Xbox One plays host to a battle of the gods as Smite enters open beta

Hi-Rez Studio's multiplayer, god-on-demigod brawler Smite entered open beta on Xbox One today, Microsoft spokesman Larry Hryb has announced. A trailer has also been released to celebrate the occasion, giving a glance at what lies in store:

The game, which launched on PC last year, sends two teams of up to five gods and historical figures drawn from real-world myth into battle with one another, as they fight to destroy both each other and their home bases. Ooh, ooh! I call Ah Muzen Cab, god of bees!
