Brisbane, Australia-based Defiant Development has today confirmed a sequel to 2015’s Hand of Fate is officially on the cards, so to speak. Hand of Fate 2 will launch on Windows, Mac, and Linux early next year.
Part card-based board game, part third-person combat, Hand of Fate 2 will unfold just like the original, demanding players overcome trials triggered by collectible cards handed out by the dealer. The sequel, however, will add new challenging and powerful cards, new enemy types, new equipment (including two-handed and dual-wielded weapons), and new companions who will fight alongside players.
“Hand of Fate demanded players prepare themselves for any possible outcome with each overturned card,” said Defiant Development director Morgan Jaffit. “With the new mechanics we’ve added into Hand of Fate 2, even players who mastered the first game will once again be challenged by the luck of the draw.”
