More about Third-Person MOBA Games

One of the first games of this kind to be released was Smite that came out in 2014 and caught a lot of attention when it was introduced as a MOBA game in a third-person player perspective. Its unique gameplay featured the battles between mythical gods and goddesses as heroes and champions. Each of these celestial figures possesses abilities the players must control and use to win the game. Similar to other MOBA games, it has multiple PVP modes. This over-the-shoulder perspective completely changes the feeling of the game, as it becomes something more than a simple MOBA. From the first look at gameplay, a spectator may think it's a fantasy RPG game.

The essence of this kind of games is like in all of the other MOBA games - each team have to choose five heroes, level them up, collect items and eliminate enemy base towers while defending the nexus. There are lanes, towers, minions, game mods, abilities, and other essential features. Participants level up by killing enemy heroes, minions, and by destroying enemy towers.

Unlike other MOBAs played with the top-down camera and a classic auto-attack, Third-person MOBA Games require to develop skills, quick reflexes, proper space orientation, aiming and ability usage. It wouldn't be enough to look at the opponent's direction, but think ahead and anticipate their movement would also be crucial.
