If you’ve ever felt like SMITE has mined out a few pantheons for all the material that’s available, you’ll be happy to know that patch 5.8 doesn’t just mark the launch of the Slavic deity Chernobog. No, this is part of the new Divine Uprising event, bringing out a wholly new balance to the game as well as three new pantheons getting added into the mix. And that’s just the start; after all, there is the aforementioned Chernobog.
The patch also adjust balance for several existing gods and offers new skins, along with some tweaked item balance across the board. Of course, the patch isn’t perfect, and a thread of known issues has already been started; we can only hope that those are addressed sooner rather than later. Still, though, the promise of entirely new groups of myths to fight against? That has to be worth something.
