Since its release a month ago, Supergiant Games’ latest game, Hades, has been making waves in the gaming community. An interesting twist on roguelike games, which are games where each run is generated at random and the player’s death is permanent, can be found in the game’s plot.
It’s not an easy task, however, as the game has four difficult stages and a slew of punishing bosses. Whatever your current situation, here’s what happens in the endgame of Hades.
The Final Boss Is Hades Himself
Even though it’s obvious from the game’s title, you’ll finally meet your father when you exit Styx, the final stage of the Underworld, in the game. Hades is fed up with Zagreus’ escape attempts, so he goes to put an end to it once and for all in the story.
‘ In an attempt to calm Hades down, Zagreus tells him he only wants to see his real mother, but Hades is unmoved, and the two engage in combat.
Because of his unpredictable attack patterns and the devastating amounts of damage he can deal with a single blow, Hades is by far the most difficult boss to face. Be prepared to die many times.
Before making a second escape attempt, you’ll return to the House of Hades (where you’ll notice that your father is absent from his usual position behind his massive desk). You’ll be able to continue to Greece if you’re successful.
The Journey to Greece and the First “Ending”
Your mother Persephone lives in a lush green area of Greece after you defeat your father in a long walk through the mountains there. Before Zagreus gets sick, you get to spend some time with her, catching up and reuniting.
There may be no way out of the Underworld for you according to Persephone, who says that you’re tied to it like Hades. You die and return to the House of Hades, but not before making a promise to your mother that you’ll see her again one day.
In this first “ending,” you are given the “Pact of Punishment,” which allows you to adjust the game’s difficulty to increase bounties, but you can continue your escape attempts.
If you want to see the true conclusion of the game, then you must defeat Hades eight more times, each time visiting your mother to learn more about her flight from the Underworld and the reasons for her disappearance.
Each opportunity, like the first, comes to an end when you give in to the Underworld’s pull and find yourself right back where you started.
Hades will no longer be an obstacle when you return to the surface for the tenth time. To make one final visit to your mother, you will be able to travel freely and she will agree to accompany you to the Underworld. A ride back to Hades from the riverbank is provided by Charon, the boatman who runs the store throughout the game.
Even though Hades is a difficult game, the fantastic story bits that pop up as you progress make it all worthwhile. Even if you know how it all ends, it’s worth experiencing for yourself.
Conclusion: Beyond a Game
The Hugo Award for best video game goes to Hades, the first-ever. It’s deserved. Extends beyond the game’s confines in terms of narrative The world it creates and the space it gives the player are both metaphors for perseverance.
Intricate and multifaceted characters are introduced. As in the real world, there is no such thing as black or white in Hades.
A game like Hades pushes the boundaries of its medium. No other roguelike game has had the same impact on me as this one has. Failing taught me a lot. There is always something to learn, someone to meet, or a way to grow in every failure.
