Morgan Le Fay, a powerful sorceress from the legend of King Arthur, has joined the ever-growing roster of legendary gods and goddesses in MOBA SMITE as part of the Dark Witch update this week. She plays the role of a crowd control mage, capable of applying magical buffs and powerful AoE spells, including summoning a dragon that can knock enemies back.
The latest update also reverts the Arena map to its original Greco-Roman art style and returns the Classic Duel map.
Throughout the history of SMITE, there have been many Showdown and Duel cards, each with its own unique successes and failures. As a new experiment, we will use the Classic Duel map as the default map in regular and ranked 3v3 and 1v1 matches, developer Hi-Rez Studios said.
This will give you two unique experiences. First, it’s crisp gameplay and rebalancing of modes that will create new meta gods and new experiences. But more interestingly, it creates a precedent for rotating the map in mode. The classic jousting tournament always came back as an additional mode that often divided the population and made it seem like a secondary mode. This time, the “Classic Duel” will be the most real in recent years! – they explained.
There are also new god skins, including three new for Morgan Le Fay, as well as the usual set of bug fixes, balance tweaks, and item tweaks.
