Chinese Pantheon Update Heading To SMITE
Yesterday’s regular patch preview livestream was nowhere to be seen and many SMITE players responded with excitement as they expected something big to be announced during the Gamescom event. They were right to get excited.
During Gamescom Hi-Rez Studios revealed that the Chinese Pantheon will be receiving some much needed attention prior to its launch in Eastern markets. The previously removed Sun Wukong makes a return while Guan Yu gets a graphical and ability makeover.
Tencent Games have also announced their support as an official publishing partner for China, bringing SMITE to millions of potential MOBA fans. The new Gods are exciting enough but the potential surge in players could also see a huge increase in revenue for Hi-Rez Studios, prompting many to believe quicker updates and more content.
