Hand of Fate, the Kickstarter-funded title from Defiant Development that seamlessly blends RPG, rogue-like and action-adventure elements with board and collectible card game features, will launch on Xbox One in January 2015 in addition to the previously announced PC and PlayStation 4 releases.

Gamers who download Hand of Fate on Steam Early Access will be able to play new content created by industry luminary David Goldfarb, of Battlefield and Payday fame, prior to the game’s official launch. Goldfarb has designed original encounters, locations, items and a story which flesh out a hidden optional quest in Hand of Fate.

David Goldfarb’s side mission begins when players discover the corpse of a hunter – missing its shadow. As the level progresses, more bodies without shadows pile up. Players make their way to the Gorge of Beasts, where the bones of a great creature envelope the surrounding land in darkness. From the gloom emerges a mythical monstrosity terrorizing the land, a creature that must be defeated.

“The feedback we have received from gamers playing on Steam Early Access has surpassed our wildest dreams,” said Morgan Jaffit, director, Defiant Development. “We are working furiously to deliver the finished game for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC owners.”

The Early Access build of Hand of Fate is now available for PC, Mac and Linux on Steam at a discounted price of $25 USD.
