SMITE God Reveal: Osiris

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 God Update: Bastet

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.

SMITE God Reveal: Scylla, Horror of the Deep

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 Releases Agni Update

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.

SMITE $20,000 PAX Tournament

It's time for another entrant to the battlefield of SMITEZhong 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.
