The Summer of SMITE events have become really popular annual events for players of the god-focused MOBA, and 2017’s edition should be no different, coming alongside a bunch of other additions and updates in the Mid-Season Patch. The gods are hitting the beach this year and have brought a bunch of new skins along with them including a 50s flavour Da Ji, and a Twi-Lek style skin for Freya alongside a bunch of others. Additionally you can enjoy a host of souvenirs and unique quests to collect all eight summer skins, eventually unlocking a limited skin that will be unique to the event.
At DreamHack Valencia last week Hi-Rez announced Project Olympus, a series of significant patches to SMITE that should vastly improve the in-game experience. The first stage of this is also kicking off at the minute, with a long-term goal of pushing progress in engine improvements, console quality of life updates, prestige, wisdom tab updates and more. Full details are available for Project Olympus on the official site.
Finally we’ve had a recent tease for the next roster addition, in the shape of Artio the Bear Goddess. This Celtic deity was also premiered at DreamHack Valencia and we should be seeing her very soon.
