Hi-Rez Studios announced today with a press release the beginning of the closed beta of its turn-based strategy game Hand of The Gods: SMITE Tactics on PS4 and Xbox One consoles.

While it’s technically a “closed” beta, it isn’t all that hard to enter if you’re interested. In order to grab the game and download it, all you need is a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold account, which will also grant a free promotional bundle.

The bundle includes a few goodies to help you get started: a unique Leader Skin, an Exclusive Card Back, and Player Icon, on top of five Core Packs to let you build your starter deck.

The game allows players to build their army from a roster of gods and mythological creatures, and then take part in competitive multiplayer or single player adventures. Before landing on consoles it launched for PC in early access on Steam last month.

Below you can enjoy a new trailer for the console closed beta, and if you want a bit more help in building up your deck, you should check out our giveaway that will grant you a code for a free card featuring the legendary Norse god Loki.
