The heavily-anticipated Celtic Pantheon is coming to SMITE in January! The SMITE team has been busy working on its creation with the release of the first Celtic Goddess, The Morrigan, and a brand new Celtic-inspired event, Path of the Phantom Queen.
What better way to kick off the Celtic Pantheon in SMITE than with the introduction of the oldest Celtic god? This deceptive Mage is actually multiple beings that share one personality. She’s been in development for over three months and has one of the most programming-intensive abilities in the game – she can transform into any god in the match. This is a completely unique ability that’s new to SMITE and opens up countless gameplay strategies.
“The Morrigan is a complex and mysterious Goddess in lore, and her personality and abilities in SMITE are focused around the same concepts,” said A.J. “HiRezAjax” Walker, Lead Designer on SMITE. “She should be quite a challenge for even the most seasoned Smite players!”
The Morrigan will be joining the Battleground of the Gods with the 3.25 patch in early January.
Path of the Phantom Queen
Sacred tales of adventure, heroism, and magic make Celtic mythology so enchanting, and Celtic Gods even moreso. We want to bring that mysterious and playful atmosphere to SMITE in our new Celtic-inspired event, Path of the Phantom Queen!
Roll the dice and travel through the board game, completing quests and unlocking rewards like the new Celtic-inspired Terra skin, Celtic Loading Frame, Cutesy Morrigan Avatar, and more! Twitch Prime members gain access to the event for free; otherwise it costs 1000 Gems to join the event and start unlocking rewards.
“With every event that we do in SMITE, we like to try a new twist,” said Chris Larson, SMITE Executive Producer. “ For the Celtic event, we added a board game of sort that should be fun for the players to work their way through. You may get lucky on a roll and get a special bonus or you may hit a trap!”
Path of the Phantom Queen will be releasing on Console and PC with the 3.25 patch in early January. Learn more about the Celtic Pantheon and Event at http://www.smitegame.com/celtic/
