The HiRez Bugle: Skins Galore and Necro Fun for Paladins

This week’s HiRez Bugle focuses on the new hotness coming to Paladins, just in time for Halloween. We’ve also got notes about the SMITE 2018 Odyssey, Bruce Buffer getting his own announcer pack, the addition of the Hindu pantheon to Hand of the Gods, and a special giveaway too!


This week, as was teased last week, SMITE updated to version 4.18, which brings in the massive new 2018 Odyssey Chapter 2 content. What could be even cooler than that? How about Bruce Buffer getting his own announcer pack? Check out the oh-so-serious trailer for the pack below. Be sure to read up on all the changes in 4.18 at the official patch notes.


This week Hand of the Gods received the Rebirth update which added the Hindu pantheon and several new neutral cards. We covered this last week, but it all bears repeating! Check out the Rebirth patch notes at the official site.


This week the Paladins Open Beta 59 patch went live on consoles bringing the champion Talus and several new skins to Xbox One and PlayStation 4. And just moments ago, we learned all about the new Halloween-themed skins coming to the game: Witch Evie, Scarecrow Mal'Damba, and Crow Strix. There will also be several accessory skins for various champions. Pip will get a new weapon skin that turns enemies into ghost chickens when he uses his ultimate, and an awesome new Deathknight mount was revealed. We’ve got a load of the new weapon skins to give away too, so check out the link below for the sweepstakes.

GIVEAWAYS has been given a limited number of gift keys for Paladins that will give players special necromancer weapons. These include Gaze of Nergal (Seris weapon skin only), Deathbringer (Zhin weapon skin only) and Eroded Oath (Lex weapon skin only). Enter for a chance to win now!

Below are the prizes available:

  • (10) Gaze of Nergal (Seris weapon skin only)
