In an interesting bit of news today Hi-Rez Studios CEO HiRezErez announces during a live twitch stream that replay mode will be arriving for SMITE next week.
This news comes unexpectedly and is very exciting for the competitive community of SMITE. Hi-Rez Studios has essentially beaten League of Legends to the punch with this feature. While League of Legends does have a 3rd party replay solution it has yet to implement it as a core feature.
For those who do not know what a replay feature is, it allows you to watch a match after the fact. This new feature could be the start to many new features to the spectator mode of smite including an automatic 3 minute delay within the system and the capability to rewind on a play to watch those close encounters over and over again.
