DescriptionSMITE is a free-to-play MOBA with gameplay very similar to games like Heroes of Newerth, League of Legends and Dota 2. In Smite, players control gods from all kinds of religions: Greek, Roman, Chinese, Egyptian, Norse, Hindu, Mayan, Japanese and Celtic gods.
SMITE is a typical MOBA where in the main mode Conquest, there are two teams of five players, both having a base on the corners of the map. Each base has three paths leading to it, which must all be defended in order to halt the approaching enemies. After a very short time, AI-controlled minions start spawning and following all three paths. These minions serve as support for the players, mainly used as cannon fodder for pushing the enemy towers.
All three paths are defended by two towers and a phoenix, which must be destroyed in order to advance to the enemy base and let ally minions through. After a team has pushed through one of more lanes, the enemy titan has to be killed in order to win the game. Between these set paths is a so called jungle, where visibility is a lot lower and several buff camps are located. These jungles can be used to quickly switch lanes and flank enemies. Or help out teammates where needed.
Aside from Conquest, SMITE also has the modes: Arena, which features no lanes; Siege, which features two lanes; Clash, which features two lanes but with a much smaller jungle than Siege; Assault, which features one lane with randomly selected gods; Joust, with one lane but being able to choose a god yourself; and a Match of the Day which switches game type, gods and conditions daily. Aside from this multiplayer modes, there's also the tutorials, a practice mode with other players against bots, and the ability to start custom games. In-game events called adventures mostly feature a new temporary mode. In the past these were Mario-style racing with carts, Capture the Flag, an RPG like PVE mode, and a Corrupted Arena, the Arena game mode but with the map gradually changing during the game.
All players start with a base pool of gold, of which the amount varies per game mode. This gold can be used for buying items for the current battle. More gold is earned over time, and by killing enemies and enemy minions. Players also gain exp with kills and destroying towers and phoenixes. This exp is used to upgrade the four skills of the god. As with all other MOBA's, skill progression and bought items reset upon the end of the game. So every new game you'd have to start from scratch.
Unlike most MOBA's with their isometric views, this game uses a third-person view. Also, instead of using the mouse to move the character, this game features the WASD keys for moving the character.
