Guan Yu Arrives In Smite
A new patch for SMITE’s closed beta has released a new god, along with other updates.
Guan Yu, the Saint of War, is introduced to the roster with the update. Guan Yu’s passive gives him physical and magical protection when near structures; his other skills include Tranquil Gift (a heal), Warrior’s Will (a charge and slow), Taolu Assault (a debuff/AoE), and Tactician’s Advantage (a slowing, silencing, stunning attack). Other game tweaks and fixes are also included in the patch.
