MOBA game Smite Coming soon to Xbox One.
During Microsoft’s press conference at Gamescom this year, Smite was revealed in a trailer along with many other amazing looking games, all of which are coming to Xbox One thanks to the ID@Xbox programme. Smite is by far in my opinion the stand out game in the incredible line up that was showcased in the trailer, and to make it even better, its Free to play.
Smite is a MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) which would usually worry me, as MOBA’s don’t convert to Consoles that well. Smite looks set to break the trend and could become the biggest and best MOBA the consoles will ever see.
Hi-Rez Studios third person action MOBA Smite sees you take control of a god (Hercules,Thor,Poseidon & many more) as you battle in a player vs player arena, with the help of AI controlled mythological creatures helping you fight and ultimately destroy the enemy base. For those of you that are worried that a MOBA game won’t work on a Console Chris Charla( Director of ID@Xbox for Microsoft) had this to say “As a third person action game, Smite is perfectly suited for the Xbox One controller” whether that will be the case we will have to wait to see.
Smite is just one of a whole explosion of Free-to-play games that are making there way to Xbox One over the next year, which is such exciting news, see my recent post on Dungeons & Dragons Neverwinter, another amazing looking Free-to-play game coming to Xbox One in 2015. The fact that Smite is a Free-to-play game, is the main reason I think this game is going to thrive on The Xbox One and I hope I’m right. The Xbox One console really is the perfect platform to launch a game like Smite to the masses, why not check out the trailer below.
