Hi-Rez Studios’ god-centric third-person shooter/MOBA hybrid Smite has finally launched, and in celebration, there’s a cinematic teaser trailer showing off a few of the gods.
Smite pits teams of deities – pulled from a variety of mythologies – against each other in MOBA-style battles, with the big difference being that you control your chosen god directly from a third-person perspective. There’s as much of an emphasis on careful aiming, dodging, and circle-strafing as there is on tactics and buying the right items.
I’ve been playing Smite quite a lot over the past few days, and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying myself. I’ll be writing something about it before too long, but if you want to try it for yourself, you can sign up for free over on the official website.
