The developers of MOBA Smite have shared a new cinematic trailer to welcome the Ceaseless Whirlpool, Charybdis, to the battleground of gods in Season 8. There once was a girl born from the depths of the sea…
The developers took in the descriptions of Scylla and Charybdis as the inspiration for the latest god. The team wanted to stay true to the idea of them being a duo – they are not technically related, depending on the source material, but it felt clearly justified to symbolically design them as sisters.
- Theme – Dangerous Seas – Charybdis is the embodiment thalassophobia, the dangers that lurk below the water’s surface. She is a sea monster, a whirlpool, and a goddess of the ocean’s royal family.
- Visuals – Hidden Horrors – Charybdis is confident and fierce, but her powers are invisible at first glance. She has learned to control her curse, and conceals a massive monstrous maw underneath her cloak.
- Personality – Vengeful and Cold – Charybdis has been cursed by the gods, and trapped underwater for centuries. She feels intense anger toward those who brought her this fate, although she maintains a cool and calculating presence.
- Perspective – Trouble – The gods don’t know whose side Charybdis is on, they just know that her and Scylla are violent, unpredictable, and back with a vengeance.
The whirlpool and the serpent, the daughters of destruction, the dynamic duo: Scylla and Charybdis are finally reunited in SMITE’s next update. Zeus better watch his back!
In SMITE, players get to control gods and pit them against one another. Unleash each deity’s unique strategies, legendary weapons, and earth-shattering powers. Rain lightning down upon your foes as Zeus, assassinate from the shadows as Loki, or transform and trick your foes as the Monkey King, Sun Wukong.
Unlike other MOBAs, the game puts you directly onto the battlefield with a third-person action viewpoint. From blind-side ambushes to aimed shots, a new pantheon of strategic possibilities awaits.
