The magical card dealer returns in Hand of Fate 2, dealing out hands filled with third person action RPG combat, trap-dodging minigames, and difficult decisions to players on PS4, PC, and now, Xbox One.
Like its predecessor, Hand of Fate, Hand of Fate 2 will have players overcoming trials created by a magical dealer as he doles out cards to the player in a meta-boardgame. These hands can send players into combat, minigames, or decision-making sequences, and this time around, are designed to train the game’s new heroine so she can defeat the protagonist of the last game.
Hand of Fate 2 introduces companions who will provide support in combat and new directions in the game’s decision-making segments. Players no longer win when reaching a specific card in the dealer’s hand in this game, instead having to accomplish set goals to finish a game.
Hand of Fate 2 has also added dual-wielding and two-handed weapons, adding more options for combat. These will come in handy against the game’s new enemy types, each connected by card suits.
Hand of Fate 2 is set to release on all platforms in Q1 2017.
