I suppose the pairing was inevitable. I mean, A god that rides around on a tree, and the world’s chillest painter of “happy little trees”… We all knew there’d eventually be something coming out of that. Right?

Okay, so I didn’t think of it either, but now that I’ve seen it, the new Bob Ross Sylvanus skin (as well as loading frame and jump stamp) make perfect sense. Hi-Rez announced the new skin for the SMITE god this week, along with release dates of May 9th for PC and May 16th for consoles.

Just in case you might be wondering what Bob Ross’ people think of the whole thing; they seem pretty excited by it.

    Chill AF? What? And who are Bob Ross’ people? I think its pretty low in any case to use him to promote your game.

      “Each bundle item was created by the SMITE development team in close partnership with Twitch and the Bob Ross® estate. This bundle is our tribute to the greatness of Bob Ross® – undeniably one of the true Gods of painting. ” It was a partnership with smite and the Bob Ross Estate. as they said they actually got permission to make this from them. They can’t do this without their permission. So relax.

        obviously they got permission, i didnt argue about that. but its still someone else deciding what Bob Ross would have wanted and its still a company putting a dead mans face on their product to promote it.
