Smite: Thanatos Patch Notes and code giveaway!

Contest details at the bottom.

Fellow giant slaying, creep destroying, foe stomping, god slayers, the Smite Thanatos patch has now hit live beta. It also brings with it a huge array of improvements, additions, and some changes that have been requested by the community.


Firstly this patch brings with it a new god, Thanatos: The Hand of Death. Being the right hand of Hades can’t be easy, and his mechanics seem to be on par with that of Thor’s. This god is beautifully rendered with unique, highly detailed animations. If you haven’t seen it before, enjoy the reveal video below.
