Hi-Rez Studios has released the latest patch for Smite, a MOBA that pits gods of legend and lore against each other in glorious PVP. The console patch 4.12 throws in a few new features and fixes, and we have the low-down as follows:
New features in the patch include a notification pop-up if a player attempts to go to the play menu without first choosing a quest. The feature will only display if there’s a selection available, and it can be opted out of if desired. Additionally, the patch introduces the Auto Run – just hold left on the D-pad to initiate.
Apart from technical features, Smite’s latest patch also brings in a lineup of fresh skins, including Beamy Chiba Ra, Heaven’s Arrow Hou Yi, Venus Aphrodite, Bloodthirsty Izanami, and Elevate Ares. Top it off with the Dance Izanami emote and the Elevate Ward.
Church Blessings have been updated for the ‘Trials of King Hercules’ Adventure, with Blessing of Might increasing to 40% extra Damage, and Blessing of Protection bringing 40% extra Damage Reduction.Athena’s Reach has increased in Magic Power Scaling to 15% to improve her status as a Guardian, whether she’s used as support or as attack. A description error for Reach has also been resolved.
Last but not least, Smite 4.12 squashes a few gameplay bugs.
An issue with the Stone of Binding where certain Banishes failed to trigger it was resolved.
Sun Wukon’s Somersault Cloud and Xing Tian’s Sky Cutting Axe have had their descriptions updated with abilities’ correct radii.
