Third-person action game Smite, the Xbox One's first MOBA, is now available for the console by way of a closed beta test. Anyone who previously took part in the Smite alpha or was chosen for the closed beta will get to play. You can sign up for the Smite Xbox One closed beta here.

Smite is a free-to-play game, but players can spend money on items like currency Gems, new characters, and cosmetic skins by way of its in-game marketplace. You can also buy the $30 Founder's Pack, which comes with instant access to the Xbox One closed beta.

The Founder's Pack also includes every God character currently in the game and all additional Gods to come, as well as 400 Gems and two exclusive skins. This bundle will be removed from sale when the full version of Smite launches on Xbox One later this year.

If you do get into the Smite Xbox One beta, all your progress and achievements will carry forward to the full version.

Smite developer Hi-Rez Studios has also announced an account merge option for PC players who want to carry their progress over to the Xbox One edition. You can get the full details on this process here.

Originally released in March 2014 for PC to a positive critical reception, Smite has attracted more than 7 million players to date. The game is focused around the Gods of mythology, and Hi-Rez claims it offers "more game modes than any other leading game in its genre."
