SMITE patch 5.3 release dated for console launch

Our fellow SMITE-ers on console are just about to receive patch 5.3, which includes new warrior Achilles: Hero of the Trojan War, the usual array of item and god buffs and nerfs, and another anime Ratatoskr skin.

SMITE Achilles
Consoles will get to experience Achilles in all of his OP glory

Most excitingly for console is that Xbox One and PS4 will be allowed to use SMITE’s full VGS set. Previously, only a small portion of commands were available. The move to full VGS is part of developer Hi-Rez Studios’ commitment to improve the SMITE console experience, which in January Hi-Rez admitted is lackluster.

SMITE patch 5.3 will be pushed to consoles on Tuesday, February 6 following maintenance that will begin at 7 a.m. EST.
