Hades is a new game from the makers of Pyre and Transistor, and it’s out now in early access


Here’s a total surprise: a brand-new title from Supergiant Games, the studio behind Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre, has been announced and released all at once. Hades is in keeping with the studio’s isometric action-RPG history, with a typically eye-catching and unique art style. It’s out now for $19.99 in early access — but not on Steam.

Hades is one of the most high-profile titles secured for the launch of the Epic Games Store, a new Steam competitor from Fortnite creators Epic, who are planning to woo developers with a more attractive 88/12 revenue split. The store is now live on the web and built into the same Epic app used to launch Fortnite on PC.

Update, 9:45PM ET: This story originally reported that Hades was free; that was a pricing bug with the store.
