The free-to-play multiplayer battler Smite is getting a new battle pass this July, and it includes an unexpected crossover. According to a recent announcement, the game is getting skins and cosmetics from the hit Nickelodeon shows Avatar: The Last Airbender and its sequel The Legend of Korra.
As the trailer reveals, the characters include Aang, Zuko, and Korra, as well as special variants for each, such as Zuko’s Blue Spirit Susano skin. Each character will correspond to an existing Smite god: Merlin as Aang, Susano as Zuko, and Skadi as Korra. Players will have to purchase July’s battle pass and play matches in order to unlock these cosmetics. More details about these crossover skins and the Avatar battle pass itself will be revealed on Smite’s Twitch channel this Wednesday, June 24 at 3 PM ET / 12 PM PT.
The current “Final Boss” battle pass for the game costs 600 gems, which is about $11. Gems can be earned through play alone, however. Smite recently added the Lovecraftian Old One Cthulhu to its roster earlier this month as part of Update 7.6, who has the ability to drive the game’s other heroes insane. As part of the Final Boss battle pass, Smite also introduced new skins for Hades, Baba Yaga, and Medusa. Additionally, Avatar: The Last Airbender is currently doing quite well as a newcomer to Netflix.
