Smite World Championships hosts first public showing of Xbox One version

The Xbox One version of Smite is currently in development, but Hi-Rez Studios has announced those attending the Smite World Championships will be able to get their hands on the game for the first time.


Hi-Rez Studios has announced the Xbox One version of Smite will make its first public appearance during the Smite World Championship, which is taking place at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, Georgia on January 9th to the 11th.

Those in attendance will be able to play a pre-release version of Smite on the Xbox One in its own dedicated area within the venue. If you plan on watching the championship on Twitch, Hi-Rez will be giving viewers a sneak peak of Smite running on the Xbox One during the first day of competition.

Hi-Rez Studios says they’ve remade Smite from the ground up to deliver the same experience PC players have been enjoying for several months, while also offering a comfortable, natural feel for Xbox One players.

I’m certainly interested to see just how well Smite translates to the Xbox One as I’ve been looking to get back into the MOBA scene since the last one I really got into was the original DOTA. Yea - it’s been a long time.
