Hades will be releasing on Xbox and PlayStation consoles this August, will be part of Game Pass

Supergiant Games’ Hades will be released on Xbox consoles on August 13th, with the news coming from the Xbox Bethesda E3 2021 showcase. What is more is that Hades will be available on Xbox Game Pass when it arrives on the consoles. Supergiant has also confirmed that Hades will be arriving on PlayStation consoles on August 13th too.


In Hades, players take on the role of the Immortal Prince of the Underworld and hack through the roguelite to escape the underworld and the clutches of the titular god. Helping the Prince along the way are Olympus heavyweights Zeus, Athena, Poseidon, and some of the othe gods too. Hades took the gaming world by storm racking up a lot of awards and even beat The Last of Us Part 2 to win Best Game Award at the 2021 BAFTAs. Hades is currently available on PC and Switch with cross save enabled between the platforms. Back in September, Jim speculated on whether Supergiant Games’ god tier roguelite would appear on PlayStation and Xbox consoles. It seems that speculation is at least half right for now.

In our review for Hades, Jason wrote:

Hades is one of the best roguelites of all-time. It’s a phenomenal achievement in story telling, gameplay, and an absolute treat for both your eyes and ears. It’s astounding, and it’s always been fairly astounding through Early Access, but this final release cements it as one of the greats. If you like roguelites, and even if you don’t, you should probably get in on this as soon as you can.
