Great news for fans of MOBA games as the beta registrations for Hi-Rez Studios’ upcoming game, SMITE, are now open. PC gamers can go ahead and register for the beta phase at the game’s official website. SMITE promises to be 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 inspired by DoTA (Defense of the Ancients) but instead of being above the action you are IN the action. SMITE will feature close third-person camera instead of RTS view and players will be able to move around with WASD instead of clicking on a map. The game will also feature detailed graphics and visual FX, as well as action combat, dodging, and aiming.
SMITE is currently slated for a 2012 release on the PC!
