The romance system in Hades 2 goes beyond just gifting Nectar to NPCs like in the first game. While that’s still a core way to raise relationship levels, you can unlock special gifts that trigger unique interactions and scenes with romanceable characters. You can invite them to new hangout spots in the Crossroads area between runs. Here’s a complete Romance guide in Hades 2 for you.

Hot Springs, Cold Beverages, and Lazy Fishing Days

You need to complete certain tasks that add cozy new hangouts to the hub area:
