SMITE is getting a new patch this week and with it brings a new god, new skins and the coolest looking tier 5 skin to be released in the game yet.  

First up is Nike "Goddess of Victory", who also has the honor of being the first Greek Warrior in the game. Nike also has one of the most ridiculous passives in the history of SMITE which I am fully expecting to get nerfed into the ground in the coming months. Her passive is called "To Victory" and here is what it does...

  • Nike sets three goals that the team can achieve to gain increased strength. Upon completing a goal, Nike’s team gains a Laurel that increases Power (+8/10/12%) and Movement Speed (+3/5/7%). This Laurel can increase up to 3 times.
  • Goal 1: Elimitate 10 gods as a team
  • Goal 2: Eliminate 200 Minions as a team
  • Goal 3: At least two allies are level 20

That's just.... wow. Regardless, it's nice to finally have the long awaited Greek Warrior so all of the original Pantheons are now complete. 

Also, the last of the Odyssey items are being added to the game and include the following... 

  • "Chilling Grasp" Ah Puch
  • "Jurassic" Camazotz 
  • "Chaac" announcer pack 

We also got the big reveal for "Demonic Pact" Anubis, this years Tier 5 Odyssey skin. The Tier 5 Odyssey skins are extremely rare skins which can only be obtained by completing the Odyssey, or in the case of this year, earning enough points to unlock the skin. Once the Odyssey event is over, these skins will NEVER be available ever again. The Demonic Pact skin includes the following features. Seriously, this skin is amazing and the sky catches when you activate your ultimate once you reach level 15.

  • 4 Unique Models for each form
  • 4 Unique sets of FX for each ability
  • 4 Unique Voice Packs for each form
  • Custom Recall FX
  • Custom Music Pack
  • Custom Emote
  • And tons of hidden features such as the Final Form Ultimate changing the entire maps skybox!

Finally, Bacchus and Ares get their updated mastery skins. 

Hi-Rez also announced that this years SMITE World Championship will be presented by Twitch Prime and will be taking place at the Hi-Rez Expo from January 5th - January 8th.
