If you enjoy playing MOBAs, but think you would love them even more if you could play with a controller, then you should go apply! Signups are being taken here. The open beta doesn’t have a set date, but if you apply, you’ll be thrown into a pool and the fine folks at Hi-Rez will randomly select players to participate.
For those unfamiliar with the game, Smite is a different take on the MOBA genre where deities fight in 5 versus 5 matches. According to the game’s official site, Smite incorporates a third-person point of view with a focus on action, whereas most MOBAs utilize a bird’s eye view.
Smite is free-to-play on PC and will presumably be the same when it releases on Xbox One, whenever that may be. Considering it’s already in beta, it’s looking on track for a release some time this year. Follow MONG to stay up-to-date on all the Smite news you need!
Whether you’re a fan of MOBAs or not, it’s always good news when more games move into beta and take another step towards final release! I signed up for the beta because I remember a co-worker talking about how all she played was Smite on PC. Hopefully I’ll get into the beta and get to see what it’s all about!
