It’s the buzz of the gaming world, game developer Hi-Rez Studios has just confirmed reports that Smite will exit its beta and will be released on PlayStation 4 consoles next week.
Launched on PC in 2014, Smite is a third-person multiplayer online battle arena or MOBA for short. The game focuses on the pantheons of gods spanning several ancient mythologies. Players take part in arena combat, using abilities and team tactics against other player-controlled gods and non-player controlled minions. Here, players can choose between 76 gods and immortals from eight different pantheons, which include Chinese, Egyptian, Greek, Hindu, Japanese, Mayan, Norse and Roman mythology.
The developer, Hi-Rez Studios, claims that Smite has over 14 million players worldwide and is also available on PC and Microsoft Xbox One.
The world’s no.1 action MOBA game has been in open beta on the console for some time. Developer Hi-Rez has made some plenty of changes since the beta officially launched. These include upping the frame rate to 60 per second and adding new game modes such as Clash and Siege modes. In addition, the developer will also introduce new playable gods to the title, bringing the total number of playable characters up to 75.
Even though Smite is set to fully PS4 release next week, it also seems as though Hi-Rez Studios is far from done with changes to the game.
According to Polygon, Hi-Rez plans to continue introducing new content to the title every few weeks over the next year. Starting with the Viking Invasion event next week. Reports said that Smite players will continue to receive a good level of content long after the game’s launch across all planned gaming platforms.
Smite, which already available for both PC and Microsoft Xbox One, will come out of its beta and will be released for PS4 on May 31, 2016.
