Arena, one of SMITE’s most popular game modes, is receiving a complete art update! Since this mode is so popular, we thought to ourselves: “don’t fix what isn’t broken.” So, the Arena map has minimal gameplay changes, ad mostly focuses on art, visual clarity, and feedback

Environment has been updated to more clearly differentiate between the two sides of the Arena and to better adhere to SMITE’s lore.

The Order side is themed around Greek Architecture and Hera
The Chaos side is themed around Roman Siege warfare and Bellona
The juggernauts have been replaced by Minotaurs!
They obey the same rules as before, they will continue moving toward the portal as long as an ally is near them
They will stop moving if no allies are nearby
Unlike Juggernauts, Minotaurs will attack when stopped
There are new audio cues when a Minotaur spawns or when a Minotaur enters a portal
Order and Chaos Minions have all been updated visually
UI icons for taking damage or death recap have been updated for new NPCs
The all new SMITE Arena is available to play right now! We’ll see you on the Battleground.
