Hades is a rogue-like dungeon crawler in which you defy the god of death as you hack and slash your way out of the Underworld of Greek myth.

Defy the god of death as you hack and slash your way out of the Underworld in this rogue-like dungeon crawler from the creators of Bastion and Transistor.

It’s never the same experience twice: Each time you play, you’ll combine the divine might of various Olympian gods with your own, brave nefarious new challenges, and unravel more of the story featuring our award-winning art, audio, and narrative.

As the immortal Prince of the Underworld, you'll wield the powers and mythic weapons of Olympus to break free from the clutches of the god of the dead himself, while growing stronger and unraveling more of the story with each unique escape attempt.

The Olympians have your back! Meet Zeus, Athena, Poseidon, and many more, and choose from their dozens of powerful Boons that enhance your abilities. There are thousands of viable character builds to discover as you go.



Private Division and Supergiant Games announced their partnership to publish the physical edition of Hades, winner of over 50 Game of the Year awards.

Hades will be available on PS5, PS4, Xbox X|S and Xbox One on August 13, 2021.  

The physical version of Hades that includes additional bonus items will be published by Private Division and is now available for preorder in the Private Division store and at various retailers for an MSRP of $29.99. This edition of Hades will include a booklet containing artwork from the game’s Art Director, Jen Zee, as well as a redeemable code for Hades’ soundtrack. The first-run prints of the retail PlayStation and Xbox copies will include an eye-catching metallic foil detailing across the cover art, perfect for individuals looking to add a standout piece to their shelf.

Playing Hades on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S results in a technical boost, with the action running at 4K at a target 60fps. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game perform at 1080p at a target 60fps. In addition, Hades features enhanced controller vibration and lighting on the PlayStation 5 DualSense controller.

The PlayStation 4 version of Hades, both physical and digital, include a free upgrade to the digital PlayStation 5 version. The Xbox versions of Hades use Smart Delivery, allowing access to both the Xbox One title and the Xbox Series X|S title.  

A fully-voiced cast of colorful, larger-than-life characters is waiting to meet you! Grow your relationships with them, and experience thousands of unique story events as you learn about what's really at stake for this big, dysfunctional family.

New surprises await each time you delve into the ever-shifting Underworld, whose guardian bosses will remember you. Use the powerful Mirror of Night to grow permanently stronger, and give yourself a leg up the next time you run away from home.

Permanent upgrades mean you don't have to be a god yourself to experience the exciting combat and gripping story. Though, if you happen to be one, crank up the challenge and get ready for some white-knuckle action that will put your well-practiced skills to the test.

The rich, atmospheric presentation and unique melding of gameplay and narrative that's been core to Supergiant's games is here in full force: spectacular hand-painted environments and a blood-pumping original score bring the Underworld to life.

Currently available to PC (Steam or Epic Games store) and Nintendo Switch, Hades is coming to PS5, PS4, Xbox X|S and Xbox One on August 13, 2021.
