What’s New?!

Core gameplay changes!

SMITE Tactics Core game mode has seen significant changes this patch. We have introduced Summoning Stones to both sides of the board as the main objective. Build your deck and march your Divine Army forward to destroy the opponents Summoning Stones, while being mindful to protect your own!

  • Players are able to deploy units around their Leader or their Summoning Stones.
  • If your Leader dies he will be returned to your hand, and your Leader Ability will be disabled. You will be able to deploy your Leader around one of your Summoning Stones for 4 Mana, but the cost will increase by 1 Mana each time your Leader dies.When your Leader dies you no longer have access to your Leader’s ability unless you redeploy him to the battlefield.
  • There is currently four categories in our game: Structures (Summoning Stones/Enyo Flag), Leaders, Spells, and Units which consist of Beasts, Minions, and Gods.
