    Thanks again for everyone who participated in our AMA on r/XboxOne. We had some great questions that we wanted to share here:

    Why should I play SMITE on Xbox?
    SMITE has a lot of things that make it fun to play! One of the key things is the 3rd person camera angle which gives you a great feel for being in the game and requires skill shots to hit your opponents. This gives you direct control of your character similar to what you experience in an MMO or Shooter game. SMITE has multiple game modes you can try out to go with the 63 Gods (plus a new one every 3 - 4 weeks) to try out and master.

    How does your moba differ from other MOBAs?
    As noted above SMITE has a “3rd Person” camera, while traditional MOBA games play with the "above the map" isometric camera angle the difference between the two is MASSIVE. It makes the game feel much more action oriented, makes ganking a major component (you can't see behind you as easily), and makes for some very unique abilities. Other game modes (1 lane, 2 lane, 3 lanes, and Arena) along with auto buying items and auto leveling abilities make it more accessible.

    Does the game offer tutorials for those new to MOBAs and SMITE in general?
    Yes, the game has tutorials and we also offer practice mode for each game type where you play against bots. You can also team up with a co-op buddy to take on bots together.

    Can you add an adjustable Y axis?
    We are looking at options to implement this, so it is definitely on our radar.

    Will it be on the same patch schedule as the PC version?
    During the Alpha and Beta periods we will typically be about 1 month behind the PC version. Once we launch we will be working to be as close as possible to the PC version, most likely staying 2- 3 weeks behind.

    Will the friend referral system be on Xbox?
    We’re working with Microsoft to see what our best options are to implement friend referrals.

    Have you considered cross platform play?
    While technically possible, it’s not in our current plans.

    When will conquest be available?
    Conquest will be available in April.

    Will match history be available?
    Match history will be available in April.

    Will there be Xbox exclusive skins?
    Yes!

    Will there be league support?
    Yes, it’s something we’re working on now for a future release.

    Will my data carry over from Alpha to Beta to Launch?
    Yes, there will be no data wipe.

    Will favorite and popular items be available?
    Yes, coming soon!

    Will VGS be implemented?
    Yes, target is to have this included in the Closed Beta launch.

    How will Xbox sales differ from PC?
    We’re aiming at keeping sales similar across both platforms.

    Will it be playable outside of the US?
    Yes, SMITE on the Xbox One will launch simultaneously in North America, Europe, and Australia.
