SMITE Patch 5.24 Adds King Arthur

By Kelly Packard,
The star of SMITE's latest patch, which hit consoles on Tuesday, is the newest playable character, King Arthur. The update also continues the long-running Odyssey event with more quests and content, brings more skins, offers balance changes and more.

King Arthur is the first addition to the Arthurian pantheon, which was revealed at November's Hi-Rez Expo. Hi-Rez says of the character that they "chose to focus mainly on Excalibur and his 'Warrior King' qualities for SMITE’s King Arthur" and that those themes "play a pivotal role in his artistic portrayal, his personality, and his ability kit."

The update also offers all the traditional additions of a SMITE patch, like more purchasable items and a new Arthurian event, balance changes, bug fixes and more skins. The detailed console patch notes can be perused on the official SMITE website.

The patch is live now for SMITE.
