Yes, you read that headline correctly. Famous painter Bob Ross will soon be making his way to the MOBA Smite as part of a new character skin. The announcement was made recently on the Smite official website.
The official post on the Smite website says the following about Ross’ appearance in the game:
Ride atop a happy little Grover and fling paint at your enemies with the Exclusive Bob Ross Sylvanus Skin. Plus, unlock a Loading Frame that makes all card art appear as a painting and a paint splatter Jump Stamp!
Each bundle item was created by the Smite development team in close partnership with Twitch and the Bob Ross estate. This bundle is our tribute to the greatness of Bob Ross – undeniably one of the true Gods of painting.
If you somehow don’t know who Bob Ross is, then for starters, what is wrong with you? If you are unfamiliar with him, you can check out one of his painting videos below from his series The Joy of Painting to familiarize yourself with the man just a bit more. You’ll quickly find that his calm demeanor and kind personality will suck you in and lead you to watch him paint for hours on end.
The Bob Ross Bundle will be arriving next week on May 9 for PC and Mac Smite players and on May 16 for consoles. It will cost $9.99 on each platform or 700 in-game gems.
