Roguelike/hack-and-slash/RPG/card-game combination Hand of Fate is getting decked out with a bunch of free updates as I write this.
Throughout December, three updates have already been released, with one more to go by the end of the month. Winter’s Hunt has players hunt a White Minotaur; White Council has you investigating some over-reaching mages; Hall of the Goblin King has you trying to pinch a royal goblin’s crown, and the final one – Underworld – will have you venturing into… well, into the underworld. And, thanks to the joys of free content, if you bought the game then you’ve got ’em now.
You can find out more about these free updates or pick up the game for yourself over on the Steam page, although if you’ve held off this long, you can probably wait for a sale rather than dish out £18.99. Not that it’s a bad game or anything – quite the opposite, in fact; I rather enjoyed it, despite some repetition – but I imagine there’ll be another sale coming along before long, and you’ll feel a bit of a prat if you drop nearly £20 on it now and it’s half that price in a couple of weeks.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
