Although the idea is Hades will be a free-to-play game from Netflix but of course you cannot access that without a subscription. This might raise eyebrows for some payers specifically those gamers who prefers one-time purchase model. You can pre-order the game right now on App Store but of course without the subscription there is no use. As Supergiant said:

“On top of that, your standard subscription also includes a variety of excellent games you can download and play right now on compatible devices, at no additional charge! We were drawn to the opportunity to introduce Netflix’s audience to our game, and look forward to hearing from our players there.”

  • Firstly, you need to download the Netflix App and Hades from App Store
  • On Netflix scroll down to the “Mobile Games” section
  • Then tap the game and then click “Play Game”
