Now Playing: Hades II - Official Early Access Release Gameplay Showcase Trailer

While Supergiant Games does not have a specific end date planned for early access at this time, the developer intends to release a major update every few months containing new features and content, the first of which is aimed for launch later this year.

"Hades II in early access already has more environments, foes, and fully-voiced characters than the full version of the original Hades game," Supergiant said on the Steam page. "But it isn't complete, and key areas, characters, foes, narrative events, and systems are still to come."

Hades II has been in active development for three years already, and players might reach certain points in the game where it becomes clear that they've reached the end of the current content. Various icons, user interfaces, and character art are still work-in-progress as well.

In GameSpot's Hades II technical test preview, we said, "Supergiant Games' Hades 2 technical test offers a fascinating glimpse at how the sequel is building on the success of the first game."
