SMITE – Xbox One Developer Diary

Hi-Rez Studios has released a new developer diary to welcome SMITE and MOBA newcomers on Xbox One.

As the online Battleground of the Gods, featuring over 60 playable deities, SMITE includes a pantheon of cooperative and competitive game modes to play alone or with friends:

  • Arena (5v5) – SMITE’s take on Team Deathmatch. Go online, or load up some bots for local or co-op play.
  • Conquest (5v5) – Classic MOBA gameplay. Three lanes, minions, towers and a titan boss fight.
  • Joust (1v1 to 3v3) – One-lane, head-to-head competition. Quick, brutal and fun.
  • Siege (4v4) – Two-lane combat fueled by colossal siege monsters that either team can summon.
  • Assault (5v5) – All Gods are picked randomly before duking it out in one giant lane of chaos.

There’s also the Match of the Day, which mixes the daily challenge up in different ways, as well as practice, tutorial and co-op modes for those just getting started.

SMITE, currently in Season 2 on PC, will enter closed alpha testing on Xbox One on March 11th to prepare for its official release. To sign up for the upcoming closed beta, coming to Xbox One this spring, visit www.SmiteGame.com/Xbox.
