Hades is available to play on Xbox Game Pass today. The latest offering from Supergiant Games first launched last year on the Nintendo Switch, Windows and macOS and was met with widespread critical acclaim. Besides boasting a 93 Metacritic score for the Switch and PC versions, Hades scooped up plenty of awards – including the coveted Best Game Award at the 2021 BAFTAs.

Hades is available to play via Xbox Game Pass on the Xbox Series X, S, Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs today.

The description for Hades on the Microsoft website says: “Recipient of more than 50 Game of the Year awards! In this rogue-like dungeon crawler, you’ll wield the powers and mythic weapons of Olympus to break free from the clutches of the god of the dead himself, while growing stronger and unraveling more of the story with each unique escape attempt.”

The release of Hades for Xbox Game Pass tops what’s been an incredible week for the Microsoft service.

It all kicked off on Tuesday when a tonne of Codemasters games were added to Xbox Game Pass.
