Smite has seen a significant release today with the launch of the new Sands and Skies Update.
And as you can imagine, the Smite patch notes are crammed with new information, including details on the new gods, Horus and Set.
It’s the first time that two Gods have been released at the same time for the free-to-play game, available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
From the new information released by Smite devs, Horus and Set are opposites, both in personality and gameplay.
Horus is described as calculated, defensive, and focused on his team, while Set is aggressive and violent, trusting only himself to overwhelm his opponents.
HORUS DESCRIPTION: “Horus is a Warrior in Smite, but a very atypical Warrior. Though he can hold his own in fights, he’s best when he’s fighting alongside his teammates.
“His gameplay is true to his character: A truly selfless leader will only help himself when it also helps his allies.
“Horus is often seen diving into the fray to protect his teammates from danger. No matter where a friend is, Horus can — and will — bring in reinforcements to turn the tide of battle”
SET DESCRIPTION: “Set is an Assassin in Smite, relying on his own strength and mastery of the sands. Who needs teammates when you can create your own allies from sand? Set conjures spawns to attack swiftly before they dissolve back into dust.
“Beware when the rage consumes Set — he drops his staff, unleashes his claws, and embraces his animalistic urges. He attacks faster and faster, letting his inner chaos free and ensuring his opponents’ doom.”
The official Smite patch notes are huge and include a breakdown on Horus and Set’s abilities.
