Developer Supergiant Games announced Hades will launch for Windows PC via Steam Early Access on December 10. It is out now for Epic Games Store early access. The game will leave early access in the second half of 2020.

View the Steam Early Access trailer below:

Here is an overview of the game:

Hades is a rogue-like dungeon crawler that combines the best aspects of Supergiant’s critically acclaimed titles, including the fast-paced action of Bastion, the rich atmosphere and depth of Transistor, and the character-driven storytelling of Pyre.

Key Features:

  • Battle Out of Hell – 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.
  • Unleash the Fury of Olympus – 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.
  • Befriend Gods, Ghosts, and Monsters – A fully-voiced cast of colorful, larger-than-life characters is waiting to meet you! Grow your relationships with them, and experience hundreds of unique story events as you learn about what’s really at stake for this big, dysfunctional family.
  • Built for Replayability – 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.
  • Nothing is Impossible – 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.
  • Signature Supergiant Style – 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 Underworld environments and a blood-pumping original score bring the Underworld to life.

So they took EGS exclusivity for a year, but still want to release it on Steam, in an early access state, and take an extra 9 months?. Solid nope from me. Never again, Supergiant.

For the record, they stated in their original FAQ (now edited) that they would take the deal, to make sure it would be "the best game it could be", within a year of exclusivity on EGS, and now that's simply not even going to be a thing at all. They took the exclusivity money and now want double the money from Steam users, just in an ea form.
