Hand of Fate roguelike deck-building RPG heading to PS4, PS Vita

New, 3 comments

Defiant Development's Hand of Fate, an action role playing game that combines tabletop card game elements, is heading to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, associate producer Kim Allom wrote on the official PlayStation blog.

"Being a roguelike, Hand of Fate's strength is its nearly endless combination of cards and ways to play," Allom wrote. "The deck builder lets you determine a mix of combat, chance, and equipment cards for your deck before you set out on your quest. Equipment selection ramps up replayability as the player is introduced to a slew of artifacts, weapons, and armor that modify gameplay. The player has the freedom to choose their cards, but how and when they are dealt out is purely up to The Dealer."

Hand of Fate is slated to launch in the first quarter of 2014 as a full-priced game with no free-to-play component. The studio launched a successful Kickstarter campaign last November with a $50,000 goal to fund the game's beta.
