Hand of Fate 2 is a bit of a strange game to explain. Its essentially a hybrid between a roguelike, an action-RPG, and a deck-building card game. How it works is that each overturned card reveals some sort of challenge, be that an action-orientated combat section, a high-risk high-reward minigame, or just some old fashioned RPG decision making. The most interesting part of this whole system is that the various elements are interactive, so if you have a couple of combat-orientated cards such as weapons or power ups, those will manifest themselves in the actual battle!

Trying to explain all of this through words alone is a bit of a fruitless venture, so allow me to instead share with you the recently posted trailer. Its not a very long video, but it should give you a general idea of just what Hand of Fate 2 is all about. Have a look:

As far as improvements over its predecessor are concerned, Hand of Fate 2 will bring with it a bunch of new mechanics, as well a variety of tweaks for just about every aspect of gameplay. You can expect to see greatly improved controls in the combat sections, companions that actually fight alongside you, a ton of new challenges to test your skills against, and naturally, a horde of new opponents to beat down. In other words, its still the same concept, just executed in a what I hope is going to be a much better way.

If all of this sounds like something you would love to try out, you'll be glad to hear that Hand of Fate 2 will be coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 this November 7th. To learn more, or just check out some of the other gameplay previews, you should head over to the official website or Steam. And finally, let me send you off with a couple of images:
