Hand of Fate 2 for PC, PS4 and XONE is an RPG enriched with board and card game elements. The project was developed by Defiant Development – the team responsible for the first Hand of Fate.


Similarly to the first installment, Hand of Fate 2 pits the player against the challenges created using cards rolled by a magical enemy, known as The Dealer. He was defeated at the end of the previous game, but the victorious protagonist was corrupted by his own power, and spent the next century as a bloodthirsty tyrant. The Dealer returns, chooses a female student (the new protagonist) and teaches her, so that she can overthrow the spoilt ruler.


When it comes to the gameplay mechanics, Hand of Fate 2 for PC, PS4 and XONE stays true to the solutions presented in the first installment. As before, we traverse the world, moving the checker representing our hero, and discovering further cards, which can symbolize enemies, neutral characters, various locations and other elements constituting a fully-fledged adventure. If we encounter an enemy, the game takes us to a three-dimensional environment known from classic action RPGs, where we have to personally face monsters and traps, and sovle minigames.

However, a number of new elements have been added which hadn’t been present in the original. A new layer of gameplay has been added to the game map, introducing more situations with potential encounters. Additionally, our hero doesn’t have to walk alone anymore – we can now recruit comrades and create a party.

To finish the original Hand of Fate, the player only had to reach the end of The Dealer’s deck. The sequel contains new victory requirements, such as e.g. getting the required amount of gold. A bigger diversity of objectives is also seen during action sequences. Previously, all you had to do was to defeat all enemies, but now, we receive extra objectives, for example – keeping a goblin alive for 60 seconds by repelling infinite waves of enemies.
