Season 8 Digital Loot Pack
Live with the TRANSFORMERS Update, this year’s Digital Look Pack celebrates Season 8 and the upcoming SMITE World Championship. The bundle unlocks new Exclusive skins for Cernunnos, Morgan Le Fay, and Gilgamesh, plus Pittsburgh Knights Scylla, a tribute to 2021 World Champions.
One of the highest value bundles in SMITE, the Digital Look Pack, can be purchased in the in-game store.
God Rework – Bastet
SMITE’s Egyptian Goddess of cats Bastet has undergone substantial gameplay changes in the TRANSFORMERS Update.
With a brand-new ultimate, Bastet now summons a Huntress of Bast to pick up her target and drop them at her feet in true feline fashion. This makes Bastet a potential team-fight initiator, although she can also use her ultimate to hunt and kill isolated prey, as suits an Assassin.
Also new is a quality of life upgrade to her passive ability. Now called ‘Nightstalker’, it allows Bastet to reveal any enemy she attacks, ensuring they struggle to escape from her sights once engaged.
