Smite, like League of Legends and DOTA 2, is a MOBA– A Multiplayer Online Battle Arena. And while we’re typically used that that playing out in three lanes with a few towers and minions in-between, Smite continues to release “Adventures” that allow you to get out of the traditional game modes and into something a little more…adventurous. Yesterday, the game released its newest Adventure, Shadows Over Hercopolis, on Xbox One and PS4 alongside patch 4.21.
The adventure acts as a follow up to one of the previous, and much beloved, Adventures: Trials of King Hercules. Other Adventures include a Mario Kart inspired racing game, a Capture the Flag mode, and a variation of the Arena game mode. While they’ve varied in replayability, the RPG-inspired Trials of King Hercules was held in high regard as it seamlessly transitioned its item-building ability-based action into a multiple-boss dungeon encounter. You even had to earn loot to gear out your gods. And this time we’re getting a similar experience.

Developer Hi-Rez Studios has even set out a challenge, awarding the world-first hard mode team that completes the event 6,000 gems.
