Hi-Rez Studios, the creators of SMITE, a 3rd-person MOBA that featured battles between Gods of all kinds, comes SMITE Tactics, a turn-based strategy game set in the same universe.
“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.”
SMITE Tactics will be quite different from the MOBA style of game that you have previously experienced, with gameplay that has you using collectible cards to deploy minions, build armies and compete against other players and the AI in a more strategical style of game. Built on Unreal Engine 4 and designed from the ground up, it aims to be a “great experience with a keyboard and mouse or a controller”.
