SMITE is making the jump from PC to comics as Dark Horse has announced that SMITE: The Pantheon War, will be available in December and tells a three part story of a looming war between the pantheons.
It is an age where gods live among the mortals over which they rule. The worship of mortals is needed by the gods to maintain their divinity—but the number of gods has swelled, and there are fewer mortal faithful for the individual gods in each pantheon. Only the gods who maintain worshipers will survive, and so tensions are rising among the pantheons. There is an uneasy peace…but peace is not desired by al
I am pretty excited about this as I adore SMITE and it's nice to see it branching out into other forms of entertainment. In game, SMITE doesn't really have any story so this will be fun to read to see what kind of story they can come up with as to why all these pantheons are fighting with each other. Another great example of comic book tie ins that I can think of are Udon's incredible Street Fighter comic series that is currently running. Technically they may not be canon, but as far as I'm concerned they are since you will get way more story with those than you do in the actual Street Fighter games.
