SMITE Tactics becomes Hand of the Gods


SMITE Tactics has become Hand of the Gods: SMITE Tactics, Hi-Rez Studios today announced.

SMITE Tactics was always meant to be a working title for the new strategy game set in the SMITE universe, and this name change is one of many steps being taken to bring the game closer to a finished product with its own identity,” Hi-Rez said in a press release.

“The past 4 months of closed beta have seen lots of content and overall polish added to Hand of the Gods. The Roman and Chinese pantheons were added, each bringing their own strengths and weaknesses to the game. The core gameplay has evolved with player controlled summoning stones, which now serve as the final objective of each match. These major updates, coupled with dozens of brand new minion, god, and item cards add more variety and strategic play styles to each battle for players to experiment with.”

Hand of the Gods is currently in a closed beta.
