Hades is an enchanting roguelite that will draw you in with its narrative and dozens of gameplay layers. It’s one of the most welcoming in the genre, but that doesn’t mean that escaping from the underworld will be an easy task.
This How-To page will teach you how to make Hades easier by using God Mode, the benefits this brings, and the way it evolves over time as you plunge your way through hell.
How to Make Hades Easier
As with any other roguelites, death isn’t exactly final. You will quickly go back to the hub and be given time to prepare yourself and get out into the fray once more. The progression elements in Hades will assure you better chances of survival in new runs, whether that be upgrades in the Mirror of Fates or enhancing your Infernal Arms.
Over time, as you start learning enemy patterns and the best way to defeat bosses, it will be more likely to get to the end, and beyond. It’s a game that always keeps evolving, and it will be more challenging regardless of how many upgrades you have under your robe.
That being said, if you’re having trouble progressing through the game, or just want to become more powerful without any real penalties, we strongly recommend using God Mode.
How to Use God Mode
God Mode is available at any time on the settings menu, either from the main menu or just by pausing in-game. You can toggle and untoggle this at any time, too, even during fights.
This will immediately grant Zagreus with 20% damage resistance from all enemies. What’s even better, every time he perishes in battle, he will obtain 2% more on top of the current number, up to a maximum of 80%. This is accumulative, too, so even if you get to a percentage and then turn it off, turning it on again will resume with the bonus you had earned thus far.
In Hades, God Mode can be extremely useful, and everything else around the story and gameplay will remain the same, so don’t be afraid to experiment with this option if you’re having trouble or just want a small pick me up during a tough battle.
