The gods are currently not in a good mood in Smite. They are in the midst of a bitter struggle over the distribution of power in their mythical realm.
Smite is a reinterpretation of the classic MOBA (massively online battle arena). In as style similar to DoTA 2 and League of Legends, players get to battle it out against each other in 5 vs 5 matches. Why is it a reinterpretation of the MOBA genre then? Well, in Smite, you control your avatar with the WASD controls in a third-person point of view. In other words, while the presentation of the online game is completely different, the core gameplay remains the same. In individual matches you fight with and against other players, with this eternal struggle between the gods as the backdrop for your epic battles. Among the roster of gods to choose from are Anubis, Bacchus, Hades, Odin and a veritable slew of others.
Luckily you needn’t only rely on your strategic tact to win your battles, as you also have powerful spells and special attacks at your disposal, each unique to individual gods. Naturally in such a massive war, you won’t be fighting with only gods at your sides and against you, but also among hordes of minions, banded together to support either side of the fight. Don’t underestimate them though, for especially early on in any given match, their power when banded together might be enough to turn the tides of the mighty struggle for whichever side takes them for granted.
The MOBA developed by Hi-Rez Studios is without a doubt heavily influenced by other DotA titles. Nevertheless, as with most new games, there are a few intricacies which set this game apart from the rest. The first of which is the implementation of the Unreal 3 Engine, giving the game unparalleled graphics. Additionally, rather than looking down on the battle from above, you are right in the middle of it with a third-person camera perspective and the traditional controls of FPS and other action PC games rather than clicking around on the map and the area within your view.
