Since 2015, the free-to-play MOBA Smite has run an annual event called Odyssey, and 2020 is no different. This year’s version is called Odyssey: Reckoning, and the update is now live on all platforms. As with previous incarnations of Odyssey, the ultimate reward for completing the event’s content is a new Tier 5 god skin, in this case the Eclipse Summoner Hel.
This update introduces a quest system to the game, which is accessed through the new Odyssey map. Event-exclusive Odyssey points–which are gained by participating in the Necropolis battle pass or by buying other items in the shop–can be spent to unlock new territories on the map, which come with their own quests and rewards.
The patch also comes with a wide variety of bug fixes and gameplay changes, including a rework of several key items, including the Serrated Edge, Charon’s Coin, and quite a few others. Meanwhile, gods like Baba Yaga, Ra, and Zeus have received buffs, while Nemesis gets a minor nerf.
Smite’s recent 7.8 update introduced Tsukuyomi, the Shinto god of the moon. The game’s previous 7.7 update added skins from the popular animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender to the game, as well as overhauling how jungle camps function in Smite’s core Conquest mode.
