Take on the god of time in Hades II
The protagonist in Hades II will be Melinoë, the immortal Princess of the Underworld who is an immortal witch and sorceress with powerful magical abilities. Similar to the original game, she’ll have support from different Olympian gods in her quest to defeat Chronos, the Titan of Time. “Chronos, the Titan of Time and the wicked father of Hades and his brothers, has escaped his imprisonment in the depths of the Underworld to wage war on Olympus.”
Supergiant says players don’t need to know anything about the original game or Greek mythology to enjoy this sequel.
The game will be a single-player title and it is most likely to be available on PC (Steam and Epic Games Store) as well as consoles. The release date and platforms of release will be revealed later.
