Sneak Preview Of SMITE Update 05/23

HiRezBart streamed a preview of this weeks patch notes on the official SMITE stream yesterday and there’s some exciting stuff in the works. The developers have responded to a common request from the player base, the ability to purchase additional features using favor, the in-game currency. Complimenting the new leveling method introduced in the last patch is the debut of the rumored golden skins. The first skin to be introduced sees Zeus get a new makeover alongside several ability changes.

The new gold skins will be available at level 1 God Rank, despite many suggesting it should be a maximum level reward. More skins will be introduced over time whilst players continue to speculate over later rewards.

A preview of the full patch notes can be found below but these are subject to change before release.
