Hand of Fate 2 Will Be Dealt out to Gamers November 7th

What do you get when you cross a collectible card game (CCG) with a board game and Batman: Arkham Asylum‘s combat?  You get the critically acclaimed Hand of Fate and its sequel, Hand of Fate 2, which, according to an announcement, will release on November 7th.

The original Hand of Fate is described as a meta boardgame where players build virtual card decks that determine everything from what kinds of enemies and obstacles they encounter (and how many) to the equipment they receive. The game focuses on risk vs. reward; players who stack their deck with relatively risk-less encounter cards will be ill-equipped for later levels, but players who know how to manage these risks and master the game’s mechanics will be ready for whatever surprises they encounter.

Hand of Fate 2 will add several new features to the Hand of Fate formula, and I don’t just mean new monsters and swords. Instead of limiting players to one-handed weapons and a shield, Hand of Fate 2 will provide more combat options with dual-wielded and two-handed weapons, as well as companions. Not only will companions aid players in battle, they will also affect the game outside of combat. Developer Defiant Development revealed the latest of these companions with the release date announcement: the Indomitable Ariadne of Stiegal. This companion is a bulky bruiser of a warrior who swings around a giant, two-handed blacksmith hammer to “[shatter] the armor of even the sturdiest of opponents.” She also can duplicate cards to make it easier for players to succeed in non-combat encounters.

Defiant Development is proud of Hand of Fate 2 and claims the game is “the best game Defiant Development has ever produced.” The studio included so many improvements and features that Hand of Fate 2 is four times as big as the original Hand of Fate. I look forward to the game’s release on November 7th for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

All you have to do to get my attention is talk about video games, technology, anime, and/or Dungeons & Dragons - also people in spandex fighting rubber suited monsters.

The latest trailer for Sony Pictures Entertainment’s CGI film Resident Evil: Death Island, released July 25, features the outlandish action and melodrama that made the franchise a cult sensation.

This Resident Evil Avengers-esque team-up features Leon S. Kennedy, Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield, Claire Redfield, and Rebecca Chambers.

The T-Virus and killer whales take the gang to Alcatraz in San Francisco Bay, where a new nightmare awaits. In magnificent slow motion and with progressively heavier ordinance, the Dream Team will supposedly destroy zombies, Lickers, mutant orcas, and anything else foolish or nasty enough to stand in their path.

Diablo 4’s post-launch support will keep you playing for years, according to Blizzard. General manager Rod Fergusson confirmed two expansions and free content updates.

“As I sit here, we’re about to launch the main game; we’re finishing up season one; we’re working on season two; we’re working on expansion one; we’re kicking off expansion two,” he told PC Gamer on the Kinda Funny Xcast. These two DLCs may release sooner than expected. Fergusson says the live service model lets Blizzard release content faster than Diablo III.

With tens of hours of content in the base game, Diablo 4 is massive. This could be Destiny 2 or Genshin Impact, with seasons and DLC. That thought excites or frightens you. Leave a comment and check out our Diablo 4 guide for help with the PS5 and PS4 games.
