Hand of the Gods: Smite Tactics official artwork without logo

Hand of the Gods: Smite Tactics, formerly known as just Smite Tactics, is a 1v1 strategy game with a variety of card game elements thrown in for good measure. After being in Closed Beta for quite a while now it would appear that Hand of the Gods is now finally ready for a public release.

If you're wondering what exactly the Open Beta version looks like, and whether Hi-Rez is even serious about supporting it in the future, you'll find the answer you seek in the recently posted trailer. Have a look:

As with most other CCGs these days Hand of the Gods is built from the ground up with esports in mind. In order to kickstart the whole competitive scene, and also provide some incentive for high-level play, Hi-Rez has announced a $50k tournament that will take place at the Hi-Rez Expo next year. There will also be an open qualifier for the tournament, so even if you weren't invited you will still have a chance to test your mettle against the very best, and potentially even nab the grand prize itself.

If all of this sounds like something you might enjoy you can sign up for the Open Beta, or just find out a little bit more, by heading over to the official website. Have fun!
