Titled Smite 2, this sequel is poised to redefine the MOBA genre with its innovative features and enhanced gameplay.

Key Highlights of Smite 2:

  • Platform Availability: Smite 2 will be accessible on multiple platforms, including Steam, Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.
  • Closed Alpha Testing: The game is set to enter closed alpha testing in spring 2024, though a specific release date is yet to be announced.
  • Initial Roster: At launch, Smite 2 will feature 25 gods, with plans to eventually incorporate every deity from the original game.
  • New Additions: Among the new gods, Hecate, the Greek goddess of sorcery, has been confirmed, following popular demand from fans.
  • Gameplay Enhancements: Described by Smite general manager Travis Brown as a MOBA with “more impact, more strategy, and more creativity,” Smite 2 aims to elevate the gaming experience.
  • Cross-Play and Cross-Progression: The game will support full cross-play and cross-progression across PC and console versions.
