SMITE Alpha comes to Xbox preview members


If you’re participating in the Xbox Preview program and happen to be one of the lucky ones then today you might be in for a pleasant surprise. Xbox are issuing out SMITE Alpha codes to a select few inviting them to take part in early testing of the game.

SMITE is the online battleground of the gods. Players choose from a diverse cast of deities and use their unique powers to triumph over the opposition in 5v5 team matches. Smite is a new take on the MOBA genre; rather than observing from above the action, the game’s third person perspective puts players into the thick of combat.

This is the second time this week that the preview program has offered something a little extra to its users. So keep an eye on your inbox and pray to the gods that you might be one of the chosen few.
