Smite Season 8 brings new Conquest map and Babylonian gods

Here's what Hi-Rez has instore for Smite in 2021

Hi-Rez Studios has given everyone a peep at what 2021 holds for Smite fans. The studio held an online event to reveal the roadmap for the MOBA’s new season, Dawn of Babylon, alongside a look at what’s going on in Rogue Company and Paladins.

Smite is getting an “all-new evolving Babylonian pantheon Conquest map” alongside some visual tweaks to pre-existing maps. There are also plans to release eight gods throughout Season 8, but the only names we have thus far are Tiamat and Gilgamesh. The former is a dragon who can switch stances to alter her playstyle while the other is a frontline warrior. Tiamat will launch first in the 8.2 release whereas Gilgamesh will come after in the 8.4 update.

Hi-Rez Studios says it’s planning two more collaborations this year, though details on what they’ll entail aren’t available yet. We’re also getting a new battle pass and oodles of tweaks to items and characters. If you’d like to check them out for yourself, you can head over to the developer’s website.
