The Chaos Update is Now Available!

By Greg Kasavin January 15th, 2019

We’re very excited to announce that The Chaos Update is now available for Hades! If you own the game on the Epic Games store, you’ll get it as a free, automatic download. This is the first of our planned monthly updates during Early Access, and it’s packed with new features and improvements:

Key Features

- Meet Primordial Chaos, distant ancestor of the gods! Blessings from Chaos offer powerful benefits… along with unexpected side effects. So choose wisely!

 - Unlock the Infernal Contract for the ultimate challenge! For those skilled and determined enough to have cleared the game, now even greater trials await.

 - New & Improved Look for the player character: We’ve retouched thousands of frames of animation to bring our protagonist in line with the game’s distinctive look!

 - Trade with the Wretched Broker and exchange surplus resources for what you need! Seek him in the Lounge in the House of Hades.

 - New Foes & Encounters to confront! Look for three new foes (such as the deadly Skull-Crusher) along with six additional chambers to fight through.

Plus, look for new balance changes, fully-voiced narrative events, upgradeable Keepsakes, music, bug fixes, and more! Full patch notes are available in the game client and our official Discord.

We hope you find The Chaos Update makes Hades an even more thrilling experience. Many of the features in this update were inspired and influenced by feedback from you, the players, and we invite you to send us impressions of this latest version of the game on our Discord.

The Chaos Update expresses our Early Access philosophy by expanding on the game and story in unison. We’d like to thank all our players and early adopters for making our Early Access a success thus far, and we're looking forward to seeing your latest attempts to battle out of hell!
