Hi-Rez launches open beta for free-to-play SMITE

0

Now would be a great time to dive in

After spending a generous amount of time in closed beta, SMITE has opened up. The full release isn't here yet, but now players can get into this rather enjoyable MOBA without having to beg for a key. The video above walks through what's new, and Hi-Rez Studios has also announced its sponsorship of a $100,000 launch tournament that we'll be hearing about at a later date.

"SMITE has been our fastest growing game to date, with over 900,000 players participating in Beta already," said Hi-Rez COO Todd Harris. "We’ve been giving out keys very liberally, but today we officially drop the key requirement in order to stress and stabilize our North American and European servers in preparation for release. We will continue to polish the game, release additional gods, and further refine the god and item balance over the coming weeks before a general release later this quarter."

Those who reach level 30 during the beta period will unlock a limited-edition demon skin for Ymir that looks worth earning. Check the galley to see for yourself. By the way, if you're attempting to get people you know into the game, be sure to use the Refer-a-Friend feature.
