… That character is Hercules, of course.
In fact, it’s Retro Herc, a resurrected version of Hercules from early on in SMITE’s development, and he’s a gift to the community meant to celebrate the game’s 10 millionth player. Yes, a gift:
“Anyone who wins 10 PvP matches in August will unlock Hercules as a playable god, along with the Hercules retro skin and a new Hercules voice pack featuring Kevin Sorbo, the star of TV’s Hercules: The Legendary Journeys – all for free.”
Hi-Rez further reminds everyone about its unannounced game, playable at Gamescom.
The video is below, and yes, Kevin Sorbo’s in it.
