New Smite Update, Heavenly Light, Brings Queen of Cards Izanami

To beatThe latest ultimate skin reward – Izanami, Queen of Cards – hits Xbox today with a mix of deception and panache.

This is no ordinary skin – it’s what we call a “Tier 5” skin, which is the pinnacle of . represents To beat skin design and serve as the final reward for our new Heavenly Light event. Queen of Cards Izanami possesses four unique shapes, each inspired by a deck of cards and associated tarot symbolism, making her a bit of a stacked card game. When Izanami uses her ability to “Fade Away”, this beautiful skin changes between its four forms, each of which is functionally a completely separate skin. In addition, the Queen of Cards has a special bonus: an emote that evolves as you complete missions built into the skin, unique to each of the colors she can take on. Every time you get a kill or assist while playing Izanami, you draw four cards; if all four match, an upgraded emote is permanently unlocked for her current form.

Last but not least, we’re excited to give the community a much-requested update: expanded Custom Match options so you can play all kinds of fun new modes with your friends! When creating custom games, there are now a number of pre-saved defaults to help serve as a starting point for the more common game modes, in addition to more competitive rule sets such as Competitive Conquest for To beat Pro League and scrims, as well as the standings format. You can then customize each preset with a plethora of new, fun options, such as adjusting mana costs, cooldown reduction, and more. We can’t wait to see how you all use these options to design fun new custom competition experiences.

With that, I hope to see everyone shuffling back onto the battlefield soon, and make sure you practice your card counting or the queen of cards might catch you off guard.
