It’s time to play the Game of Life and Death
Hand of Fate 2, the highly anticipated follow-up to Defiant Development’s action RPG, is now available for PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, and Linux. An Xbox One version with 4K Ultra HD support is currently in development.
Hand of Fate 2 flaunts a myriad of impressive improvements over the original game, including the introduction of companion characters, an overworld map, a more refined combat system, and a greater emphasis on narrative.
Following the events of the original Hand of Fate, the enigmatic Dealer has returned from the void on a quest for vengeance. Players will take part in the Game of Life and Death, which fuses collectible card games with gripping hack-and-slash combat across Dungeons & Dragons-style trials.
Carefully construct your own deck of item and equipment cards and fight your way through the Dealer’s challenges, each one providing new and exciting trials to overcome.
“When developing the original Hand of Fate, we set out to create a tabletop game that comes to life,” says Morgan Jaffit, Director of Defiant Development. “While that project was widely praised and an incredible success for us, we felt there was room for improvement. We’ve spent the past two years working to one-up ourselves, and the results have paid off. I’m proud to say this is the best game I’ve ever worked on and am ecstatic it’s finally ready to be shared with the world.”
