    • Get your friends together to play SMITE on this special night to earn bonus rewards and play new modes or interesting twists on current modes!
    • SMITE NIGHT will occur on Saturdays and last for 24 hours.
    • SMITE NIGHT will feature a different mode each week.
    • Rewards
      • Each SMITE NIGHT a player will be given 2 quests to complete on that SMITE NIGHT.

  • Classic Conquest
    • This map is a blast from the past! It was only available to PC players during the earliest closed beta phases of SMITE back in 2012. Many players have never played this map, but those who have know how amazing it was. Now everyone can have that experience of the very first playable SMITE Conquest map.
    • We aimed to preserve as much as possible of the rules and pacing as the original map, the late game gold and experience gain tends to be much slower than modern maps
    • All the original environment art and most of the original character art will be displayed in all of it’s 2012 glory
    • This map will only be available to queue on the 1st and 3rd SMITE NIGHTS. It will be available for custom games, but only after the 1st official SMITE NIGHT and not on 9.5 launch day.
    • Fire giant has a different set of attacks and an enclosed arena
    • Many jungle buff camps are located on the outside of the side lanes – often referred to as “side jungles”
    • Jungle Buffs are NOT symmetrical per lane – your opponents in your lane will have access to different buffs than you do.
    • In each side lane, one team will have Health and Mana buff as their safe buffs, the other team will have Speed and Protections.
    • Damage Buff is contested
    • Both Mid Laners get Cooldown Buff
    • Generally this map was played with 2 different duo lanes instead of a dedicated Jungler

      • All Jungle Buffs Spawn at 00:10s game time

QUALITY OF LIFE
  • Economy
    • Battle Pass XP can now be purchased for Favor as well as Gems!
      • You still have to own the Battle Pass in order to purchase xp (this has always been the case).
    • Earn Free Rewards Update
      • Watching ads will now grant Favor instead of Viewer Points
  • General
    • More improvements have been made to server performance and stability
    • Relic and Glyph Purchasing (PC)
      • When we introduced Glyphs and Relic Upgrades we changed the purchase flow to require players to click through their Relic or Tier 3 item and then make their purchase. This requires players to click additional times in order to purchase those items, but makes it easier to browse the upgrades. We are reverting this.
      • In this update players will directly buy their Relic or Tier 3 item from the first menu available.
      • Players will need to select the Relic or Item in their inventory to upgrade it further or purchase a Glyph. Or they can navigate through the store by searching the name or stat type.
      • Updated the tabbed out UI art for “You have an invite!”, “Your match is ready!”, and “Your match has begun!”
    • Audio
      • Have you ever experienced buying a new game, booting it up, and then finding the default audio to be painfully loud? This affects a lot of new games due to how widely different PC users’ audio settings can be. Last update we decreased a lot of the default volumes in SMITE, so even if you had it at 100% it would be quieter than in previous updates. Music got the largest adjustment here and we will be partially reverting that in this update to allow it to be set to a louder volume.
      • Adjusted the min, max, and default volumes of all volume setting sliders (already live)
      • Increased the max volume of the music setting
