How to sign up for the Hades 2 technical test

Everything you need to do to sign up for the Hades 2 technical test and get a chance to play the highly anticipated roguelike sequel early.

Hades 2 technical test: a witch wielding a staff in the underworld.

How do you sign up for the Hades 2 technical test? Supergiant Games, the developers of the Hades series, has decided to launch a technical test via Steam to squash as many bugs as possible. It should be noted that a technical test is different from Steam Early Access. Not everyone will gain access to the Hades 2 technical test, but they will be able to play the game once it launches for everyone on Steam.

Thankfully, the method for getting into the Hades 2 technical test uses Steam’s playtest functionality. With that in mind, we’ll go over where to sign up for the roguelike game‘s technical test, how long it will roughly last, and what players can expect when trying it out ahead of the Hades 2 release date.

How to get into the Hades 2 technical test

You can register your interest in the Hades 2 technical test by heading over to the Steam Page and clicking the “Request Access” button to join. Supergiant Games will notify you if you are one of the lucky ones who were chosen to test the game ahead of the early access release.

According to the accompanying Hades 2 Steam Page blog post, the Hades 2 technical test will last “longer than a week, shorter than a month”. While Supergiant Games is uncertain how long it will run, it did state that the Hades 2 early access launch date depends on when the technical test ends.

As for what the Hades 2 technical test will contain, the blog post states that it will feature “the first major area of the game, and other early-game characters, systems, and content”. You will only be able to beat the first boss five times in total, but Supergiant Games did say that’s because the early access version “shouldn’t be far behind!” Sadly, progress from the technical test won’t carry over to the early access version due to “structural differences”.

That’s everything we know about the Hades 2 technical test, and we wish you the best of luck in getting in to try one of the most anticipated games in recent years. If you’re not one of the lucky ones, don’t despair. You can always check out the best fantasy games list, as there’s at least one good one there based on ancient mythology.
