC games. We've already seen loads of the adorable mashups of Isabelle and Doom Guy, frolicking amongst fields of demons, and now I want to show you the cutest piece of Hades fan art where someone has drawn…

Hades Nighty Night update includes punchy gloves and a tiny rat

Grecian roguelike Hades has taken one more step towards leaving early access hell. The Nighty Night update came out last night, unleashing some new spikey gloves, a trip to a library, and a tiny, evil, rat. There's loads more besides, but that new weapon, the Twin Fists of Malphon, is the highlight. I am looking forward to punching small malevolent rodents.

Hades heads onto Steam, no longer Epic exclusive

Good news, Epic Store renouncers. You can now play Supergiant's latest game without getting your fingers dirty, as Hades has landed on Steam and is no longer exclusive to Epic. The Hellenic action roguelike is still in early access, but it's also still really good. It's plenty polished, with swords that wallop and dodges that delight. I've played for dozens of hours already, and haven't…

Epic Games Store exclusive Hades will hop on the Steam train this December

Supergiant Games launched Hades exclusively on the Epic Games Store at the end of 2018, becoming one of the OG combatants in the Great Store War that followed in 2019. Though we’ll never truly know why they set-up in a store that's paying games to be there, they’ve decided that a year is enough time to be away from Steam. Hades is coming to Early…

Hades adds a final battle, is still really good

Hades can be hell to play. This is Supergiant's early access roguelite, a different beast from the story-rich fare of previous games Bastion and Pyre. I've been dipping in and out for months, compelled to batter the end-game hydra once with every weapon. Then an update from a while back added a new area that kept grinding me up under the wheels of demonic chariots,…

Hades takes The High Speed Update slow with fully voiced patch notes

The increasingly great roguelite dungeon crawl Hades has just rolled out another early access update. The High Speed Update is focused on Hermes, messenger of the gods. He's fast, but developers Supergiant want you to slow down and ruminate a little on their efforts, so they got voice-of-gold Logan Cunningham to read the entire patch notes in character as The Storyteller. Personally I'd have asked for…

Epic Games Store starts its first big sale with a Stories Untold giveaway

It's a busy day over on the Epic Games Store. On top of the expected fortnightly giveaway - this time the excellent horror-adventure Stories Untold - they've launched their first big sale. You can snag Stories Untold here for free, and I highly recommend it even if point & click (or even parser-based) adventures aren't usually your thing. Developers No Code's upcoming followup, the space-disaster…

Say hello to Primordial Chaos in the first big Hades update

I'm a big fan of Hades. You'd think an early access roguelike wouldn't be a great fit for the Bastion devs, but I should never have doubted Supergiant's ability to knit a story around whatever genre or development structure they please. Last night saw the release of the Chaos Update, and there's something else lurking among the balance tweaks, art changes and new room types.…

Epic’s store launches with exclusives from Supergiant & Coffee Stain

In case you hadn't gleaned this detail from today's many posts mentioning games launching on Epic's Store: Epic's new digital games store has now opened for business. While their "hand-curated set of games" only includes four you can actually buy right now, one of them is the surprise new game from the makers of Bastion and that's not a bad coup. Epic Games have managed…

Hades announced by Bastion & Pyre devs, already in early access

Supergiant Games, the makers of Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre tonight both announced and launched their next game. Hades is its name, and roguelikelike hack 'n' slash dungeon-crawling is its game. And as you'd expect from Supergiant, it's got a colourful illustrated style and a bit of a twang to its sound. It launched into early access alongside its announcement and, curiously, is currently exclusive to…
