Tyr, the Lawgiver enters the SMITE arena
Hi-Rez Studios revealed Tyr, the Lawgiver for SMITE.
Tyr is the embodiment of mankind's impossible ideals and is seen as a pinnacle of righteousness. He is courage, he is honor, he is justice. He is a heavy melee class with the ability to switch between assault and defense stances, and he can combine the stances to perform interesting combos.
SMITE is a third-person multiplayer online battle arena(MOBA) that is free to play and currently in its beta stage. The game was originally slated for a Q2/Q3 release this year, and the beta released Jan. 2013. It focuses on various mythologies and allows players to enter the arena as various gods.
An interesting point of gameplay for SMITE is all attacks in the game are calculated. This means that ranged attacks must be aimed, melee attacks must be guided and ground attacks must be pointed toward the ground.

I absolutely love Smite. I hate MOBAs but the third person perspective makes it awesome. Add me MaximuPrime24 ;)
I play Smite a little. It's not bad. It's kind of fun for a third person MOBA besides being an overhead view like all other MOBAs.
