Ah, the "Gabe Said So" sale. For those of you new to the concept, it's a yearly sale where Hi-Rez Studios, the developers of SMITE
, take a stab at Steam sale level madness by putting everything in the in-game store on sale and making videos with terrible puns about Gabe Newell, Steam and Valve games.
This year, everything is going to be 25 percent off — this includes skins, chests, voice packs, avatars and emotes according to Hi-Rez. It encompasses everything added to the store prior to the Viking Invasion event. Though nothing was specified, this historically does not include favor prices as only gem prices are discounted.
Players can also earn 10 free gems per First Win of the Day on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. If you count up all the game modes, that's up to 100 gems a day or 400 gems total, which is an $8.00 US value.
The event begins at Friday, July 1st at 5:00 am EDT and will end Tuesday, July 5th 5:00 am EDT. Why? Because Gabe said so.
