SMITE is a free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena from Hi-Rez Studios that allows players to choose from a selection of deity-inspired heroes. Instead of classic, RTS-style MOBA gameplay, SMITE features skill-based third-person combat with a feel more close to MMO PvP. Players can participate in session-based arena combat and use custom powers and team tactics against other player-controlled heroes and non-player controlled minions.
The latest god to join the SMITE pantheon has arrived in the form of Kuzenbo, king of the kappa. Hi-Rez has put together a new trailer to give a bit of Kuzenbo's legend in mythology as well as a great look at the skills and abilities that he brings to bear in SMITE.
During this week's Hi-Rez Expo, it was revealed that the next SMITE god to join the game is none other than The Morrigan, the Phantom Queen. She will be joining the fray after the deployment of patch 3.25.
Nike, the goddess of victory, has been added to the ever-growing pantheon in SMITE. Nike is a support hero who can buff the entire team based on the number of victories achieved throughout the match.
The holidays have arrived in SMITE with the addition of Fafnir's Wonderland, a way for players to take part in fifteen new encounters in both easy and hard modes. Each version has its own rules and requirements for completion. There is a new Fafnir's Wonderland achievement to be earned as well as Odyssey Points and the Cutesy Avatar Chest roll at the fifth tier.
SMITE has been updated with the Arbiter of the Damned content expansion that brings the Egyptian god Thoth to the game. The patch also brings a number of new skins for the SMITE 2017 Odyssey and the 2017 SWC Digital Loot Pack that comes with skins, effects and emotes.
