Alpha sign ups are now live for SMITE 2, the sequel to Hi-Rez Studios’ hugely popular MOBA where gods beat the crap out of each other.
There were winners and losers during the post-Dota MOBA-boom, but SMITE was definitely one of the winners, with its mythology based take on the genre amassing over 40 million players. The gameplay in SMITE 2 looks set to be pretty similar, but with Unreal Engine powered visuals and promise of more impactful combat and new creative gameplay options.
It pretty much seems to be an upgraded version of the original game (which is no bad thing). Its auto-build and auto-levelling features also mena that it should be easily accessible to newcomers, while still providing plenty of strategic depth for seasoned players. Sign up for the Alpha to start beating up some gods early.
