The upcoming patch will include a brand new Arena game mode playable on a new map
Hi-Rez Studios announced today that the next patch for SMITE will add additional game mode. Called Arena, the mode is a very action-oriented, team death match and takes place on a brand new map with a Colosseum setting. Arena is played 5 versus 5 with minions and side-objectives including buff camps and Gryphon Guardians. But rather than a single end objective, in Arena your team earns points for killing enemy players and minions with the first team to deduct 500 points from their opponents being crowned the winner.
