Yesterday, Major Nelson announced on the Xbox Daily show that Smite would be part of the Summer Spotlight. On July 8th, Smite will transition from closed beta to open beta. Hi-Rez has promised a smooth transition including no data wipes of presently earned Gods, currency, achievements and more.
We reached out to Hi-Rez to confirm if Xbox One achievements would launch alongside the the open beta or in a prior patch. At this time, we haven’t been given a definitive answer. We will continue to check on this and update if we get a full confirmation on the timing.
If you are interested in getting access to Smite prior to the launch date, you can still buy the Smite Founders Pack for $30 which includes access to the game, all current and future gods, two exclusive God skins and 400 gems (premium currency). This bundle honestly is a steal if you know you are a fan of the game or the MOBA genre. Check out Nathan’s thoughts here and here.
