SMITE 2 takes everything players love about SMITE and wraps it in state of the art visuals, animations and gameplay. With a refined user interface, updated audio, clearer spell effects, and fresh physics-based abilities for Gods such as Ymir, everything in the game has been improved. The move to a new backend technology also brings state-of-the-art cross-play, a ranked rework that contains new tiers and structures, alongside improved matchmaking.
Newcomers and veterans will discover new God pantheons, kit refinements, gameplay changes, and overhauled Relic and Item systems for deeper strategy, and more impactful combat. As well as a vision control slot and new dynamic map objectives, SMITE 2 introduces dual power sources – Strength and Intelligence – to diversify each God's abilities and offer more nuanced and varied playstyles. The reimagined Item Store simplifies item building and will improve new-player learning curves.
To honour 40 million SMITE players, a Divine Legacy program has been added. It will reward players for their time and accomplishments over 10 years of SMITE 1 and will honor player spending. Every gem players have previously spent will be convertedinto Legacy Gems in SMITE 2, that can be spent on new purchases. The Divine Legacy program will offer 11 unique skins, badges, Gold Mastery levels, and cross-generation skins that work across both games. Beginning in 2024, all new gem-purchasable skins in SMITE will be cross-generation.
Titan Forge Games is committed to supporting both SMITE 1 and SMITE 2 simultaneously, with SMITE1 servers remaining active once the sequel launches. Players will be able to continue to enjoy their journey in the original game while exploring the new horizons of SMITE 2.
