Hercules Joins SMITE

Hi-Rez Studios announced today that one of the most recognized heroes during the age of bronze will be making an appearance in their free-to-play MOBA game, SMITE. To help get players in the mood to take on one of the most recognized and celebrated heroes throughout the ages, Hi-Rez released a brand new video to showcase the skills and abilities of one of the mightiest heroes of Earth.

The video from Hi-Rez is a five minute rundown of all of Hercules' skills, abilities and tactical fighting abilities. It's a great showcase of what you get with the character, what the character is capable of, and how to use him in an effective manner where you aren't Rambo'ing through the lanes but working as a cohesive unit with your teammates. Check it out.

You might remember some time back that SMITE came under the eye scrutiny for some religious groups based on the depiction of some gods in the game. Hi-Rez quickly did what they could to dampen the PR blow and now things are back on track and they're pumping out content like it's nobody's business.

Other than the aforementioned controversy, you don't hear much about SMITE as a MOBA title. Then again, it could be that gamers are too busy actually playing the game or it's just not as rage-worthy as other titles like League of Legends or Defense of the Ancients? Anyway, you can join in on the action right now, for free, by signing up or learning more by paying a visit to the game's official website.
