Today, Hi-Rez Studios announced that their popular MOBA, SMITE, has entered open beta on Xbox One.
Previously, the game was only available as a closed beta via a special promotional code but now that the floodgates have been opened Xbox One users can get their first taste of the addictive third-person MOBA action.
SMITE features an in-game marketplace that allows players to purchase new mythological gods, cosmetic skins for existing gods, and more. The in-game store is already live on Xbox One.The game is set to officially launch later this Summer and all purchases, stats, and achievements will carry over to the full version.
SMITE players who own the game on both PC and Xbox One will be able to link their accounts to receive a free Zeus skin that can be used in either version of SMITE. There is also the option for a one-time transfer of game progress from the PC version of SMITE to the Xbox One.
Xbox One players can purchase the Founder’s Pack for $29.99 which includes instant access to all current gods (65 on Xbox One to date), all future gods, 400 Gems, the exclusive Ares “Soldier of Fortune” skin, and the limited Ymir “Cacodemon X” skin. Those who wish to purchase this pack will need to act fast however, as it will be removed from the in-game marketplace once the game officially launches later in the Summer.
SMITE is one of the world’s largest eSports franchises and is Xbox One’s first MOBA. In a unique twist on MOBA genre, SMITE features a third-person over-the-shoulder viewpoint that pulls players right into the action. It offers a wide array of modes and features to suit a range of player tastes, from the traditional 5v5 multi-lane battles to smaller, single-path jousts and wide-open arena battles.
The SMITE open beta can be accessed via the Xbox Store on Xbox One or via the game’s website.
