New Blip: Hades II

Hades II is roguelike actioner and a follow-up to Hades, the breakout indie hit from Supergiant Games, the studio who also developed indie darlings Bastion and Transistor. The first game featured prince Zagreus, the defiant son of Hades, as he attempted to escape the underworld. This time around, you take on the role of Melinoƫ, Princess of the Underworld and sister to Zagreus, as she goes up against Chronos, the Titan of Time and father to Lord Hades. You'll once again be dungeon crawling your way through dark environments as you battle the denizens of the deep and interact with many legendary figures from Greek mythology. Melinoƫ is skilled in the art of witchcraft, which she uses to strike down her enemies, enhance her melee strikes, and tame familiars to stand at her side. Explore new areas, gain the support of the gods, and maybe... stop time itself.

The game's release date has yet to be determined, but an early access release is planned for PC sometime in 2023 (simultaneously on Steam and Epic), with console versions becoming available at a later date.
