Smite 2 Announced: A Godlike Upgrade!

Unreal Engine 5 to Bring Even More Godlike Impact to Smite 2

Smite 2 is on the way, but it’s not going to replace the original Smite.

Hi-Rez Studios and Titan Forge Games have just revealed that they will be launching a sequel to the wildly popular third-person MOBA, Smite. Since its release in 2014, Smite has amassed an impressive player base of 40 million. Now, the developers are back with Smite 2, promising an epic upgrade powered by Unreal Engine 5 and full cross-play and cross-progression support.

A Graphical Leap of Mythical Proportions

The transition from Smite’s current Unreal Engine 3 to the latest offering from Epic Games will result in a godlike impact for Smite 2. Expect mind-blowing graphical upgrades and dazzling effects that will transport you straight into the divine realms. But it’s not just about the visuals; gameplay improvements are also on the horizon. Titan Forge and Hi-Rez are revamping the user interface and fine-tuning the matchmaking system to ensure a smoother and more enjoyable experience for all players.

Control the Gods Your Way

Smite 2 will cater to all types of players by offering multiple control schemes right from the start. Whether you prefer the precision of a keyboard and mouse, the familiarity of a controller, or the convenience of a handheld device like the SteamDeck, you’ll have the freedom to play the game the way you want. With this level of accessibility, no deity will be out of your reach.

Old Gods Never Die

Don’t worry, the original Smite is not going anywhere. Titan Forge and Hi-Rez are committed to keeping the original game running as a stand-alone title. Regular updates will continue, and the servers will remain available indefinitely. However, since Smite 2 is a whole new adventure, not all cosmetics from the original game will carry over. With 1,600 skins in Smite (excluding Mastery skins), porting them all to Smite 2 would require an astonishing 246 person-years of work. Instead, the focus will be on creating a fresh and amazing experience in the sequel.

An Alpha Playtest in the Spring

Excitement is building as an alpha playtest of Smite 2 is scheduled for the spring. If you’re itching to get your hands on the godlike upgrade, you can register to participate on the official Smite 2 website. This is your chance to shape the game and be among the first to experience the divine battles that await.

Available on Multiple Platforms

Smite 2 will take the epic showdown to a variety of platforms, including PlayStation 5, SteamDeck, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X. Just like its predecessor, Smite 2 will be free to play, allowing gamers from all walks of life to join in the divine skirmishes and forge their paths to godhood.

Q&A – The Gods Hear Your Questions

Q: Will my cosmetics from Smite be transferred to Smite 2?

A: Unfortunately, not all cosmetics will carry over to Smite 2.

Fear not, though, as the original Smite will continue to receive updates and remain available for the foreseeable future.

Q: Can I participate in the alpha playtest of Smite 2?

A: Absolutely! If you want to be among the first to experience the godlike upgrade, you can register to participate in the alpha playtest. Visit the official Smite 2 website for more information on how to join the epic battle.

Q: Which platforms will Smite 2 be available on?

A: Smite 2 will grace PlayStation 5, SteamDeck, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X, ensuring that players on multiple platforms can engage in divine warfare.
