'Smite' To Add New Arena Mode To Beta

by Rainier on Nov. 1, 2012 @ 6:45 p.m. PDT

Smite is a free-to-play online battleground between gods where players choose from a selection of mythical gods, join session-based arena combat, and use custom powers and team tactics against other player-controlled gods and non-player controlled minions.

SMITE is an online battleground between mythical gods.  SMITE is similar to DotA games but with a few significant changes including a third-person perspective and WASD movement.  Players choose from a selection of gods, join session based 5 versus 5 arena combat, and use custom powers and team tactics against other players and minions.  

Arena is played 5 versus 5 with minions and side-objectives including buff camps and Gryphon Guardians. But rather than a single end objective, in Arena your team earns points for killing enemy players and minions with the first team to deduct 500 points from their opponents being crowned the winner.

"SMITE is all about action combat", says Hi-Rez Studios Chief Operating Officer Todd Harris. "So we wanted an additional game type that allows players to get into the action even faster. One of our level designers took the initiative to put together this more open Colosseum map concept on his own time. We've enjoyed playing it so much that the team has worked overtime to get the new mode quickly into the hands of our Beta community and we look forward to their feedback."

Players interested in joining the SMITE Beta can register at the official website.
