The team over at Hi-Rez Studios has good news for anyone who has ever wanted to play a character with hair modelled after my own. The latest character being added to the Smite [official site] roster is The Gorgon Medusa, Miss Medusa if you’re nasty.
Medusa slots quite nicely into the hunter role with lots of ranged attacks. She also, quite naturally, has a nice ultimate that turns enemies facing her to stone. The latest update also sees improvements made to the game’s clan system, along with new skins for Thor, Vulcan and Athena. There’s a hero introduction video explaining Medusa’s abilities below.
Every MOBA needs a giant snake, I guess.
Smite only recently started its Season Two, which saw the introduction of an overhauled Conquest map to change and de-clunk the game area, and improve strategic play overall. We took a look at what had been changed earlier in the year. You can also check out our coverage of Smite’s first world championships.
