Official description
SMITE is an online battleground between gods. Players choose from a selection of gods, join session-based arena combat and use custom powers and team tactics against other players and minions. SMITE is inspired by Defense of the Ancients (DotA) but instead of being above the action, the third-person camera brings you right into the combat. And, instead of clicking a map, you use WASD to move, dodge, and fight your way through the detailed graphics of SMITE´s battlegrounds.

KEY FEATURES

Be a God
Cut through your enemies, encase them in ice, or drown them in a vortex of souls. Choose from a long list of powerful gods, each with their own history, special abilities, and unique playstyle.

3D Graphics and Fast Action
SMITE is a an online 3D action game. Experience the MOBA genre up close with the game camera directly behind your character. All attacks are skill shots controlled by you. Predict your enemies' movements and hit your mark as you experience fast-paced combat.

Mythical Setting
Explore multiple game-modes and maps - each themed around a legendary battleground. Fight opposing players, minions, towers, and NPCs including flaming Phoenixes, Cyclops, Harpies, and the Fire Giant.

Tactical Gameplay
Master your abilities, build your items, and fulfill key roles such as assassin, mage, tank, and support. Defeat NPC enemies for increased gold and stat buffs. Deny your opponents' victory with well-placed stuns and calculated ambushes.

Free-to-Play
Players have immediate access to 10 playable gods for free. Five gods are permanently free with five additional gods on rotation. Additional gods are unlocked through gameplay time or more quickly through micro-transactions. Cosmetic skins can be purchased for further god customization.

Differences from usual MOBA involve:
* No activatable non-consumable items.
* No minion controlling.
* 3rd person perspective instead of top-down.
