Smite is coming to PS4, closed alpha kicks off today

PlayStation-exclusive skins are coming

Hi-Rez Studios is bringing Smite to PlayStation 4, the developer announced today. The third-person action MOBA will, like its PC and Xbox One counterparts, be free-to-play.

Smite is entering a closed alpha phase on PS4 as of today, Feb. 19, and will go into closed beta in March, Hi-Rez said on the PlayStation Blog. PS4 owners can opt in for a chance to play the beta through the Smite website.

The PS4 version of Smite will feature five free playable gods with a rotation of other free playable characters. Hi-Rez will sell a $29.99 Founder's Pack when the closed beta kicks off. That pack will include access to "all present and future gods in Smite," 400 gems and a skin for the character Ares. Hi-Rez plans to release a pair of PS4-exclusive skins for players who link their Smite PC accounts to their PS4 account and for PlayStation Plus subscribers.

More details on the PS4 version of Smite are available in Hi-Rez's official FAQ.

Smite, which features "more than 70 playable gods and mythological creatures from eight different pantheons around the world," originally launched in 2014 on Windows PC. An Xbox One version was released in August 2015.
