Card-based Roguelike Hand of Fate Launching Today

The Kickstarter funded title Hand of Fate, coming from Defiant Development, is set to release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One today February 17, 2015. Hand of Fate is a Roguelike card based title, combining elements of board and collectible card games with third-person action sequences. At the beginning of the adventure, your deck will only contain the most basic equipment, encounter and enemy cards, but as you progress you'll gain more powerful cards, and better (and magical) equipment.

Much like various tabletop RPG games, certain cards will have game-changing choices, altering the path of players, and how the game plays out. if an enemy card is played by the devious dealer, the game switches to a third-person perspective, given you direct control of your warrior in an action combat system reminiscent of the Batman: Arkham series.
