What is SMITE?
SMITE is one of the more recent freemium MOBA games to enter the fray. In SMITE you don’t choose a character; you choose a God. You’ll instantly feel an attachment to characters like Thor and Zeus because even if you don’t know the lore behind them but you’ve at least heard their names before!
What makes SMITE so immersive is Hi-Rez Studios’ inclusion of historical lore into the gods’ abilities, kits, and play styles. Thor and Loki aren’t just characters from Marvel comics and movies. They’re also a part of Norse mythology and you can take control of them in SMITE!
What makes SMITE different?
SMITE takes all of the strategy of the top MOBA games and adds another layer of difficulty by putting you into the action!
Unlike most MOBA games, SMITE offers players the chance to experience the MOBA genre they know and love from a third-person perspective. This unique perspective allows for an extremely immersive experience unlike any other game in the genre. While this doesn’t sound like such a big change, once you play it you’ll understand! All of these things added together is what has gaming websites everywhere continually rating SMITE as one of the best MOBA games available!
SMITE has $1 million dollar prize pools!
The game has multiple PvP modes, many playable characters, and has a successful esports scene with multiple tournaments, including the annual Smite World Championship which has a large US$1 million dollar prize pool. Kids as young as 16 years old have managed to make millions in endorsements for being a sponsored smite player.
