Return to the Underworld of Greek mythology with Supergiant Games’ Hades II, announced during The Game Awards 2022. You can watch the reveal trailer above. Set directly after the events of the first game, players must stop Chronos, the Titan of Time and the wicked father of Hades and his brothers, before he destroys Olympus. But how can you destroy Time itself?
From the developer:
Battle beyond the Underworld using dark sorcery as you take on the sinister Titan of Time in an all-new, action-packed, endlessly replayable experience rooted in the Underworld of Greek myth and its deep connections to the dawn of witchcraft.
As Melinoë, the immortal Princess of the Underworld, you’ll explore a bigger, deeper mythic world, vanquishing the Titan’s forces with the full might of Olympus behind you, in a sweeping story that continually unfolds through your every setback and accomplishment.
Like her brother Zagreus from the original game, Melinoë is not a character of our own invention, and is based on an ancient Underworld deity thought to be related to Hades. What little ancient mythology exists about her was more than enough to make us want to explore her story and connection to her family, and in so doing, expand on our vision of the Underworld!
