Gods and Goddesses it is time to embark on a journey once again. Today Hi-Rez Studios is happy to announce the newest update for their MOBA Smite: Battleground of the Gods, the Soaring Isles Odyssey Event. The event brings a host of new content. Of course, this includes the arrival of the game’s newest character: Ishtar the Babylonian Goddess of Love and War. A press release provides the notes on what this update brings to the game. Additionally, players can get a look at Ishtar in the new cinematic trailer for her. 


The Soaring Isles Odyssey event is the latest in the reoccurring series of events. This time players can once again look forward to new high-quality skins for many different characters in the game.
