SMITE is a third-person multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game. It’s a free-to-play title developed by Titan Forge Games and published by Hi-Rez Studios.

It was initially released on March 25, 2014, for PC, but it has since made its way to platforms such as Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch. This is a multiplayer-only title.

So is SMITE crossplay across different gaming platforms?

Yes, Smite is cross-platform between PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch, which means Smite allows crossplay between PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Switch. Smite is also cross-gen, but only through backward compatibility for now.

Smite FAQ:

Pick your favorite God(ess) and see the answer to more questions below.

​Is SMITE cross-generation?

Yes, Smite is cross-gen – though only through backward compatibility. That means that Xbox Series X/S owners can crossplay Smite together with Xbox One owners. Likewise, PS5 players can play Smite together with PS4 players. That’s because it’s the same version of the game running on both platforms.

​Is SMITE cross-progression?

Since Season 6, Smite has been cross-progression, meaning the game supports cross-save between different platforms. I believe it’s because everything is saved server side. You’ll need to link your account online on Hi-Rez for this to work.

​Is SMITE online only?

SMITE is only online, meaning you need a working internet connection to play SMITE.

​Is SMITE single-player?

SMITE has a single-player practice mode you can play against bots. Also, the first five levels are practice levels, which means you need to get to level six before playing against other human players.

​Is SMITE free?

Yes, SMITE is free to play.

​What is SMITE? – A quick overview for beginner players.

  • Game Developer: Titan Forge Games
  • Game Publisher: Hi-Rez Studios, Tencent (China)
  • Genre: MOBA

The lore of Smite is usually told through story arcs several chapters long.

These are typically featured in special events to give players more information about the characters and game world.

That being said, I wouldn’t call Smite a story-driven game, but it has an interesting world where players control gods, goddesses, and other mythological beings.

​Gameplay

Smite is one of the games that helped to popularize the MOBA genre. There are several different game modes that you can enjoy when playing Smite.

The most popular mode is conquest, where players form teams of five to compete against each other.

You get a certain amount of gold to start buying items before the game starts, and these items can enhance your character or grant other bonuses. 

Your goal during the game is to destroy the opposing team’s Phoenixes and a giant warrior known as the Titan.

Players have minions that accompany them that are essentially small and weak soldiers. Unless they’re destroyed, minions continue to spawn at the Phoenixes every 30 seconds. Taking them out is a key part of winning a match in this title.
