To guarantee access to the first Smite 2 playtests, you can purchase the Founder’s Pack when pre-orders go live in Spring 2024.

When is the Smite 2 alpha?

The Smite 2 alpha takes place in Spring 2024. There is no exact date for the playtest yet, but we know that there will be monthly tests, so presumably the first of these will take place in early Spring with an alpha test maybe taking place in April, May, and June.

There will likely be around 11 Gods in the first alpha playtests, including the ten available in early preview builds, plus the first all-new Smite 2 God, Hecate. Up to 25 Gods will then be available for the beta testing period, which follows in mid to late 2024, according to the Smite 2 roadmap.
