Hand of Fate 2: Face of War free update out now!



Mercenaries and coinslaves seeking to freshen up their war-face can expect some bold additions to the character customizer with the Face of War Update! Six barbaric new hairstyles are available out of the gate, with a further 10 new facepaint options unlocked from the new utility encounter, the Goblin Tracker.

Warpaint is a brand new facial customization option inspired by the fashion stylings of the goblin faction. Take to battle with a lurid death's head motif and teach your enemies the true meaning of fear!

Announcing the winner of the HoF2 Briarfolk modding contest: Verdant Emergence



We've enjoyed the community's response to the HoF2 Briarfolk modding contest, but today we're very happy to announce that the winning entry belongs to modder Dargenom, with his creation, Verdant Emergence. Dargenom went the whole hog, constructing a complete challenge full of unique encounters, new characters and a fun take on the established Briarfolk lore that surprised more than a few people in the office. Building on the base-defence structure of the campaign's Justice challenge, Dargenom took the concept and made it his own with a number of fun tweaks and innovations.

For his dazzling work, Dargenom will receive a limited collector's edition of the upcoming Hand of Fate boardgame, Hand of Fate: Ordeals, signed by the team at Defiant. Congratulations, Dargenom, and congratulations to everyone in the community who rose to meet the Briarfolk's challenge!

To play Verdant Emergence, simply subscribe to the mod on the Workshop page below, and access it from the mods section of the HoF2 title screen.

“A bigger, better game than its predecessor in almost every respect, and one with a sense of journey and surprise to its gambling, fighting and dying, which makes it feel rather like a card-based, fantasy FTL”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Hand of Fate 2 improves upon nearly every aspect of the original, providing diverse new challenges that help build the world around the Game of Life and Death”
8.5 – GameWatcher

“The result is a captivating Dungeons & Dragons-style adventure grander and more fulfilling than its predecessor, one that is clear proof that Australia is capable of making games just as well as anywhere in the world.”

About This Game

Hand of Fate 2 is a dungeon crawler set in a world of dark fantasy. Master a living boardgame where every stage of the adventure is drawn from a deck of legendary encounters chosen by you! Choose wisely - your opponent, the enigmatic Dealer, will pull no punches as he shapes you into the instrument of his revenge.

The table has changed, but the stakes remain the same: life or death!

KEY GAME FEATURES

  • Enlist the aid of all new companion characters - team up with them in battle, or have them bend the rules of the boardgame in your favor!
  • Hundreds of new encounters, artifacts and items to earn and upgrade.
  • Enhanced action-RPG combat - shred foes with quick dual-wielded daggers or brutalize them with heavy two-handed hammers. Build up your combo meter to unleash powerful special attacks!
