Hi-Rez Studios recently revealed their latest God in SMITE: Osiris, Broken God of the Afterlife. His passive is to be fragmented, and each ability used will consume one of the fragments of his bodies until he walks through his enemies in spirit form. Osiris will cut down his opponents with a sickle and a flail. He'll also tether them in his mummy wraps and shed his fragments to leap at the lowest health god while ripping a fragment of its spirit.
SMITE, a game of gods and glory, features a full pantheon of deities. Among them is Bastet, a goddess who Hi-Rez Studios believed to need a full visual overhaul and more. Shedding her historical appearance as a slender black cat, she adorns a fleshy peach color instead.
Including almost two minutes of lore, Hi-Rez Studios gives a complete overview:
Hi-Rez Studios recently revealed their latest God in SMITE: Scylla, Horror of the Deep. As a passively quick learner her abilities are more potent at their maximum rank. She also has the ability to sic her hounds on opponents, detonate a magical field of power, utilize a sentinel to enhance her vision of enemies and briefly become immune to crowd control.
Ancient poems warn of a narrow channel of water so treacherous that death touches all who approach. Sailors must choose to risk their ship, traveling close to the monstrous whirlpool Charybdis, or instead hug the rocky shoals where dwells a creature some say is made from the nightmares of all men.
Scylla, they call her, Horror of the Sea. No ship that dares sail in her waters goes unscathed. Those that cling to survival whisper panicked tales of enormous black tentacles tipped with slavering hound heads ravaging whole ships to splinters with pitiless precision. Though it’s her laughter, they say, that’s most horrible; child-like, delighting in blood soaked murder as men are dragged into the dark abyss.
SMITE's recent update had some changes to the God of Fire, Agni. His animation, model, 2D art and FX were updated, as well as the inclusion of a timer to indicate when your next meteor is available to use. This patch included a lot of other changes and the full update notes can be read at the official site.
It's time for another entrant to the battlefield of SMITE: Zhong Kui, The Demon Queller.
Not exactly the most aesthetically appealing chap, Zhong Kui went from being shunned, due to his appearance, to having his visage plastered across establishments in order to ward off demons.
Like a godly Ghostbuster, Zhong Kui brings strong utility to the lanes with slows and damage that, in one instance, can chase down a target forever.
Smite has undergone a few major visual changes with its latest game update, to better fit the more recent visual and art direction developments of the game. Additionally, new character skins, voice over dialogue and item changes have made their way with this patch as well. To show off some of the most recent changes, Hi-Rez has gifted us with this video highlighting exactly what players can expect to see change, take a look!
"We better not risk a frontal assault, that rabbit's dynamite!"
The newest entrant to SMITE's pantheon is the forlorn Faerie of the Moon, Chang'e. This twice-made goddess lives an eternity in enforced estrangement from her husband due to a falling out with the Jade Emperor.
She hopes to save the Earth and earn her way to reuniting with her love.
