RWBY Crosses Over with SMITE in the MOBA’s Latest Battle Pass
The latest battle pass for SMITE features character skins, voice packs and more based on Rooster Teeth's RWBY.
Hi-Rez Studios’ SMITE remains an incredibly popular MOBA and is supported with consistent updates to this day, even as the company introduces new games like Rogue Company. The latest battle pass for SMITE is one of the most notable in a long time as Rooster Teeth’s popular show RWBY has taken over the battle pass’ contents.
Specifically, new skins will allow players to go into each match as Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Yang Xiao and Blake Belladonna while playing as Thanatos, Freya, Terra and Amaterasu, respectively. Even if these skins don’t change the powers of their respective characters, the crossover is more than just skins. New announcer and voice packs have been added and all of the voice actresses from RWBY have reprised their roles. In addition, RWBY music has been added to SMITE, a Ward skin based on Zwei is included and some global emotes based on the show are now available
While that’s a lot of new content from the get-go for RWBY and SMITE fans to sink their teeth into, the battle pass has even more longevity. If players do well enough, they can earn a prestige skin for Ruby based on her appearance in Chapters 1-3 as well as a Huntsman title. If you’re a fan of RWBY looking for a good excuse to sink your teeth into a new multiplayer game, now definitely seems like the best time for you to join SMITE.

This cross over is just RWBY’s latest foray into gaming, something that has drastically increased over the past couple of years. Outside of the mobile games, RWBY: Grimm Eclipse, an action game set in the world of the show, released for PC in 2016 and consoles in 2017. RWBY entered the fighting game space by taking up a portion of BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle roster, and now this SMITE crossover has introduced the series to the MOBA space. It will definitely be interesting to see what game and genre RWBY rears its head in next.
