In a surprise announcement, Smite is teaming up with popular Nickelodeon for new skins related to the Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra for players to use in the game. These skins will be available in a battle pass update, which you can expect to release sometime in July 2020. The exact date was not revealed in the video announcement, but we did get a good look at many of the skins players will be able to unlock if they do purchase it.
Because the Avatar: The Last Airbender battle pass is coming sometime in July, we can expect it to follow the current battle pass, the Final boss. That will wrap up on July 14. The new battle pass with the Aang, Zuko, and Korra skins will likely arrive immediately, or shortly after, this date. Aang will be an available skin for Merlin, Zuko will be an available skin for Susano, and Korra will be a skin for Skadi.
You can expect ward skins and global emotes to become available in the battle pass that all relate to the show. Hopefully, there’s a cabbage-based ward for everyone who needs to protect their cabbages.
Each of them will have a standard skin and a prestige option that come with altered cosmetics. For example, Aang’s standard skin will feature him in his traditional Airbender monk robes, riding around on his airball. In contrast, his prestige option features him in the avatar form with his airbending tattoos glowing. We don’t know how you need to go about unlocking these characters, or at what level they will be available on the battle pass.
The Avatar battle pass will 600 gems. You can purchase these from the store, the most straightforward purchase being 600 gems, plus 200 extra, for $14.99, for a total of 800. Alternatively, you can unlock them by logging in seven days in a row.
