  3. Click “Mac Beta” where you’ll be directed to the STEAM website
  4. Click the green “Play Game” button

Where do I submit feedback?

Submit your feedback HERE!

 

Are Mac and Steam/PC separate player bases?

No, they are the same player base. You will still need a Hi-Rez account to play, even from a Steam installation.

 

Do I need to make a new account?

Only new players will need to create a new account; players with existing accounts will still be able to use them through the Steam installation.

 

What features of Steam are available?

You will have access to the Steam Overlay, Achievements, and the ability to make purchases with your Steam Wallet.

 

Can I use Steam Wallet for Gems?

Yes. A Steam-installed copy of SMITE will use the Steam Wallet instead of the Hi-Rez website for Gem purchasing.
