Today SMITE is receiving a happy little update which adds the Bob Ross Bundle for PC players. Console players will get access to this new skin, loading frame, loading screen, and jump stamp on May 16. We're not kidding. This is actually happening, and it's actually the greatest thing we've heard in a long time. Why wouldn't Bob-Ross-themed content be coming to SMITE?! Check it all out in the gallery below.
"Twitch and Hi-Rez Studios have teamed up to create the happiest little accident in SMITE's history. Introducing the Bob Ross Sylvanus Bundle, starring – you guessed it – Bob Ross. This skin transforms the Roman god Sylvanus into Bob Ross’ likeness complete with his own 'happy little tree' and custom made watercolor ability effects." You've heard of The Joy of Painting, but now it's time to let Bob Ross himself, and his assistant Grover, to introduce you to The Joy of Ganking:
This artistic little bundle can be purchased in-game for 700 gems. If you're running low on those glitter-rocks and feel like you need this right away, you can also purchase the bundle on Twitch Commerce for $9.99.
“We’ve partnered with Twitch for special SMITE content in the past and this latest collaboration is something our dev team was really excited to work on,” said Todd Harris, Co-founder and COO of Hi-Rez Studios. “The Joy of Painting inspired artists across the game industry and the Twitch livestreams introduced Bob to gamers worldwide. We’re grateful to the Bob Ross estate and Twitch for enabling us to re-introduce and honor Bob Ross given the global Smite audience.”
It's not all about Bob Ross though. Well... It is all about Bob Ross, but this latest update also adds a bunch of new skins and content for other gods as well. Get update and boot up SMITE to see "Queen's Guard Erlang Shen," "Cosmic Sol," "Vizier Thoth," "Honorbound Kuzenbo," and "Obey Thantos." All of these skins look amazing, and you can see them all in the gallery below. The new update also adds a new emote, new avatar, and several new achievements.
We'll see you on that hallowed battleground, everyone. It's time to paint the town red with the crimson blood of gods!
