Supergiant Games' early access roguelike Hades has had its next major update, which includes a final battle at the Gateway to the Underworld.
The BIG BAD update went live yesterday, and the patch notes show there's loads of new content to keep fans busy, as well as a bunch of bug fixes, of course.

Some of the update's highlights include a brand new biome - the Temple of Styx at the very edge of the Underworld, a Final Battle that may let Zagreus escape at last, and some brand new enemy types to face on your journey.
There's also new music, new Boons, new story events and a rework on how often you can call on Olympus' help during battle.
Despite the size of the update, this isn't the last we'll see, as Supergiant expects the game to remain in Epic's early access until sometime next year, and we won't see the actual complete ending until Hades' full release.
However, perhaps the most important news out of all of this is that Zagreus can finally pet Cerberus.
