Smite Now Available for Free on Xbox One
Hi-Rez Studios’ MOBA now available for Xbox Live Gold members to download.
Hi-Rex Studios’ free to play MOBA Smite is now officially available for Xbox One. The alpha and beta has already had more than one million players so there’s clearly an audience for the game.
Hi-Rez co-founder and COO Todd Harris stated that, “With over one million participants in our beta, there is clearly an appetite for the right MOBA on console. MOBAs have historically been a PC-only genre, but Smite’s action-oriented gameplay is a great fit with the Xbox One controller. The strong player retention we’ve seen during beta makes us confident that this is just the beginning for console MOBAs and console e-Sports.”
If you want to pay for a more complete package, you can buy the Smite Founder’s Pack – available till August 31st – for $29.99 and gain access to all present and future characters in the game. It should be noted that those downloading it for free will still need Xbox Live Gold.
