This was quietly revealed through today’s European eShop update. Apparently Smite will be released in a similar way as Paladins on Nintendo Switch – the game won’t be free at launch, as you will need to fork out EUR26.31/GBP23.69 for a Smite Founder’s Pack, 200 gems, and 400 gems to gain early access to the Smite. It’ll probably be a few months before we can all play the game for free.
Check out the trailer and details below.
