Battle out of Hell

As the immortal Prince of the Underworld, you'll wield the powers and mystic weapons of Olympus to break free from the clutches of the god of the dead himself, while growing stronger and unravelling more of the story with each unique escape attempt.

Unleash the Fury of Olympus

The Olympians have your back! Meet Zeus, Athena, Poseidon, and many more, and choose from dozens of powerful Boons that enhance your abilities.  There are thousands of viable character build to discover as you go. 

Built for Replayability

New surprises await each time you delve into the ever-shifting Underworld, whose guardian bosses will remember you.  Use the powerful Mirror of Night to grow permanently stronger, and give yourself a leg up the next time you run away from home.

Nothing is impossible

Permanent upgrades mean you don't have to be a god yourself to experience the exciting combat and gripping story.  Though, if you happen to be one, crank up the challenge and get ready for some white knuckle action that will put your well-practiced skills to the test
