MOBA phenomenon Smite is coming soon to PS4

Are you ready to play god?

Smite is coming to PS4! The game officially enters closed alpha testing on PS4 today, and will begin closed beta in early March. Players can opt in now for a chance to receive a free closed beta invite in the near future.

Billed as the Battleground of the Gods, Smite features over 70 playable gods and mythological creatures from eight different pantheons around the world, all battling for domination across six intense game modes.

Created by Hi-Rez Studios in 2013, Smite currently supports a global player community of over 14 million players, which will grow even larger when the game becomes available on PS4. Smite’s team-based action, third-person controls, and deep roster of playable gods make it an ideal fit for the PS4, where it will become the biggest multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game ever to go from PC to PS4.

Smite always has been and always will be completely free-to-play. Once the beta begins, PS4 players will have instant access to all of Smite’s game modes, as well as Smite’s five free gods (Ymir, Thor, Neith, Guan Yu and Ra) and any gods currently available in the free rotation. Additional gods may be unlocked with Favor or Gems, or via special community events.

As Smite makes its way to PS4, the closed beta will introduce several new skins for the gods of Smite, each available exclusively through PS4. Odin’s “World’s Collide” skin will serve as the free reward for players who link their PS4 accounts to their Hi-Rez PC accounts. Additionally, Kulkulkan’s “KuKu4” skin serves as the exclusive reward for all PlayStation Plus members. Finally, Ymir’s “C4codemon” skin can be found in the PS4 Founder’s Pack, which will be available for purchase on PlayStation Network during the closed beta period.

Aside from “C4codemon” Ymir, the Founder’s Pack also unlocks all present and future gods in Smite, 400 Gems, an Ares “Soldier of Fortune” skin and a key for instant beta access. The Founder’s Pack will be available at €23.99/£20.99, however players who would rather join the beta for free can opt-in to receive a free beta invite here.

Nice, but without account transfer from PC useless for me, cuz I opened too much stuff… I’ll stick to TGT & Paragon till then. But as I know, box users didn’t had a chance to transfer. Maybe I am wrong

    You was able to on the xbox one. I don’t see why not on here. They have an exclusive skin for doing so.

Only interested if I can transfer PC account

Like others are saying with an account transfer, but as I barely played the PC version, I’d want to transfer my progress over from my Xbox One. Can definitely not see this happening, but it would be an amazing move from you guys.

 

Sweet, this was the only thing i was keeping my xbox around for!

AWESOME!

But without PC account transfer i probebly wont be playing it over any of the other MOBAs, so please make sure we can.

 

Awesome. This game most good than other mobas. It will be fantastic on PS4. I have been interesting to Egypt mythology for a long time. I can’t wait for being Anubis!

Any news on why the founders pack is £24.99 and not £20.99 as stated in this blog?
