Back in April Hi-Rez Studios announced SMITE Blitz, an upcoming action RPG for mobile that is based in an alternate universe of Hi-Rez’s super popular MOBA SMITE. It looks to provide “a huge variety of story, challenge and PvP game modes" and will launch with 60 of the Gods from SMITE proper, with more already planned to be added post-release. At the time of that announcement a technical alpha version was made available for early players to test out, and Hi-Rez has stated that that early testing phase was extremely helpful in ironing out issues when a huge number of players were accessing the game. Now they’re moving onto the next phase and preparing a soft-launch for SMITE Blitz, and they’ve also made the game available for pre-registration on both iOS and Android alongside releasing this nifty new trailer.
As with most pre-registration campaigns for upcoming free to play games, the more people that pre-register, the more rewards will unlock when the game officially launches. As shown on the game’s official website, in-game gems will be awarded at the 250,000 and 500,000 marks, “Sacrificial Crystals" will be awarded at 750,000, and if the pre-registrations get to the one million mark then the Mayan God of Rain Chaac will be given out to all players. You can add to these numbers by pre-ordering SMITE Blitz on the iOS App Store here, or by pre-registering on the Google Play Store for Android here. As mentioned a soft launch should be happening soon, and the expected release date on the pre-order page is listed as November 1st, so expect to hear more from SMITE Blitz in the near future.
