Epic Game Store's First Exclusive Hades Launches On Steam This Winter

Supergiant Games anticipates launching the full game in the "second half of 2020."


Hades will finally make its way to Steam a year after launching exclusively on the Epic Games Store. In fact, Supergiant Games' roguelike dungeon-crawler arrives on Steam on December 10.

Supergiant announced on Twitter that Hades will see an Early Access Steam launch this winter. The news was bottled in a Twitter thread by the company, which also announced this year marks the studio's 10 year anniversary.

Now Playing: Hades Combat And Story Early Access Gameplay

On Hades' Steam store page, Supergiant says it expects to pull the game out of Early Access and release it as a full title in the "second half of 2020." The full version of Hades is said to feature "the complete ending to the story," as well as additional story content and added polish across its entirety. Those who purchased Hades on or before October 15 will receive a free digital copy of the game's original soundtrack as a thank you for supporting Supergiant, though it won't be available until the game's v1.0 launch next year.

Elsewhere in the Twitter thread, Supergiant revealed a variety of games from its catalog--including Bastion and Transistor--are up to 80 percent off for the company's 10 year celebration. Both games are incredibly cheap on the Nintendo Eshop right now as well, with Bastion selling for $3 USD and Transistor going for $4 USD.
