Smite: Battleground of the Gods, the MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) game developed and produced by Hi-Rez Studios, has moved into the realm of comics with the help of Dark Horse Comics who has announced a collected edition for its three-issue digital-first series Smite: The Pantheon War, for later this year.
Written by John Jackson Miller (Star Wars, Mass Effect), co-writer Jack Banish, and artist Eduardo Francisco (Eve: Valkyrie, Captain Midnight), Smite: The Pantheon War follows the looming war between the various pantheons over the course of its three-issue arc.
Here’s the official description for the series:
It is an age where gods live among the mortals over which they rule. The worship of mortals is needed by the gods to maintain their divinity—but the number of gods has swelled, and there are fewer mortal faithful for the individual gods in each pantheon. Only the gods who maintain worshipers will survive, and so tensions are rising among the pantheons. There is an uneasy peace…but peace is not desired by all!
Smite: The Pantheon War is set to release on December 28, 2016.
