Great Hall

When you first die, you'll emerge at one end of the Great Hall, through the blood-red Pool of Styx. Hypnos is watching the emerging spirits as they wait for trial by Hades, who is at the other end of the hall. Cerberus sits to his right.

Two more characters will also be here, but we'll get to that in another section.

Pet Cerberus ten times to unlock:

The House Contractor will also be near Hades. The House Contractor is very important to your progression as he allows you to unlock new rooms, both in the House of Hades and the Underworld. Once you've made fifty purchases from him, you'll unlock:

West Wing

Achilles and Thanatos can be found here. This wing also connects to the Administrative Chambers and Hades' Bedroom.

After at least three escape attempts and some dialogue, Achilles will give Zagreus the Codex - which contains information about everything in Hades.

East Wing

Nyx can be found here. Megaera can be found here before opening the Lounge. This wing also connects to Zagreus' bedchambers.

Lounge

After a few runs, the Lounge will be unlocked. Megaera can be found here. The Chef and Wretched Broker can also be found here. The Chef simply takes any fish you've caught in exchange for resources. The Wretched Broker can exchange various resources for another type as follows:

ItemPrice
Chthonic Key10 Gemstones
Nectar5 Chthonic Key
Diamond10 Nectar
Ambrosia2 Diamonds
Titan BloodAmbrosia

He will also have a limited time offer that changes every run. After twenty trades, you will unlock:

Garden

The Garden is unlocked after completing the story. Some characters will rarely appear here (Zagreus will make a comment about checking the garden when near his bedchambers, when this does happen). You also get a statue after completing the epilogue that will appear at one end of the garden.

Other Rooms

Administrative Chambers

To gain access to the Administrative Chambers, you'll need to complete at least 27 runs and seen the Administrative Chambers flashback (which seems to happen randomly). After this, Administrative Privilege will be sold by the House Contractor for two diamonds. Buying it will unlock:

  • Back to Work

    Earn access to and enter the Administrative Chamber

    Offline Mode - These trophies require play in game modes that do not require a connection to any live services, such as Play Station Network.Single Player - These trophies can be obtained by a single player.

You can view records of your past run in the Administrative Chambers and a few small events happen here.

Hades' Bedroom

You'll first unlock access after completing eight runs and talking to Achilles. You'll gain full access after completing ten runs. Besides story events, this room contains a spirit that will visually upgrade the health portion of your HUD. This is simply a resource sink for endgame players, so don't worry about it.

Zagreus' Bedchambers

Zagreus' Bedchambers contains a few important stations. The first one is The Mirror of Night. The mirror will allow you to upgrade Zagreus in between runs. Once unlocked, you'll only have access to three talent. Unlocking more talents will require Chthonic Keys. You can also upgrade each talent with Darkness that you've collected in each run.

After collecting at least 300 Darkness and talking to Nyx, you'll unlock green talents. Each talent has a red and green side that have similar buffs, but only one can be active at a time. You will eventually be able to refund all the Darkness you've invested into the mirror for one Chthonic Key. You can use the refunded Darkness to invest a rank in each talent to unlock:

  • Nyx's Mirror

    Have at least one rank in each Mirror of Night Talent

The second one is The Fated List of Minor Prophecies. This is bought from the House Contractor for 20 Gemstones after buying Fountain Chamber, Tartarus. This list contains 55 challenges, but they will only show up after a certain trigger, or once you are close to unlocking them. There are many trophies tied to completing certain prophecies, including one for completing any fifteen prophecies:

There are ten trophies for completing certain prophecies (that will be covered in relevant sections). The five remaining prophecies will be earned while going for other trophies, so don't worry about this one.

Courtyard

Skelly can be found here. Slaying him fifteen times will unlock:

Infernal Arms

Your Infernal Arms can also be found here. Unlocking a new Infernal Arm will require Chthonic Keys. Once you've unlocked all of them, you'll unlock:
