SMITE is an online battleground between gods. SMITE is similar to a traditional Dota gameplay with a few changes including 3D graphics, third person perspective, movement with the WASD keys like an MMO, and aimed skill-shots for more action. Players choose from a selection of gods, join session based 5 versus 5 combat, and use custom powers and team tactics against other players and minions.
GEMS are the in-game currency that you can purchase from outside the game and use for microtransactions. Gems are used to instantly unlock new playable gods as well as cosmetic skins in the future.
