SMITE Tactics Announced
Hi-Rez Studio have announce a brand new game today, SMITE Tactics.
Based on the world of SMITE, SMITE Tactics takes design cues from strategy tactics titles, intergrated with your favourite characters from the highly successful MOBA.
SMITE Tactics is a turn-based tactical game set in the same SMITE universe. Players choose where to deploy minions across the battlefield along with which gods will be the leaders. Each unit has their own unique abilities and players can construct armies to battle with collectible cards.
The game will feature 1v1 ranked competitive modes and various adventure modes for players to play against an AI opponent.
Powered by Unreal Engine 4 and built from the ground up, SMITE Tactics will cater for both keyboard and mouse, or controller devices. Testing is set to begin from the end of this year.
“We’ve always wanted to expand the SMITE universe,” said Scott Lussier, Lead Designer on SMITE Tactics.
“SMITE has millions of fans worldwide, and with SMITE Tactics, players will get to experience mythological warfare from a whole new perspective, overseeing battles as their favorite gods and goddesses while wielding their signature abilities.”
The trailer below discusses the origins of SMITE Tactics and how the concept came about.
