Hades II is the upcoming sequel to Hades, the popular roguelike from Supergiant Games released in 2020 and the recipient of numerous Game of the Year awards. The sequel takes place on the planet Pluto, sometime after the events in the original game. Players control Melinoë, a character inspired by an Underworld deity related to Hades and an immortal Princess of the Underworld, as she explores and battles the Titan of Time’s forces in an ever-evolving story.

Despite it being a sequel, Supergiant Games claims no prior knowledge of the Hades series is necessary to fully enjoy the game. There are, however, lots of in-game connections that hardcore fans of the game will recognize and appreciate. Hades II is scheduled to release into Early Access leading up to the final release. Early Access is expected to release sometime in 2023, but official details are yet to be announced by Supergiant Games.
