Hades’ Star Gameplay
Hades’ Star introduces the futuristic setting, where scouts search the galaxy for valuable resources and finally discover a massive star system, which is full of minerals and rare materials. They also were met by hostile environments, unstable stars and a race of mysterious creatures. Still, the scouts continued the exploration, and thousands of spaceships started to arrive in the system to build outposts and collect everything they can find.
The players start as an owner of a little fleet that explores the galaxy; they can colonize planets, build space stations and establish their presence in the dangerous environment. The player experience in Hades’ Star begins on the outskirts of the galaxy with a few planets nearby. First of all, the game teaches you to colonize the world and mine asteroids to establish space stations. You have to learn the basics and earn enough in-game currency to purchase the first essential upgrades to be able to expand further into space. The players can establish trade routes between their planets and use mining machines to acquire additional rare materials and hydrogen. All of these tasks represent the basic gameplay, and it is required to master them before expanding further and encountering other players.
At some point of Hades’ Star, the players can go and explore the universe in any direction, and that allows them to find specific stars that unlock unique missions and Player-versus-Player activities. Red Stars feature timed tasks, where you have to send battleships to clear out planets and transport all the valuables found to your storage before the Star explodes and removes everything from the system. White Stars allow the players to form corporations and participate in massive-scale battles against other corporations that may last for a few days. That way, the players can obtain unique relics that can be used to improve various technologies at their bases. Blue Stars offer free-for-all battles where the players can only control a single battleship to fight others in a small area. Such matches only last for a few minutes and can be repeated multiple times.
Hades’ Star allows the players to keep progressing while they are offline, and all of the researching and resource obtaining processes happen at all times. Everything in the game requires you to spend a specific number of in-game currency to perform. That way, players have to continuously develop their bases to mine more money to expand even further. There are several currencies, which can be obtained in different ways, and that adds even more depth to the gameplay. However, the game allows you to purchase anything using real-life money, and some players may become unbeatable without similar investments.
Hades’ Star is a slow-paced game, which fits both casual and hardcore players because of the diverse gameplay that allows them to play alone or with friends. You can explore the galaxy and complete various objectives or focus on developing your space stations; all of that rewards the players with valuable items and in-game currencies, which can be spent on multiple upgrades for both spaceships and base equipment. The players can always invest money into this free-to-play project to significantly increase their power level and to skip specific phases of the game; however, it is possible to complete most of the objectives without spending money.
