Hades was a massive success and won Best Indie Game and Action Game at the Game Awards. Supermassive games developed and published this game for PC and Switch on September 17th, 2020. Today during Microsoft and Bethesda’s E3 Showcase this critically acclaimed title will now be available on Game Pass and available on PlayStation as well this coming August 13th. For PC players out there that use Game Pass, you will also have access to Hades.
For those who have not played Hades, the story Follows Hade’s son Zagreus whom is trying to escape the Underworld to leave his uncaring father and join Zeus at Olympus. Other Gods such as Poseidon and Athena grant him boons along the way to aid his escape out of the massive areas in the Underworld like Tartarus, Asphodel, and Elysium. Not only the Gods are aiding Zagreus in his journey, but a lot of the local residents of the Underworld are aiding the young God as well like Eurydice and Charon who sells him various goods and grants safe passage. The gameplay is insanely fun as a newer dungeon crawler due to the various boons that grant additional abilities to Zagreus’s moves and various weapons.
For those buying it on the PS4 and PS5, the game will feature a free PS5 upgrade for PS5 users. The games performance will feature 1080P at 60 frames per second on the Playstation 4, while performing at 4k and 60 frames per second on the PS5. PS5 users will also experience extra features via the controller such as haptic feedback and adaptive triggers according to the creative director of Supermassive Games Greg Kasavin on the PlayStation blog. Xbox users will get to play the game for free if they have Game Pass. The performances will be the same, Xbox One users will play the game at 1080p and 60 frames per second, while the Series X and Series S players will experience the game in 4k at 60 frames. The only downside for these platforms will be that unlike the Nintendo Switch, they will not support Cross Save from PC to Console.
