Smite Releases a Squirrel God in Latest Patch

Ratatoskr, the Poetic Edda's insidious instigator, joins the fight at last.

As if I needed any more reasons to start playing Smite. Say hello to Ratatoskr, Hi-Rez Studios' most recent addition to the Smite pantheon.

In case you're not familiar (and I can't imagine why you wouldn't be), Ratatoskr is a red squirrel from Norse mythology, who spends much of his time conveying insults between the wise eagle living atop Yggdrasil (the world tree) and the wicked serpent living at the bottom. In short, he's the Norse god of smack talk, and he's ready to start some shit.

In addition to being unjustifiably adorable for such a mischievous mammal, Ratatoskr is also expected to be a formidable opponent, posing the greatest threat to gods like Isis and Ra. The sly squirrel will also be the first character to possess their own character specific item--in this case, the magic acorn, which provides the character with diverse playstyles.

Ratatoskr is available to play now for 200 gems or 11000 favor. For more information, including early concept art, be sure to drop by the official reveal page.
