Bastion and Transistor developer Supergiant announces Hades, and it’s available now

One of the big selling points of the Epic Games Store is the smaller cut that Epic takes before a user's money gets to the game's developer. Hades, the next title by Supergiant Games (Bastion, Transistor, Pyre), a rogue-like dungeon crawler, is now only available in early access form via the Epic Games Store, priced $19.99.

Epic Games launched the company's game store today; interested gamers can head over to the official Store front on the Epic Games website to browse what it has to offer and download the client to the local system.

Epic is giving all developers on the Epic Games Store an 88 percent share of the revenue.

"As a developer ourselves, we have always wanted a platform with great economics that connects us directly with our players", said Epic Games founder and CEO, Tim Sweeney in a prepared statement. If you'd prefer to wait until the game is 100% complete, we expect Hades will eventually be available on a variety of platforms, once Early Access is complete.

Darksiders III, a game with no shortages of flaws, will get added on December 14, along with Subnautica followed by Super Meat Boy at the end of the month.

Earlier this week, Epic Games announced their own store, appropriately titled the Epic Games Store, and while they won't say it, they're out for Steam's lunch. Game pages lack information about recent updates, supported game modes, or hardware other than minimum and recommended PC requirements. "More importantly, we think what we can build while taking your feedback into account will be much better than if we were to work in relative secrecy until it was done".

The Pathless, the next game by the makers of Abzû, will be a PC exclusive on the Epic Games Store (it was also announced for the PlayStation 4).
