It's patch time! SMITE is getting a new one soon and this one brings with it tons of goodies including the brand new arena map, tons of skins, and Nox's complete kit reworking.
First up is the brand new Nox, who is getting a complete kit design, meaning she is going to become a completely new character than she was before. Her passive, which used to give her damage mitigation, will now give her magical power. She also has an amazing new ability that allows her to jump into friendly gods for a short time. This means that if she is in danger, she can jump into a friendly god like Athena, Thor, or others with great escapes and ride with them.
Here is a rundown of her brand new kit...
This patch also brings with it a bunch of brand new skins including "Triumph and Agni" Agni. This skin can only be obtained when you play for 30 hours with a friend that you have referred to the game. Unfortunately, time so far doesn't count, so as soon as the patch is released, you gotta start playing with a friend if you want the skin.
Next up is "Bizzy B" Cupid. Cupid gets a cute bee skin and this skin is also part of the Summer of SMITE promotion. Buying this skin will earn you a free roll for other god skins, voice packs, and other goodies. Buying this skin will also bring you closer to getting some of the free Summer of SMITE rewards that can only be obtained by owning a certain number of items.
Next up is two new "Tier 2" skins with "Crimson Death" Kali and "Heavenly Warlord" Sun Wukong.
The gold skins are also getting a bit of an upgrade. Up until now, all of the gold skins basically turned the entire god gold and blue. Bellona and Anubis are getting gold skins in this game but now only the clothing of the characters will be gold and blue. Their skin will remain the same. I am very excited about this as this is something that the community has wanted for quite some time. Hi-Rez says that the older gold skins will be updated in time.
Finally, the brand new arena map will be released which features a full visual upgrade of the arena itself and features new buff creatures.
On the Xbox One side of things, they will be getting the Ah Puch patch featuring the new god Ah Puch, the e-sports fantasy game, Kawai Pop Bastet and the e-sports chests.
