Xbox One at Gamescom reveal Smite is heading to the console in 2015

Smite On Xbox One Announcement Screen 1

Hi-Rez Studios free-to-play MOBA heads to Xbox One with ID@Xbox in 2015.

Popular PC MOBA, Smite, is on its way to Xbox One via their ID@Xbox program. The program allows developers to self-publish their games onto the platform.

Already a well-established free-to-play MOBA title on PC, boasting over 5 million players, Smite pits two teams against each other in various game modes. Players have over fifty gods to choose from, ranging across various pantheons from Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Norse mythos and more.

Using a third-person view it’s the players’ goal to help defend their structures from the enemy players and AI, whilst levelling their own character, purchasing items, and attempting to destroy their enemies’ base. Smite seems like a well-matched title to bring to consoles – it looks amazing on PC, and is really fun too, plus its third-person view will probably translate well. So, hopefully Xbox One can take advantage of that.

Smite is currently available on PC via the website, so give it a try on there first, as it’s not due for release on Xbox One until 2015.
