A new Smite x RuneScape crossover event just went live today.
The legendary MMOs RuneScape and Old School RuneScape reaffirm their mythological status and come to the action-MOBA Smite as a crossover. The new Smite RuneScape crossover event is live with the next major game update.
The Smite x RuneScape crossover event introduces several unique features: Skill Capes straight from RuneScape that can be equipped on the event character skins, and a brand-new RuneScape-style chat option that looks like it was pulled straight from the Grand Exchange.
Smite RuneScape Crossover Skill Capes
With no fewer than sixty-nine Skill Capes, players can base their pick either on looks or on how well their Cape boasts of their overdedication. The Capes are true to the spirit of RuneScape as they require an astronomical amount of grinding to unlock them.
Wearing the Master Herblore Cape shows the world how crucial Potions are to your playstyle, as it is unlocked after drinking 3000 of them. Traveling for 15 million feet in Smite is a lot of travel indeed; only the Master Agility Cape proves your divine legs were up to the challenge. Those with less peaceful aspirations can wear the Master Slayer Cape after a wobbling 3600 PK perpetrated in the wilderness.

All Capes can be equipped on any of five event skins, showcasing characters in the art style of Old School Gielinor. RuneScape fans should be delighted to become the famed NPC Wise Old Man as Merlin, a regular Gnome Child with a Vamana skin, or the King Black Dragon – a perfect fit for Cerberus. And yes—King Black Dragon can also wear any of the Capes. Rune Armor Bellona and Blessed Dragonhide Neith could very well be player characters straight from RuneScape.
Music, cosmetics, and more
The event also features music, cosmetic packs, and more flavorful features from the game. The union of the fantasy worlds of Smite and RuneScape feels like a natural match. Both these competitive multiplayer titles are full of nostalgic vibes with a tone ranging from epic to goofy.
Smite is a free-to-play game for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation5, and Nintendo Switch.
