After a successful alpha, and in anticipation of the game's release later this year, Hi-Rez Studios has announced that their action-MOBA SMITE
has entered the closed beta stage of development. In a video released alongside the announcement, Community Content Manager Kelly Link, Community Manager Amanda Erickson and Xbox Esports Manager Scott Lussier all talk about SMITE
on Xbox One and how you can get into the beta.
The full version of SMITE
is scheduled to launch on Xbox One later this year, but as mentioned in the video, there are two ways to get into the closed beta. The first way is to sign up here
and hope you get in. For a more definite way of getting into the beta you can buy the Founder's Pack to get instant access to the beta for £20.99/€23.99/US$29.99.
For anyone perhaps shocked at that price, that isn't all the Founder's Pack gets you. You also get access to all Gods in the game and any added in the future, 400 Gems to spend at the in-game store, and two exclusive skins - the Limited Ymir "Cacodemon X" skin and Ares "Soldier of War". The Founder's Pack won't be available forever, however, and will be discontinued when the full game releases.
