Smite is a multiplayer online battle arena game (MOBA) that is being developed by Hi-Rez studios; the makers of Tribes Ascend and Global Agenda. What differentiates Smite from other MOBA's such as League of Legends or Heroes of Newerth is the perspective. Smite takes place at ground level through a 3rd person view. Smite utilizes the Unreal Engine which provides amazing visuals and offers fast paced skill based combat. Combat in SMITE is action/skill based meaning that each attack must be aimed, movement is controlled similar to that of a first person shooter game.
The best part about SMITE is that it's absolutely FREE! SMITE is free to play, not pay to win. While you can spend real money in game it doesn't afford you any advantages over a non paying player. Head on over to the account sign up page to create your free account.

Tips & Tricks
Respect the Minions
Minions in Smite are not trash mobs, they hit hard! Also remember that enemy minion waves will only target you if: A) You attack an enemy god in their presence. B) You are the only target available.
Respect the Towers
Repeat after me... "I will not tower dive". Towers also hit hard and each hit will do more damage than the last. The towers will target the first enemy to breach the perimeter. The tower will only target you if: A) You attack an enemy god in range of the tower B) You are the only target available.
Minions aren't worth your Mana
In the early game, save your mana for use against enemy gods. Do not waste it pushing the minion wave. It does little to no good to rush to the enemy tower when you're level 2.
There are times when an enemy god will escape with a smidgen of health. You will be tempted to chase him through the jungle, minion waves, and towers. Don't do it, it's a trap!
Let the game flow, don't try and force a kill by being overly aggressive. Wait for your chance to strike.
