With SMITE entering its World Championship final phase, the god-themed Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) has just announced a couple of big reveals, including a major crossover with Magic the Gathering and a new playable God, Surtr.
The MTG collab kicks off in a crossover event that begins sometime in January this year. Take a look:

With MTG being one of the most popular fantasy-themed IPs, it’s an exciting collab for MTG and SMITE fans alike. With skins for various Planeswalkers such as Karn, Liliana Vess, and Chandra Nalaar, the event is setting up to be the game’s largest crossover yet.
Another announcement also turns one of the game’s jungle bosses into a fully playable God. Surtr, who players have been taking down for a decade in-game, will now be playable as a God himself. Here’s the official announcement video:
Surtr’s abilities will allow him to summon imps, create rings of fire, and even become a meteor that “will crash down from the skies.” The trailer depicts Surtr dying repeatedly, a reference to players taking him down in-game.
SMITE is currently playable on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
