Just as we revealed last week, Medusa is the new deity to join the SMITE roster. Medusa, the Gorgon is focused on an aggressive playstyle and high burst damage. The god reveal video below will tell you more about Medusa, and you can also take a look at the admittedly cool mini-site devoted to her.
Medusa’s passive Sidewinder allows her to suffer no movement penalties when side strafing and only half when moving backward. Her Ultimate is Petrify, where Medusa takes off her mask revealing her true face and delivering a powerful blast from her horrifying Gorgon gaze. Opponents looking at Medusa will be stunned for a short time while also taking a large amount of damage. Enemies killed will turn into a stone statue and remain behind as a reminder of Medusa’s power.
This patch also introduces an overhaul of the Clan system with the roll-out of a new Honor mechanic. Clans gain levels by earning Honor, increasing the number of members that can join and unlocking special rewards and achievements in later patches.
New skins include Athena Liberté, Thor Wrath of Valhalla, Vulcan Warforged and Vamana Cangaceiro. You can see all the patch notes here.
