HiRez Studios Reveals New SMITE God: Thor, The God of Thunder

Today, HiRez Studios made the announcement of the next playable god that will be added in the next build will be the Norse god of Thunder, Thor.

Being a fan of Thor, with the help of the Avenger’s movie series, I’m excited to try this god. His Ultimate looks a little over-powered with the distance he can jump, but it seems survivable. Looking closely at the video shows that his Ultimate does not offer Line-of-Sight, until he selects a location, or Line-of-Sight is already provided from Minions or Ally Gods(esses) .

His passive is called Warrior’s Madness which gives Thor +20 Physical Power for each enemy god within 30 feet, and stacks up to three times. Hit the jump for his official reveal trailer and a run down of abilities.

Here’s the list of his active abilities:

Mjolnir’s Attunement

  • Thor throws his hammer out in a line target in front of him, damaging all enemies in the path of the hammer.

Tectonic Rift

  • Thor slams his hammer into the ground, creating a fissure where the Earth rips up from the ground, slowing enemies and creating an impassable barrier.

Berserker Barrage

  • Thor spins his hammer wildly damaging all enemies in a close area around him. He is immune to pop-ups and slows for the duration of the ability.

Anvil of Dawn

  • After a brief buildup, Thor flies up into the air. From there, he is able to select a distant ground target where he comes crashing down, doing damage and stunning any enemies in the radius.
