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.
The $100,000 SMITE Launch Tournament will take place on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 March 2014 in Atlanta, Georgia front of a live audience. The tournament will include the top four teams in Europe and the top four in North America who will have qualified from the SMITE Weekly Tournament Series beginning on 4 January 2014.
Hi-Rez Studios' mythology-themed free to play 3D action MOBA game has accrued over 2,500,000 registered players to date through its extended Open Beta phase.
All player progress in SMITE’s Open Beta will carry over to the game’s general release. Also, all Beta players who reach level 30 before the launch date will unlock the Cacodemon skin for the playable god Ymir.
