Hand of Fate 2 leads on Xbox One X running at native 4K

Just like the first game, the main antagonist, the Dealer, sits at the table, and the Game of Life and Death begins once more. However, this time around the stakes are higher. Instead of simply trying to survive, the fate of empires hangs in the balance. According to the developers, Hand of Fate 2 brings a host of new mechanics to the table. For example, companions will fight at your side and a swathe of new opponents will fight against you.

With the launch of the Xbox One X on November 7, 2017, many of you might be wondering if the game will support the console. The answer is yes, it definitely will. Apart from that, the Xbox One X version is the only console which supports native 4K. This information was revealed in an interview between WCCFtech and the game's communications manager Lee May. When asked about Hand of Fate 2's resolution on Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro, May said the following.

We've got a couple of modes on the Xbox One X – native 4K and 1620p. They can be locked to solid 30 FPS or unlocked... The PS4 Pro has the same graphical enhancements over the standard consoles that the Xbox One X has. It targets 1620p when connected to a 4K screen, or 1080p on a lower-resolution monitor.

This means that Hand of Fate 2 runs at native 4K only on the Xbox One X if you decide to play it on a 4K screen. If you try to do that on the PlayStation 4 Pro, the maximum resolution it will output is 1620p. The image from the Xbox One X will be noticeably clearer because it's not upscaling to a 4K display.

Just like the Xbox One X, Hand of Fate 2 launches on November 7, 2017. If you like card games and games which focus on third-person combat, be sure to give the title a go. If you haven't played the first game, be sure to check it out as well on the Xbox Store. It's surprisingly addictive.
