Summer of Smite 2016
Sometimes, even the Gods want to relax. And nothing’s better than a little fun in the sun — just ask Khepri.
This Summer of SMITE, the Gods are kicking back on the beach, catching some waves, and competing in the Great Games Arena. Take part and grab some sweet Limited skins before the sun sets on Aug. 30!
Like last year, you will have the opportunity to purchase exclusive skins only available during the event.
As you can see in the image to the left, a total of 3100 Gems will net you all the event exclusive skins. They have not announced all of them yet, but they will in time.
When you get to a certain number of Skins purchased, you get an exclusive bonus item. As you can see there are 4 free bonus items.
Get even more skins, voice packs, avatars, wards, emotes, or boosters by unlocking an Enigma Treasure Chest for every Summer of SMITE item you purchase!
THE GREAT GAMES BEGIN!
This year they will add an extra dimension to the game. “Great Games” will feature a reskinned Arena map. Besides that they will add a running mode and special quests related to the “Great Games Arena”.
Arenas are not only for combat. For the Summer of SMITE, the Arena has become a Stadium fit for the Great Games!
RUN THE TRACK
Be like Merc. A new running track will have you racing around the Arena!
To the victors go the spoils. Earn Gems for your performance in the Great Games Arena through a special quest!
