Over the past few weeks, I’ve had a mission: to find the best MOBA video games can offer. I’ve tried a healthy variety — Infinite Crisis, Dawngate, DOTA 2, Prime Worlds — and while they all have their own redeeming qualities, none have hooked me quite like Smite.
Smite is a third-person MOBA from Hi-Rez studios that, from what I’ve seen so far, takes the MOBA genre and flips it on its head. If you’re the kind of player who enjoys skill shots and playing as Thor, you should probably check this one out.
In the video above I dive a bit deeper into the world of Smite, its future in eSports and more.
