7 Games Like Smite

Games Like Smite Our list of games like Smite features other fast paced third person multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) games for you to play.

With MOBA games on the rise Smite decided to change up the genre by shifting the usual isometric perspective into a third person one. This change has made it very popular as an alternative to the larger games in the genre and has helped it propel its player base to one of the largest.

Beyond the third person perspective Smite is your average MOBA game as players take control of their own heroes on a number of maps against an opposing team. Maps include a standard game, practice and several custom types to help keep gameplay varied. The heroes that you’ll be using for these battles in Smite are called Gods with inspiration drawn from the mythos of many ancient cultures.

The games like Smite that you’ll find below focus on other options with third person perspective gameplay or unique mechanics that are trying to break the mould of what is standard in the MOBA genre.
