Season 8 Digital Loot Pack
Live with the TRANSFORMERS Update, this year’s Digital Look Pack celebrates Season 8 and the upcoming SMITE World Championship. The bundle unlocks new Exclusive skins for Cernunnos, Morgan Le Fay, and Gilgamesh, plus Pittsburgh Knights Scylla, a tribute to 2021 World Champions.
One of the highest value bundles in SMITE, the Digital Look Pack, can be purchased in the in-game store.
God Rework – Bastet
SMITE’s Egyptian Goddess of cats Bastet has undergone substantial gameplay changes in the TRANSFORMERS Update.
With a brand-new ultimate, Bastet now summons a Huntress of Bast to pick up her target and drop them at her feet in true feline fashion. This makes Bastet a potential team-fight initiator, although she can also use her ultimate to hunt and kill isolated prey, as suits an Assassin.
Also new is a quality of life upgrade to her passive ability. Now called ‘Nightstalker’, it allows Bastet to reveal any enemy she attacks, ensuring they struggle to escape from her sights once engaged.
Save The Date – The SMITE World Championship, the pinnacle of this year’s eSports action, will be held from January 7-9, 2022. Plus on January 6, the Hi-Rez Showcase will feature the biggest announcements and celebrations around SMITE and the other Hi-Rez games. More details can be found here.
