Hi-Rez Expo 2018: King Arthur and Merlin join SMITE’s lineup


SMITE doesn’t restrict itself to only ancient deities from various pantheons for its lineup of combatants – it also draws on those giants of myth and legend who wield god-like powers or influence. At the opening of Hi-Rex Expo today, Titan Forge Games announced that two heroes of the round table are coming to SMITE’s table: King Arthur and Merlin are joining the battle ranks as gods 99 and 100.

The warrior King Arthur is further along in development and will release first, with Merlin and his three spheres of magic coming after. Check out a sneak preview of Merlin and King Arthur in the video below, along with reveal trailer for the new Godslayer Ares tier 5 skin.

After those highlights, we learned more about the rest of the gods coming for Season 6. Jormungand, the world dragon (who also happens to be one of Loki and Angrboda’s children along with Hel and Fenrir), will be god number 101. His arrival heralds the end of Ragnarok. And for SMITE’s birthday, long-requested fan favorites Horace and Set will finally join the fray. After that, a new pantheon with a new powerful god will be introduced.

More news, details, and interviews are on the way, so keep an eye out for our continuing HRX coverage!
