SMITE now taking your pre-orders, beta begins soon

0

First of all, don't get confused. The upcoming action-MOBA title SMITE is still free-to-play. However, you can now plunk down twenty of your hard-earned dollars and not only be guaranteed beta access, but you'll get an extra ten heroes to play. You can also decide to unlock extra heroes with time played, just as you would in Hi-Rez's other free-to-play title, Tribes: Ascend. From the looks of it, this is only a limited-time offer and eventually it'll go up to $30. Oh, and there's a beta countdown timer as well, which will hit zero in about 16 days! You can check out the pre-order information here.

I played SMITE back at PAX East and had a pretty great time. My favorite part was definitely the option to auto-buy your items, since I think that will allow newer players to ease into the game better. Are you MOBA fiends looking forward to adding another game to your list? Or will you be passing up on SMITE?
