Smite Down: My Bellona has a first name

The Smite Down is back with an impending update to the game. Hi Rez is in the second season of its hit game and they show no signs of slowing down with the announcement of another god.

Bellona is the Roman goddess of war and from the looks of her, she’s set to take the game by storm. She’s not yet released but these are the details Hi Rez studios have shown, and I for one am excited to play with her.

To start out Bellona is a warrior class that changes weapons with basics moves that she preforms. Using a sword, hammer, and a scourge, Bellona seems capable of different tactics depending on each weapon. With her capability of acquiring high defense and an ultimate to buff champions around her, Bellona might just be first pick or ban in matches. Bellona is set to be relaxed soon, but for more info on her and the Smite update check out all the details below.
