SMITE is getting a battle royale mode adventure of its very own in 5.10

Battle royale is the thing to do lately, and by Zeus, SMITE is doing that thing: In update 5.10, the Hi-Rez MOBA will introduce Medusa’s Death Match, another of its adventure side-games, only this one is explicitly a battle royale map.

“The 3v3v3 death match brawler adventure will be played on a new egyptian themed map. Teams will spawn at bases around a center objective, but the true goal is to be the last man standing. The first team to win 3 rounds wins the match. A death fog will quickly close in on the map, until only the center play area is left available. The 3-team game format makes for interesting strategy and the potential for alliances not normally found in SMITE game modes. The killer fog sets a definitive timer for rounds, and it makes matches quick-paced and fun.”

The new adventure should be rolling out to PC and consoles later in June as part of the game’s ongoing fifth season.

3v3v3? I can understand not having 100 players for Smite Royale (can you imagine all those particle effects?) But 9 players seems way too small.

This is becoming a ROYALE pain in my ass.

It would be hilarious if this proved out to be an hit after Epic killed Paragon.

3v3v3?

So…have we reached the point where “battle royal” as a term is meaningless, yet? Because I’m all for words evolving over time, but a 3v3v3 setup in no way, shape, or form sounds like an actual battle royal. Sounds a lot more like your usual deathmatch setup, with the only twist being a map that gets progressively smaller.

Is there a shelter for people who are not currently interested in battle royal games where we can wait out the fallout?

A retirement home for the elderly will do too yes, as long as there’s a decent library and BBC on the telly….

There is, but only one person is allowed there and you have to fight on a shrinking map for the chance to be the one who gets the spot.
