Aussie-made Hand of Fate 2 comes to Xbox One this week

Matt Sayer 29 November 2017 NEWS


Xbox owners can finally get their hands on one of the best Australian-made games we've seen in a long time.

After hacking and slashing its way onto PC and PS4 earlier this month, the excellent action RPG Hand of Fate 2 will finally lay its cards down on Xbox One on Saturday 2 December.

The follow-up to the surprise hit of 2015, Hand of Fate 2 combines deck-building with a Dungeons & Dragons-style setup where the enigmatic Dealer guides you through a wealth of endlessly incentive scenarios that go beyond what you'd think is possible within its card game framework. We adored the game in our review, congratulating Brisbane-based studio Defiant Development on delivering "clear proof that Australia is capable of making games just as well as anywhere in the world."

What we thought...

While it's a bummer Xbox One players have had to wait a little longer to get their hands on the game, the delay comes with the tantalising news for owners of Microsoft's souped-up Xbox One X: Hand of Fate 2 that it will support full 4K Ultra HD resolution for crisper, more detailed visuals.
