Hi-Rez Studios has announced Smite Tactics, a new strategy game that takes place in the same universe as its popular third-person MOBA: Smite.
Specifically, Smite Tactics will be a turn-based strategy game, featuring gameplay where players direct gods and minions across and open battlefield with the goal of smashing your opponent’s forces. Before battles, players will create their armies using a type of collectible cards system.
Other salient details:
- The game is being built on the Unreal 4 Engine
- It will feature “many familiar faces from the Battleground of the Gods.”
- There will be 1v1 online competitive modes, as well as several adventure offline modes, during which players will battle against the AI.
A closed beta for Smite Tactics will be available sometime later this year.
