Want to play Smite on Xbox One? We have 5,000 more beta codes to give away

You may remember that we were giving away codes for the Smite closed beta on Xbox One earlier this week. Well, the first 5,000 went pretty fast - so fast, in fact, that Hi-Rez Studios has given us another batch. We've already told you how we think the third-person, action-oriented MOBA has the potential to be a very important game, and now you have the chance to join those deciding for themselves.

Getting a code guarantees you early access to the console version of the game - just enter your email into the form below, and you'll be sent a code, which you can redeem in the Store section of your Xbox One dashboard. Fair warning - it's first-come, first-served, so don't wait around!

If you miss out, stifle those tears - you can still be in with a chance of scoring free access to the beta by heading to the Smite Xbox One website and signing up there. The game will remain free upon release (and forever), so you will get a chance to play for free whatever happens.

That said, if really you want to guarantee your place among the beta pantheon, you can buy the pre-release only Founder's Pack for £20.99 - it includes "every God currently in the game (63 so far) and all Gods still to come in the future; 400 Gems; and two exclusive skins - Ares “Soldier of War” and the Limited Ymir “Cacodemon X” skin".

Here's a new trailer, too:

Joe first fell in love with games when a copy of The Lion King on SNES became his stepfather in 1994. When the cartridge left his mother in 2001, he turned to his priest - a limited edition crystal Xbox - for guidance. And now he's here.
