Hades is the brand new action roguelite game from Supergiant Games, best known for releasing Transistor, Bastion, and Pyre. As you might expect, this game features a beautiful art and graphical style as well, though it is also considerably more challenging than the developer’s previous games. Here’s everything you need to know about how God Mode works in Hades.
How to Start God Mode in Hades
The exact opposite of Hell Mode, God Mode was added into the game to make things a little easier for players who might not be a fan of the roguelite genre or just want to focus on the story elements instead of the action gameplay. The good news is that you can activate God Mode right from the get-go, allowing you to have a more relaxed experience if you wish.
To do this, access the options menu and look at the bottom of the screen to find a check box marked God Mode.
All you have to do is check the box and you’re good to go. The game should become much more manageable now, and if you ever want to go back to the default difficulty setting, just uncheck the box from the settings menu.
What It Does
God Mode doesn’t take effect instantly. Instead, you build up a resistance meter with each death, which means that if you’re dying constantly, Zagreus will slowly get stronger and more resistant to attacks. This will make subsequent runs easier, and allow you to reach the end quicker as well.
Another piece of good news is that using this mode doesn’t lock you out of any crucial content in the game, including rewards, keepsakes, and prophecies, so you don’t have to worry about missing out on anything cool.
