SMITE is a free-to-play 3rd person MOBA game made by Hi-Rez Studios where players fight it out in the battleground of the gods! Get ready for an online battleground where all the gods that have ever existed come together and fight each other to the death. Players choose from a diverse cast of deities and use their unique powers to battle it out in 5v5 team matches. SMITE presents a new take on the MOBA genre; rather than observing from above the action, players experience the action from a third-person perspective. Instead of clicking the mouse to move, players use the familiar WASD keys to move and fight their way through SMITE’s dynamic battlegrounds. Choose your favorite deity, get into the arena, and prove who is the god of gods!
Be a God– Cut through your enemies, encase them in ice, or drown them in a vortex of souls. Assume direct control of your godlike avatar and experience the MOBA genre up close with the game camera directly behind your character. Choose from a long list of well-known and more obscure gods, each with their own history, special abilities and unique play style.
Tactical Gameplay – Master and use your godlike abilities to fulfill key roles such as damage dealer, tanking, crowd control, and support. Explore the map and defeat NPC enemies for increased gold and buffs that help both you and your allies. Then deny your opponents victory with perfectly-timed stuns and calculated ambushes.
Mythical Setting – Two teams of 5 players fight to slay the opposition’s Minotaur on an inferno-themed battlefield. But first they must contend with three flaming Phoenixes plus Cyclops NPC camps and the legendary Fire Giant in the jungle.
Power Up – Within a single match, your god levels from 1 to 20, causing your abilities to gain strength. You can purchase in-game items and consumables to benefit your god and complement your personal play style – whether it’s buffing your Magical power, Physical power, Defense or Utility capabilities.
Calculated Strikes – Every attack in SMITE is a skill shot that you control. Ranged attacks are carefully aimed, melee attacks properly positioned, and Area of Effect damage must be ground-targeted. Predict your enemies’ movements and hit your mark for maximum effect in fast-paced combat.
Free-to-Play – Everything affecting gameplay in SMITE can be earned simply by playing the game. Players have access to an initial set of playable gods for free, while additional gods are unlocked through gameplay time or more quickly through micro-transactions. Cosmetic skins can be purchased for further customization.
