Ares defeats Ganesha in SMITE’s Odyssey 2019 tier 5 skin vote

Today, SMITE developer Hi-Rez Studios announced Ares won the Odyssey 2019 tier 5 skin vote.

Ares made it all the way through a 16-god bracket to face off against Ganesha in the final round where Ares’ God Slayer skin concept beat out Ganesha’s M.O.U.S.E. Force concept.

With the announcement of Ares’ win, more concept art was released on Twitter for the God Slayer skin. “An ancient artifact has lain dormant for far too long, and it’s whispers of corruption have begun to echo across the Battleground,” the tweet reads. “The community has spoken and the God of War is victorious! Ares will wield this powerful weapon as this year’s Odyssey Tier 5 Skin!”

While players can ooh and ahh at concept art in the meantime, the tier 5 skin won’t actually be released for some time. The Odyssey event always concludes SMITE’s seasons, and Season 5 won’t end for several months with the SMITE World Championship at DreamHack Atlanta in November and the ranked season set to end in January according to the ranked page in the SMITE client.
