SMITE developer Hi-Rez Studios has announced SMITE patch 5.8 will release simultaneously for all three platforms: PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Patch 5.8 has been undergoing extended testing on the PC’s public test servers. Patch 5.8 includes the introduction of the Slavic pantheon with its first god, Chernobog, the beginning of the Divine Uprising event, and more.
HiRezStew also had some great news about the patch: Chernobog and his voice pack will be purchasable for essentially free; each will be sold for a limited time for only one favor, SMITE’s in-game currency. Of course, many players own SMITE’s Ultimate God Pack and receive all gods for free regardless, but the regular price of a voice pack is 200 gems. The voice pack sale is perhaps in response to SMITE players who already own all voice packs not being able to use their 50% off coupon before it expired due to the long gap in between god releases.
The SMITE servers will go down to be updated to patch 5.8 on May 15 at 5 a.m. for PC, 7 a.m. for Xbox One and 8 a.m. for PS4. All times are in EDT.Follow @SMITEScrub
