Today, Hi-Rez Games launched SMITE update 4.21, introducing the game's newest adventure, "Shadows Over Hercopolis". Reportedly, the most ambitious in SMITE's development history, the adventure brings a bit of RPG fun to the game.

Hercules is missing and it's going to take a team of gods to find and rescue him. Shadows of Hercopolis is a co-op adventure that combines all the best elements of RPG games with SMITE's combat. It features raid-style bosses, puzzles, traps, and a story that allows players to explore locations from Norse mythology.

There will be three epic boss battles, including one in which players aboard a sinking ship fight a giant sea monster. In the end, players will have to confront the trickster god Loki in order to rescue Hercules.

The event -- as well as the rest of the update -- is live on the SMITE servers. For more information on how to participate in the community challenges for this adventure, check out the official post on the SMITE site. If you'd like to read more about the entire update, be sure to hit up the patch notes there as well.
