New SMITE Character Revealed: Odin
Hi-Rez Studios, the company behind Global Agenda and developing Tribes: Ascend, revealed that the next playable god within SMITE will be Odin, pictured in the detailed render above.
The ruler of Asgard and the father god of Norse mythology will join the ranks of deities that battle it out DoTA-style in the upcoming Multiplayer Online Battle Arena, SMITE.
With the MOBA genre booming, SMITE has to fight an uphill battle to stand alongside the big names like League of Legends and Heroes of Newerth. Its use of a 3rd person camera rather than the traditional top down view is a start, and the inclusion of advanced visuals thanks to the Unreal 3 engine will certainly help, but that’s all frosting — how will the gameplay shape up?
