Smite receives new character Geb, arena map

Hi-Rez Studios' free-to-play 3D multiplayer online battle arena game, Smite, received a new arena map and god character called Geb, the developer recently announced.

Geb is a god of the Earth with the power to transform into a mass of rolling earth, create shockwaves and more. The character also posseses a passive skill that allows him to take less damage when struck with a critical hit. For more Geb's moves and lore, watch the video above.

Smite has a new arena map, which features fully updated art. After every 10 player kills on one side, the map spawns the Manticore. If a team can successfully guide the Manticore through the other team's portal, the opposing team loses 10 points.

Smite is currently in open-beta. The full version is expected to launch March 25.
