Latest SMITE God Revealed – Thanatos
Hi-Rez Studios today released the latest update for their critically acclaimed free-to-play MOBA game, SMITE. The popular developers continue to update SMITE despite recent concerns that the game may be on the decline; concerns that were soon quashed by a developer post on Reddit.
The latest update introduces a variety of exciting new content to SMITE including new Gold Skins, additional voice packs and a brand new God, Thanatos. Thanatos is a physical assassins that specializes in dealing direct damage to opponents at the cost of HP.
Personally, I’m most excited about the potential of the new ranking system and game mode. Players now have ranks before the first mastery rank after they obtain 10, 25 and 50 Worshipers with a God. Once you earn 50 Worshipers with a single God you achieve Adept rank. This rank allows players to queue for a new time of game mode that features solo-player conquest queues with restrictions based on your total number of God’s with the Adept rank. Only once you’ve got 12 God’s with 50 Worshipers can you participate in this mode, and then you’re only able to select from those God’s.
This should stop players ruining competitive play when they should be practicing. For more information on the latest SMITE patch, click here.
