PS4 Cross-Play Now Available in SMITE – Odyssey: Underworld update brings Cross-play

The latest update to SMITE: Battleground of the Gods brings PlayStation 4 crossplay as well as two brand new events introducing a jaw-dropping 18 new skins. Following the recent announcement of PS4 crossplay in Paladins, SMITE now joins it in offering crossplay for the god-themed MOBA. SMITE is now the first MOBA to be available o all major platforms, with full crossplay between them. This includes the ability to queue against
players on any other platform, or invite friends from the PS4 version of the game into your parties to play alongside you.

Alongside crossplay, this new update brings the Odyssey: Underworld event and a new, evolving, tier 5 skin. The newly released goddess Persephone attempts to destabilize the other gods’ rule, while players can unlock new skins, emotes, announcer packs and more. Through completing quests and earning Odyssey points, players can work through earning these new additions, including the fan-requested Thanatoast Thanatos and the ultimate reward skin –
Stellar Demise Baron Samedi – which is available at the launch of the event; a first for such
premium skins.
Included in Underworld is the fan-favorite Corrupted Arena Adventure mode, which returns to
SMITE with a new aesthetic themed around Persephone. The mode also offers new gameplay
twists: a brand new relic which gives gods the ability to knock their enemies into death pits
located around the map, and a 5 vs 5 bonus round battle to the death to crown the ultimate
winners. The Corrupted Arena is the first of four Adventure modes which will return during the
Odyssey.
And if that wasn’t enough, the Pirate Queens battle pass also lands today, with treasures such
as Pirate Queen Change, First Mate Serqet, and Dread Captain Artemis. These skins, as well
as the ones available through the Odyssey event,  totals 18 brand new skins available in a single
update – a truly bountiful haul for the most adventurous swashbucklers willing to snag them all.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
