Get with down with Afro-Dite.
SMITE, the free-to-play third-person MOBA from Hi-Rez Studios, is already different from other MOBAs based on its camera alone. However, Hi-Rez is always looking to make things in the game better, so they've introduced a few changes to the Conquest Map to offer easier navigation and camera movement which will make jungle team-fights more manageable.
The Conquest Map is SMITE's main 5v5 map that's similar to your standard MOBA map. The goal in Conquest is to get gold and levels in order to buy items and kill your enemies' towers and base. In the new patch, the Conquest Map's jungle has a new layout entirely, adding room for two extra fury camps. The lairs of the Fire Giant and Gold Fury are now more roomy, but bases overall have been reduced in size.
In addition to the map, the patch brings a couple new skins and voice packs. Aphrodite gets a funky new disco-themed Afro-dite skin, and Loki gets the Golden skin treatment. As for voices, you can get new packs for both Agni and Xbalanque.
Check out a quick run down of the new changes in the video below.

SMITE is an online battleground between gods. Players choose from a selection of gods, join session-based arena combat and use custom powers and team tactics against other players and minions. SMITE is inspired by Defense of the Ancients (DotA) but instead of being above the action, the third-person camera brings you right into the combat. And, instead of clicking a map, you use WASD to move, dodge, and fight your way through the detailed graphics of SMITEīs battlegrounds.
