Smite's Odyssey: Reckoning Update Introduces Quest System, New Tier 5 Skin
The latest incarnation of Smite's annual Odyssey event introduces a quest system that unlocks new cosmetics, as well as a new battle pass.
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.
