The Basics

What is SMITE 2?

+
SMITE 2 is the next generation of cross-platform third-person MOBA. It is a true sequel to SMITE, fully modernized and rebuilt from the ground up in Unreal Engine 5.

Who is developing SMITE 2?

+
SMITE 2 is being designed and developed by the team at Titan Forge Games, who have spent the last decade focused on SMITE. The team is built of developers who have been working on SMITE since day 1, former SMITE pros and community members, and experienced developers who love SMITE; the average SMITE 2 team member has more than 6 years of experience working at Titan Forge Games or a sister studio.

Why make a true sequel to SMITE?

+
SMITE is an amazing game, loved by millions, that is built on a technical foundation that is now well over a decade old. This technical debt holds back what SMITE can be, from graphics to UI to audio to god creation and so much more. SMITE’s Unreal Engine 3 is not directly compatible with Unreal Engine 5, and there was no path to upgrade what we had without completely rebuilding. SMITE 2 starts from scratch and rebuilds SMITE to bring it into the modern age.

How different will SMITE 2 be from SMITE?

+
SMITE 2 should feel like the SMITE you know and love, just strictly better. Our core starting goal was to capture the magic of SMITE’s core combat and the MOBA formula. From there, we took every opportunity possible to make combat feel more impactful, enable more creative gameplay, and add additional strategic depth.

Will SMITE 2 have cross-play and cross-progression?

+
SMITE 2 will have cross-play and cross-progression across PC, SteamDeck, Xbox Series S|X, and PlayStation 5.

When and Where Can I Play?

What platforms will SMITE 2 be available on?

+
SMITE 2 is a next-gen native title, in development for PC (Steam and Epic Games Store), PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S|X, and SteamDeck.

When will SMITE 2 be released?

+
SMITE 2 is still in a pre-alpha development state. We hope to begin very early monthly alpha weekend testing with our community in Spring 2024. This is a true early alpha; a limited god roster will be available, and many features outside of the core gameplay experience will be unavailable.

Why run a true early Alpha?

+
Titan Forge Games believes that the best way to build a great multiplayer game is alongside its community. We followed the same strategy with SMITE in the early days on PC, and on console. We want to be sure we’re making the game that you want to play, changing things that you want changed, and responding to your feedback.

How Can I Get Access to SMITE 2 Alpha?

How can I play SMITE 2 Alpha?

+
Players can register now to be a part of upcoming Alpha Weekend Playtests.
  • Steam: Visit the SMITE 2 Steam Page, and click “Request Access.” You will be notified on Steam when access is granted. Don’t forget to Add to your Wishlist while you’re there!
  • PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S|X or Epic Games Store: Visit SMITE2.com, click “Register for Alpha,” and enter your email address. You will receive an email with an access code when access is granted.
  • Guaranteed instant access to Alpha playtests will also be granted through the purchase of a SMITE 2 Founder’s Editions. More information on Founder’s Editions can be found here.

Will there be an Ultimate God Pack for SMITE 2?

+
Players can unlock all present and future SMITE 2 gods by purchasing a SMITE 2 Founder’s Edition. More information on Founder’s Editions can be found here.

Will SMITE 2 be free-to-play?

+
SMITE 2 will be free-to-play upon full release. During our Alpha and Beta testing phases, players will need to redeem a free key, gain access via Steam Playtest, or purchase a Founder’s Edition to play. This limited access is so we can build and shape SMITE 2 alongside a smaller core community throughout our testing phases.

Transitioning from SMITE to SMITE 2

Will my SMITE 1 Skins transfer to SMITE 2?

+
Most SMITE 1 content will not directly transfer to SMITE 2, but SMITE players will be rewarded for their time, money, and achievements through two new systems: Legacy Gems, and Divine Legacy. In addition, new skins added to SMITE 1 in Season 11, along with some limited other cross-gen skins, will transfer between the games (see below for more).

What are Legacy Gems?

+
For every Gem that you've ever spent in SMITE 1 – free or purchased – you'll receive a Legacy Gem in SMITE 2. Legacy Gems can be used to pay for 50% of the price of most in-game purchases in SMITE 2 – so things like skins, Battle Passes, and events in SMITE 2 will be half-off until you spend all of your Legacy Gems.
If you purchase a SMITE Founder’s Edition, your Legacy Gems will be doubled. As SMITE 2’s currency is changing slightly from SMITE, this ensures that you will have equivalent purchasing power. (Equivalency based on Gems per dollar value when purchased at the $99.99 currency edition.) We’ll have more details to share about our Founder’s Editions soon.

What is the Divine Legacy?

+
The Divine Legacy is a new event in SMITE 1 designed to reward you for your progress and achievements over each year of SMITE’s history. We’ve tracked the gods you’ve mastered, the ranked matches you’ve lost, the skins you’ve unlocked, and the match hours you’ve played. You earn points for your progress in each year, and your points are tallied together to give you rewards:
  • You can unlock a choose-your-own Tier 5 and a choose-your-own Tier 4 in SMITE 1
  • You’ll unlock up to 11 skins in SMITE 2, free – one for each year of SMITE
  • You’ll get a number of SMITE 2 Badges to show off some of your amazing SMITE 1 achievements, your rare skins – and your exact Mastery Level and Star Count on each God. Don't worry: You'll be able to show off those 100 stars on Nox in SMITE 2.

What are Cross-Gen Skins?

