Hi-Rez Studios today announced an exciting weekend event for Friday May 23rd to Monday May 26th, with the SMITE double favor rewards event. Beginning today all SMITE players will be treated to double favor rewards across all game modes.

Accompanying the free boost of  favor is also an opportunity to get some free Gems, SMITE’s premium currency. Every First Win of the Day bonus this weekend will also reward players with 10 bonus Gems. With the entire weekend and more game modes than ever, there’s easily enough to snap up a skin for your favorite God before the event is over.

The event was launched to celebrate what promises to be one of the most exciting announcements in the history of SMITE. The developers have promised an announcement revealing “massive amounts of new content” later today on the official SMITE channel. Stay tuned between 1PM EST and 7PM EST for additional information and reveals.
