The latest Guardian in Smite is Maui, the hero of Hawaii.
Hi-Rez Studio today revealed Smite’s latest guardian, Maui. In his cinematic trailer, Maui wields his magical fish hook to pull the sun through the sky and lift an island from the ocean floor.
The full reveal is set for October 12 at 3 PM Eastern Time during the Smite Update Show. Maui joins the game as a playable god on October 18. Players can unlock him just by playing the game.
Here is a description of Maui from Hi-Rez:
In the Polynesian pantheon, Maui is the God who is both a trickster and a hero to the people. His tales tell of grand displays where his deeds benefited mankind. Among these are bringing fire to the world by stealing it from the Gods, or slowing the Sun to grant longer days. Don’t let Maui’s mischievous nature fool you – his love for humanity and heroic nature make him a force to be reckoned with. Even the Sun itself couldn’t withstand the might of Maui; these silly gods won’t stand a chance!
Maui marks SMITE’s second-ever Polynesian god, wielding his great hook with the prowess and skill of an expert fisherman. Mastering him requires effective use of his hook to grab enemies, pull up islands, or, if you wish, assist your allies with magical blessings. There are a number of ways to leverage Maui’s penchant for trickery and they will be key to making plays.
Smite is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation5, and PC.
