Olympus Second Phase Rolls Out with Goddess Artio - MMORPG.com

The second phase of the Olympus overhaul to SMITE has been deployed. Olympus is a multi-phase series of updates that will significantly improve the game from a technical standpoint as well as nearly every system being visited to make a more streamlined experience for players.

In today's update "Ranked Fresh", players will find:

  • Fantasy Points Gifting — Player can now gift a portion of their earned FP to another player that they think deserves recognition.
  • Pre-God Selection \ Ban Selection — Introducing a new match lobby state for both PC and console that allows players to “call out” the god they would like to play and a ban they would like the leader to make.
  • Console Ranked Leaderboard has improved presentation for better readability.
  • God Leaderboards will add a score to help players understand the sorting.
  • Ranked Placements will add a new "targeting" division that shows the player for matchmaking purposes where they are being rated.
  • Buff Timer Update — mini-map will now show time remaining on buffs.
  • Minion count will be added to to towers.

In addition, Artio, the Bear Goddess is heading into the game. You can get a look at her abilities and her preview in the video below.

The team will be on hand later today in the SMITE Twitch channel to provide a preview stream of all the changes in the current update. Tune in at 1:00 pm Pacific / 4:00 pm Eastern.
