SMITE for Xbox One officially launches Aug. 19, Founder's Pack offer ends on Aug. 31

After about a month and a half in open beta testing, developer Hi-Rez Studios will bring the Xbox One version of their mythology-themed free-to-play MOBA game SMITE out of beta on August 19.

The SMITE Founder's Pack, priced at $29.99, will no longer be available on August 31. It offers Xbox One players unlocks all of the games's Gods, both present and future, along with 400 of its in-game gems and two exclusive character skins. That same date is the deadline for players who which to merge their SMITE Xbox One and PC accounts.

Once again, here's the quick description of SMITE:

""SMITE is the online battleground of the gods. Players choose from a diverse cast of deities and use their unique powers to triumph over the opposition in 5v5 team matches. SMITE is a new take on the MOBA genre; rather than observing from above the action, the game's third person perspective puts players into the thick of combat.""
