Meet the Champions
We only had a chance to check out a few of the Smite's playable characters, but we've gathered images of some of the other ones to give you an idea as to what High-Rez Studios has planned for the game's style.
Odin (pictured slapping a Cyclops in the face) is a DPS/tank hybrid. He has a passive ability that reveals a big chunk of the minimap, a lunge, a shout, and a wall of spears. Oh, and he's FREAKING ODIN.
He's some kind of dragon snake thing, and we absolutely love his design.
Ra is the sun god. So... yeah, good luck, everyone else. He has a celestial beam, which is essentially a giant laser, and an area-of-effect flashbang that blinds opponents. His ultimate attack is an even bigger laser that goes through enemies. He really shines in group battles. Yes, pun intended.
Arachne is your friendly neighborhood spider queen. We're going to guess that her skills include poison and throwing web on enemies, but we didn't actually see her in action.
We have no idea what's going on in this picture, but we sort of like it anyway.
Kali has a buff here, you can tell because there's a rune above her head. The head she's carrying isn't a buff, though - that's just how she rolls.
Ymir is an ice giant, and he hits like a freaking truck. All of his moves are ice-based, from his ice-wall to his ice-cone to his frontal frost trap.
