If you’ve ever fantasized about becoming a god, you’ll be happy to learn that Smite exists. In this action packed video game, you’ll get to play as gods from a wide range of pantheons spanning folklore and culture from all over the world. An Intriguing Premise
Hi-Rez Studios' action-oriented multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) casts you as a deity from the Chinese, Greek, Egyptian, Hindu, Japanese, Mayan, Norse, or Roman pantheons in a struggle for heavenly dominance. Smite is a fantastic, fast-paced PC game with a plethora of game types and an ever-expanding character pool, but frequent server problems, a lack of cross-platform play, and other drawbacks keep the game from reaching ultimate godhood. Smite is available on Windows PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
A unique take on MOBAs
Smite is a MOBA, therefore collaboration is crucial. Teammates cannot choose the same characters, although they may choose gods from the same pantheon. In other words, two Zeus’ cannot be on the same squad, yet Zeus can fight with Hades. In reality, most gods that share a pantheon get along well in battle.
In contrast to DOTA 2 and League of Legends, Smite employs a third-person, over-the-shoulder viewpoint. This puts you right in the middle of the action and forces you to target your strikes rather than pointing and clicking with the mouse. As a consequence, Smite appeals to lovers of shooting and action games since it shares gameplay and presentation aspects.
Game modes in Smite
In unranked play, players can pick from six different styles of play in Smite. Conquest, Arena, Joust, Siege, and Assault are the five static ones. The last game, Match of the Day, is a dynamically changed version of one of the previously stated modes that emerges every 24 hours with changing rules and presets to keep you guessing. Clash mode, which is presently in public beta, is an upcoming seventh mode being tested. Smite has two modes for ranked play: Conquest and 1 v 1 Joust.
Conquest is the main mode in Smite. It's a 5 v 5 battle with three lanes each including two towers and a phoenix to guard a team's Titan. The goal is straightforward: push the lanes and destroy the opposing Titan while defending your own.
Smite is playable on a broad variety of PCs due to the minimum and recommended system requirements. Smite recognizes your system requirements and changes the settings accordingly, however the graphics are sometimes underwhelming.
Fortunately, you may change a variety of graphic options, such as texture quality, motion blur, and anti-aliasing. Smite beta for Mac is also available through Hi-Rez Studios.
Smite has been dubbed "the MOBA for folks who despise MOBAs." I totally concur. Those who aren't fascinated by typical MOBA mechanics will find the speed and viewpoint, as well as the controls, appealing. Smite's basic gameplay mechanics and balance, on the other hand, are appealing to MOBA fans. Smite has some frequent server difficulties, and the skin/gem system is irritating, but the game remains one of the greatest examples of the genre.
