The game Hades will have cross-save functionality. The game came out for PC and Nintendo Switch in September, but didn’t have that feature at the time. Developer Supergiant Games has now added support for this through an update.
Supergiant Games has announced on Twitter that the feature has now been added to the Nintendo Switch. In addition, the developer makes it clear that it is a function where savegames can be sent to and from the Switch. Users only need to choose the ‘cross-saves’ feature from the game’s main menu on the Switch and be connected to a Steam or Epic Games account. By pausing and quitting the game, the progression data will be uploaded automatically.
If the game is played via Steam, the progression will be automatically synchronized in the cloud. When switching the platform, the Switch takes that last saved data, so that the player can pick up where he left off. Hades should have appeared with this cross-save functionality on its official release in September, but that was postponed at the time to avoid postponing the entire game.
Hades is a relatively big success. The game entered early access on December 10, 2019 and was officially released on September 17; a few days after that release it turned out that the game was already had been purchased more than a million times. The game is also rated very highly in both player and game viewer reviews, as evidenced by the averages on the site Metacritic.
Hades is described as a rogue-like dungeon crawler that combines some aspects of other Supergiant games, such as fast-paced action and character-driven storytelling. As a player, you take on the role of the immortal Prince of the Underworld and your goal is to break free from the god of death and the underworld.
