Today, SMITE adds its fourth platform to the Battleground: Nintendo Switch!
Players are already participating in the Closed Beta, and you can be a part of it, too! Gain instant access to the Closed Beta by purchasing the Founder’s Pack through the Nintendo eShop.
We are planning to have Closed Beta go until this Spring, so take this time to master your SMITE on Switch skills!
How do we get into the SMITE on Switch closed beta?
Currently, the only way to play SMITE on Switch is to purchase the Founder’s Pack in the Nintendo eShop. SMITE on Switch will be available to everyone at a later date once closed beta has ended.
What do I get when I buy the Founder’s pack? / Can I still Pre-Purchase the Founder’s Pack?
The Founder’s Pack is the best value for our players! It contains the Ultimate God Pack (which unlocks every past and future God/Goddess to ever be released in the game), 400 Gems (which can be used to make in-game purchases), Dashing Deceiver Loki skin, and Dragon Empress Scylla skin. If you Pre-Purchased before January 24th, you also received 200 bonus Gems and the Foxy Amaterasu skin!
When is SMITE on Switch officially launching?
We are planning to have SMITE on Switch officially launch in Spring 2019.
Do I need Nintendo Online to play SMITE on Switch?
No, you do not.
Will I be able to play the game if I have Founder account on PC?
You will be able to play once SMITE on Switch is out of the Closed Beta, but in order to access the Closed Beta, you must purchase the Founder’s Pack on Switch through the Nintendo eShop.
When will cross-play and cross-progression go live?
We have Cross-Progression and Cross-Play planned for Update 6.1, which is currently scheduled for February 5, 2019. Please check out our FAQ page for these questions: HiRezStudios.com/CrossPlay
Is SMITE on Switch a Free to Play game?
Yes! As it has been on all of our other three platforms, SMITE will remain a Free to Play game on Nintendo Switch after the Closed Beta ends this Spring.
I purchased the Founder’s Pack, but it doesn’t look like I have the Ultimate God Pack. What do I do?
If you are having trouble accessing all of the Gods/Goddesses, please log out and log back in. This should fix your problem instantly.
