SMITE Tactics changes its name to something more godly

Hand of the Gods: SMITE Tactics console

Well, color us surprised. Hi-Rez Studios has just announced that SMITE Tactics went through a name change and from now on you shall know it as Hand of the Gods: SMITE Tactics. While there's nothing mentioning the reasoning behind this decision, Hi-Rez did mention that SMITE tactics was always meant as a working title and the final name was now revealed. This is one of the steps the studio is taking to give this game its own identity and make it stand on its own, although it's difficult not to connect it with the acclaimed MOBA SMITE. This is Hi-Rez's first Unreal Engine 4 game.

Hi-Rez also makes a recap of the past four months of closed beta, which saw Roman and Chinese pantheons added, refined gameplay and plenty of spit and shine. There is no open beta date yet, however.
