Oh, were you trying to keep up with all the E3 news? And perhaps your job, family or other life obligations? Too bad SMITE fans, Hi-Rez Studios' Xbox One development team is demanding your attention this week when they drop the latest patch.

As a brief overview for those who don't have time for the often extensive patch notes, the newest Guardian Fafnir will be added to the game, marking god number 77 for the third-person MOBA. Xbox One players are also finally receiving a long-wanted feature from the PC version: clans and clan rewards. The in-game store has also been overhauled completely and should help you to browse easier. See below for the full patch notes.

New Achievements/Awards

• As Nox remain inside an ally for 8 Seconds.

• Fixed an issue with TP Gains/Losses when teams that were expected to win were on a certain side of the map.

• Due to this change, we will be doing a “Soft” reset of everyone about 100 TP in Diamond 1 and Grandmasters. This reset will be a flat % reduction that varies by the platform and the queue type. This is meant to reduce players who gained a large amount of points they should not have earned while still maintaining the current ranking. As an example, someone with 2,000 TP in Conquest Ranked on Console will be reduced by 75%, reducing that player to 350 TP.

• Conquest Ranked: -75%
• Joust Ranked: -50%
• Duel Ranked: -75%

• Increase the weighting from +- 5 to +-8 for TP gains when teams are unevenly matched.

• To explain this change we want to give clarity to how TP as a whole works. Every game the amount of TP earned or lost is modified based on the expected outcome of a match was as well as how far a player’s MMR is from the division they “should” be in. All players begin at 11 TP and then lose or gain points based off these metrics and are then adjust up to +-5 based on how fair the match was (+-0 if 50/50) and +-6 if you are not in the division your MMR would suggested. In previous patches players could earn +- 5 points based on whether or not they were favored for a given match, and this has been increased to +- 8.

Hi-Rez console developer Andy Anderson tweeted the patch has already been submitted to Microsoft for certification. They are hoping for it to go live Thursday morning. We will receive confirmation of whether not this is happening on Wednesday. In the meantime, you'll be playing on the previous patch, 3.9: Viking Invasion.

Author's note: Normally I bring you news from the PC version as to what Xbox players have to look forward to down the road. But currently, I have no news to bring, as once this patch drops, Xbox One will be caught up to the PC version (which is also on patch 3.10) for the time being!
