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.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
