The battleground of the gods continues to evolve as game developers Hi Rez Studios have continued to adapt and evolve SMITE, their ultra-popular MOBA title. Over the years we've seen tons of gameplay shifts including new maps, game modes, and so much more. But the unquestioned calling card of SMITE is its ever-growing cast of characters for players to choose from.
New gods and goddesses are always so popular, particularly because they can be seriously cracked and overpowered when first implemented into the lineup. For this reason, they're always banned in Ranked Conquest, at least for their initial welcoming stage.
We now know the next SMITE god joining the fight after Hi Rez revealed that Lancelot is coming soon. He'll be an Arthurian Assassin, so here's everything you need to know about Lancelot in SMITE including his release date, the reveal trailer, and more.
Lancelot is coming to SMITE - Release date
After previous teases via the official SMITE Twitter account, Hi Rez Studios officially unveiled Lancelot during the Patch 9.6 #RoundTable Update Show. The show highlighted a myriad of content information on Lancelot, including the release date for the new god.
