Grab a pair of SMITE skins in honor of Celestial Voyage, courtesy of Hi-Rez and Massively OP

SMITE is kicking off a new event today, this one sure to bring a smile to the face of anyone obsessed with Stargate or Indy IV or just "alien astronaut" sci-fi in general. Dubbed Celestial Voyage, the event will ask players to complete quests to unlock goodies and hieroglyphs, the latter of which function as a puzzle for more loot.

As is traditional for SMITE, the update comes with a ton of exclusive themed skins. We've got two extra existing skins that match the theme to give away to our readers today: Celestial Isis and Stargazer Anubis. Onward to the giveaways!

Only two gamers have maxed out all of SMITE's 86 toons

As SMITE continues its third birthday celebrations, it's running multiple sales and bonus events in-game. Out of game, it's produced an inexplicably weird dance-off video and an infographic to brag up the game's stats.

Of note, players have counted over 247 million hours played in the last year alone -- and mage roles are by far the most popular (it's not even close!). And never let anyone tell you MOBAs are doomed to be short popcorn games; Hi-Rez says the longest conquest match ran 3 and a half hours.

A bonus slice of cake goes out to the two players -- only two! -- who've managed to achieve diamond mastery on every single god. I just counted: That's 86 characters maxed out.

Check 'em both out below. Especially that video, because what?

SMITE throws a week of birthday festivities

Touting proudly (and weirdly) that SMITE is almost out of its "toddler years," Hi-Rez Studios is throwing a week of celebration for the MOBA's third birthday. Starting tomorrow and running through March 27th, SMITE will boast ongoing and daily events to mark this occasion.

For the full week, SMITE is activating double login bonuses and handing out a birthday global emote to any player that gets a single win during the promotion. There's also a schedule posted of daily sales and giveaways that include free gems, a free enigma chest, and triple worshipers. The studio is also planning to run another community skin contest, starting tomorrow.

Hi-Rez recently put development of mobile spin-off SMITE Rivals on indefinite hold in favor of focusing more on a different spin-off, SMITE Tactics.

Hi-Rez puts SMITE Rivals development 'on hold'

Bad news for those who were looking forward to another SMITE spinoff game; it appears that the digital card game version of the game, SMITE Rivals, is taking a vacation from development. According to Hi-Rez Studios president Stew Chisam, the game's development is being put on hold to focus on developing SMITE Tactics:

SMITE reveals playable Cernunnos, The Horned God

I would be lying if I said that the latest god reveal for SMITE isn't provoking goat jokes. He is. He's Cernunnos, the stag-antlered Celtic deity of "wild things," of fertility, and of the underworld too. In SMITE, he'll wield a glaive, thorns, a horn-charge, the boards of the Wild Hunt itself, and the literal power of the seasons to kick your butt.

But it's cool, go ahead and make your goatman jokes.

The 4.4 patch should also introduce new skins for Kuzenbo, Bellona, Kukulkan, Chronos, Loki, Morrigan, and Izanami. It's on the PTS right now, but you can get caught up on Gernunnos and the notes in the videos below.

SMITE's first Adventure mode, Nike's Valley of Victory, is live

Players logging into SMITE today are in for a treat: Adventures are officially live with the game's latest patch. Adventures are planned as limited-time special game modes that change up every six weeks.

The first such mode, Nike's Valley of Victory, is a capture-the-flag event that runs on PC through March 28th (console versions will lag behind start and end dates by week). Hi-Rez notes that the map is free, but not so for the Adventure Bundles and limited edition skins, which will go up in price come the next cycle. "The Bundles with each Adventure will be available for a discounted price during the 4 weeks that the game mode is live, then available at full price during all 2017 Adventures," says the studio.

Kuzenbo, King of the Kappa, joins SMITE's roster today

Live in SMITE this very day is... OK, you know what, before we do this, let me just head off all Kappa jokes. Get it out of your system. OK. Kuzenbo, King of the Kappa -- the kappa of Japanese folklore, darnit, this is a real thing! Well not a real thing, but you know what I mean! -- is rolling out to SMITE PC players today. Kuzenbo's mechanics revolve around his head-bound water bowl, shell spikes, slams, and an epic ult called Watery Grave, which is as creepy as it sounds: "Kuzenbo pulls himself inwards under his shell and spins, summoning fierce currents that knock Enemies back, increase his Movement Speed, and allow him to move freely in all directions."

There's much more to the 4.2 patch, including Valentine's Day sales, the Clash map overhaul, and new skins, so check out the vids and pics below!
