The concept of early access holds significant importance for the development team, as it played a vital role in the success of the original Hades.

With the experience gained from the first game’s early access development, the team approached Hades 2 with a better understanding of what a Hades game should be.

In addition, the team plans to conduct a technical test in the second quarter of 2024, just before the early access release. This test will involve a limited number of players and will primarily focus on identifying and addressing any technical or compatibility issues. By conducting this test, the team aims to provide a smooth playing experience for those who try Hades 2 in early access.

Moreover, the dev team plans to follow a similar approach to the original Hades for Hades 2’s early access. They will release several major updates after the early access launch, adding core content and refining the game based on player feedback. Each update will expand the story, introduce new characters, and deepen existing relationships.
