Apollo’s attacks inflict blindness upon enemies, making them more susceptible to damage. The mod also adds duo boons with Aphrodite, Artemis, Ares, Demeter. And, of course, Apollo has been made suitably hot enough to fit in with the rest of the pantheon. He certainly seems like an obvious omission, but of course only PC players will be able to use this mod. Hades is perfect for the Steam Deck though. Three more gods are expected, though they’re in the early stages of development. That’s Hera, goddess of marriage, Hestia, goddess of the hearth, and Hephaestus, god of fire.
A new hack adds certain previously unobtainable Greek gods to Hades, beginning with Apollo, the god of music. AlexKage is the creator of OlympusExtra, which is currently accessible on NexusMods (thanks to Games Radar) and seeks to add more gods, boons, voices, and more. Apollo is the first deity to be introduced, and he is the god of music, yet he is also linked with the sun, as he succeeded Helios in riding the sun’s fabled golden chariot. “Isn’t it strange that Apollo was left behind? We do, after all! Many Hades players have requested Apollo’s inclusion in the game, and now he has arrived “reads the page of the mod “I hope you find his boons as enjoyable as Zagreus does.”
