Hi-Rez Studios is holding a special promotion this weekend for their free-to-play MOBA, Smite. This Saturday and Sunday (the 31st and the 1st), any player who logs into Smite will have the full roster of gods and goddesses available to them, regardless of rank or previous purchases. With over fifty gods from Greek, Chinese, Roman, Mayan, Egyptian, Norse, and Hindu pantheons, players who have yet to check out Smite won’t want to pass up this opportunity.
This weekend promotion follows the recent release of the Roman god, Janus, into the game. As the fifty-fourth god to be introduced into Smite, Janus brings with him the unique ability to create portals through the game’s maps, allowing himself and team members to quickly traverse through otherwise solid obstacles. Hi-Rez Studios typically will release a new god every two to three weeks. The god before Janus, the Egyptian god Osiris, released on May 12th.
Earlier this year we put together a great beginner’s guide/walkthrough to help new players quickly find their bearings within the game. While fifty-four gods may seem like a daunting amount to select from, brand new players to Smite would be wise to first try out some of the more easier to play gods, like Thor, Ymir, Neith, or Anhur.
Be sure to check out Smite while the full roster of gods is available to you this weekend.
