Summer is here, and that means two things... SMITE's mid-season patch has arrived and the Summer of SMITE event is upon us.
SMITE's mid-season update (or Patch 4.13) introduces a slew of new skins, emotes, and avatars to the game -- including a kaiju-film inspired Kuzenbo skin and a Jedi-inspired Freya skin.
There's even a really slick 1950s inspired pinup-style skin for Da Ji.
Now's probably a good time to pick up those skins too, because Hi-Rez just kicked off the Summer of SMITE. This event offers players the chance to choose a souvenir from the in-game shop when buying a skin which they can then unlock by completing two specific quests. There will be 7 souvenirs in all. Full details are available on the Summer of Smite page.
While the skins and event are the big fun items arriving with Patch 4.13, they're probably not the biggest thing. This patch also kicks off Project Olympus -- Hi-Rez's effort to make big improvements to the game. Project Olympus is addressing graphical engine updates starting with the launch of the DirectX 11 beta. Yes, DirectX 11 is coming to SMITE. Details on how players can participate in the beta are available in the patch notes.
Also being addressed with the graphical engine updates are the release of a high resolution texture pack, the addition of resolution scaling, and the chance to help test the new 64-bit client. Once again, details on how to take part in all of this is available in the patch notes.
