SMITE is currently in closed beta on Xbox One but Hi-Rez does plan on introducing a public beta later this month.
According to a new announcement, SMITE open beta will have Australian servers upon launch. Player accounts from closed beta will transition to the free-to-play open beta on Xbox One.
SMITE is the first major MOBA to be released on console and is designed from the ground-up to be playable on a controller.
According to Andy Anderson, Xbox One Senior Producer, Hi-Rez Studios.
We’re delighted to offer SMITE communities the best possible experience on PC and now console, and we are impressed with the growth of the game on PC in Australia. We are pleased to support the release of SMITE on Xbox One with dedicated Australian servers from next week.
SMITE open beta is scheduled to hit Xbox One on July 18. .
SMITE on PC had Aussie servers since October 2014 but since SMITE went into closed beta on Xbox One, players only had access to North American and European.
Due to Australian servers, players in Australia and New Zealand will experience better matchmaking and smoother gameplay.