+
All new, gem-purchasable skins released in SMITE in Year 11 will be Cross-Gen skins. Purchasers will receive these skins in SMITE 2 as well as SMITE. Titan Forge Games rebuilt its internal skin development pipeline to be able to support this for Year 11, which effectively requires building each skin twice.

Will SMITE 1 continue to be supported?

+
Yes! SMITE 1 will continue to receive regular updates and servers will remain available for the foreseeable future. Players will be able to access all of their SMITE 1 content in SMITE 1.

Why aren’t you porting all of SMITE 1’s content to SMITE 2?

+
SMITE 2 is a multi-generational leap from SMITE 1, from Unreal Engine 3 to UE5. That means we have to completely rework or recreate every piece of content for it to function in SMITE 2. There are currently over 1,600 skins in SMITE, excluding Mastery skins. To just port every skin to SMITE 2 would take about 246 person-years of work. And we couldn’t both do that, and make SMITE 2 as amazing as we knew it could be if we focused on starting anew.

How do I link my SMITE and SMITE 2 accounts on Xbox, PlayStation or PC?

+
Players will need to link their SMITE 1 account to their SMITE 2 account in order to receive Cross-Gen content and Legacy Gems in SMITE 2.

You cannot link new SMITE 1 platform accounts after you link to SMITE 2. Please be sure you have linked all of your SMITE 1 accounts at https://my.hirezstudios.com/linked-accounts before linking to SMITE 2.

In order to link, you must log into SMITE on the platform you intend to play SMITE 2 on, then click “Link Account” from within the Divine Legacy tab. This will link your SMITE 1 account to that platform account.

Account linking is irreversible. Be sure you are on the platform you intend to play SMITE 2 on before clicking Link Account.

Closer to the release of SMITE 2, you will be able to link your SMITE 2 account from your primary account platform to other platform accounts to enable cross-progression in SMITE 2.

How do I link my SMITE and SMITE 2 accounts if I’m playing on Nintendo Switch?

+
Visit https://my.hirezstudios.com/linked-accounts to link your Nintendo account to another supported platform account, then follow the above steps for that platform.

Founder’s Editions

When can I pick up a Founder’s Edition for SMITE 2?

+
SMITE 2 Founder’s Edition will be available for pre-order starting on April 15 for Steam, Epic Games, PlayStation, and Xbox. Founder’s Editions will be available for purchase all the way up until free to play launch.

Are there different versions of the SMITE 2 Founder’s Edition? How much are they and what do they include?

+
Check out the infographic below for a breakdown of each SMITE 2 Founder’s Edition option! Regional pricing variability may apply depending on where you live.

Can I still participate in the Closed Alpha Weekend Test Period even if I don’t purchase a Founder’s Edition?

+
Yes, keys for Closed Alpha Game Access will be made available from time-to-time via giveaways on social media as well as sent to select players that have signed up for Alpha access via our website, but purchasing a Founder’s Edition is the only way to guarantee game access for SMITE 2.

NOTE - Xbox players will also need to have an active Xbox Live Gold/Game Pass Core subscription in order to participate in Closed Alpha Weekend Tests regardless of how access was obtained (via a Founder’s Edition or a key giveaway).

If my accounts are linked will I get SMITE 2 game access on all my available platforms if I purchase a SMITE 2 Founder’s Edition?

+
No, SMITE 2 game access will only be granted on the platform where you purchase a Founder’s Edition.

If my accounts are linked will I be able to use the Neith and Zeus Cross-Gen Skins in SMITE 1 on all my available platforms if I purchase a SMITE 2 Founder’s Edition?

+
Yes, in SMITE 1, Cross-Gen skins from the SMITE 2 Founder’s Edition will be able to be used on your accounts via cross-progression following the current rules outlined here.

If I wait until after the Closed Alpha Weekend Test period to purchase a Founder’s Edition will I still get the Cacodemon 2 Skin for Ymir in SMITE 2?

+
No, the Cacodemon 2 Ymir skin in SMITE 2 will only be included in the Founder’s Editions for those that pre-order a SMITE 2 Founder’s Edition during the Closed Alpha period. The Skin will be available for purchase separately in SMITE 2 in the future.

I see the Deluxe and Ultimate Founder’s Editions include Ascension Passes. What are those?

+
Ascension Passes are the all new progression system that reward you as you level up your God Masteries! We will have more information on these before they release in Summer 2024.

After purchasing a Founder’s Edition, when will my content be available for use in SMITE 1 and SMITE 2?

+
Founder’s Edition cosmetics will be available for use in SMITE 1 immediately after purchase of a Founder’s Edition (may require you to re-login to receive your content), and in SMITE 2 when closed alpha testing begins. NOTE - Players will need to log into SMITE 1 and link their accounts via the Divine Legacy page in order to have access to Founder’s Edition content in SMITE 2 during our Closed Alpha Weekend Playtests. If you have already linked accounts, you will need to log into SMITE 1 after purchasing a Founder’s Edition at least once in order for Cross-Gen content to unlock in SMITE 2 during weekend Alpha Playtests. Ascension Passes will be released in SMITE 2 later in 2024.

When does SMITE 2 Closed Alpha testing begin?

+
We're not quite ready to reveal the dates for our first Closed Alpha Weekend test this Spring. Be sure to keep an eye on our official Twitter/X, Instagram, Facebook, and Discord for news and updates!

Will I be able to upgrade my Founder’s Edition later if I buy the base Edition now?

+
Yes! Only the SMITE 2 Founder's Edition, Deluxe Edition, and Ultimate Edition are available now, but we plan to add upgrade options later on when we are able to add them in game -- likely this summer!
