Hi-Rez Studios is getting into the multiplayer online battle arena scene with SMITE. The game was announced earlier this year, but we're only now getting our first real look at it. Various gods spanning multiple mythologies are all out to get each other, apparently. Fairly cool premise, given the genre.
The full reveal of SMITE will happen at gamescom, which kicks off on August 17. What's more, Hi-Rez is going to have Tribes: Ascend playable; for those not attending QuakeCon 2011, this will be your first public chance to try out the game's multiplayer.
