Transformers Are Joining Smite As Skins

Posted on

Smite is getting a Transformers battle pass, which is quite a different theme from Smite’s previous Stranger Things-themed battle pass. Launching on November 16, the Smite x Transformers battle pass doesn’t mean that autobots will enter as all-new playable characters in the MOBA game. Instead, certain Transformers will be available as skins for existing Smite gods.

Here’s a list of which gods will get which autobot skin:

  • Starscream (Jing Wei)
  • Megatron (Ra)
  • Optimus Prime (Geb)

From the trailer, it looks like the skins are from Generation 1–the original Transformer franchise–designs, which is pretty great.

Smite’s Transformers battle pass price isn’t known yet, but the regular TMNT battle pass cost 750 gems, so roughly around $15 USD. The premium tier of the TMNT battle pass cost 1350 gems which is very roughly equivalent to $21 USD. Players can probably expect pricing for the Transformers battle pass to fall somewhere around those values.

Smite developer Hi Rez Studios has collaborated with quite a few big franchises for the MOBA’s battle pass. There’s the already mentioned Stranger Things battle pass, as well as previous crossovers with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Avatar: The Last Airbender–all of which only ran for limited time and are no longer available.
