SMITE: Demigods, Deities and Gods Explained

SMITE: Demigods, Deities and Gods Explained is a new column dedicated to introducing prospective players of SMITE to its massive back story of lore. From the Greek to Hindu, each week we’ll look at two characters from a major pantheon and provide a quick recap of their history and in what capacity their digital incarnation will represent on the field of Hi-Rez Studios upcoming MOBA.

SMITE isn’t just another DotA knockoff. The developers at Hi-Rez Studios has put its own massive spin on the genre, aside from cherry picking from earlier legendary lore. The title will be familiar, featuring lane pushing, towers, creeping, item building and personal spell selection. The major change is the camera. The camera will not be presented in the typical isometric view, like most MOBA games, but locked behind your player in a third-person perspective. This allows for complete ganks – no need for weeds to “hide” in – forcing players to keep tabs on blind spots and use them to their advantage.

The full list of characters and their titles are after the jump along with a video interview by iTZKooPA with a more comprehensive introduction to the title from COO Todd Harris.

New additions to come every Tuesday and Thursday.










  1. Been playing the beta for around a week and absolutley loving it.
    The change from ‘normal’ MOBA’s iso-cam puts a more personal spin on the genre and makes you feel more connected to the action.

    Been playing Bastet for a while and enjoying her very much, considering I usually play exclusively ranged characters in MOBA’s.

    Havent posted anything here for ages. Been busy with other things here and there, but It’s great to see the site still going strong.
    Keep up the great work peeps!
