Smite’s New Update Heavenly Light Brings Queen of Cards Izanami

HurtIzanami’s new ultimate skin reward, Queen of Cards, arrives on Xbox today with a mix of diversion and panache.

This is no ordinary skin – it’s what we call a “Level 5” skin, representing the pinnacle of Hurt skin skin and serves as the final reward for our new Heavenly Light event. Queen of Cards Izanami has four unique shapes, each inspired by a card game and the corresponding tarot symbology, making it a stacked deck. When Izanami uses her ability to “Fade”, this impressive skin will switch between all four of her forms, each of which is functionally an entirely separate skin. Additionally, the Queen of Cards has a special bonus: a emote that evolves as you complete quests built into the skin, unique to each of the suits she can assume. Every time you get a kill or an assist while playing Izanami, you’ll draw four cards; if all four match, an upgraded emote for your current form will be permanently unlocked.


As you play the Heavenly Light event, you’ll join Mulan and Sun Wukong as they investigate mysterious ghosts in China, and you’ll get some awesome skins. The Heavenly Light event consists of four chapters, each with their own free bonus skin, such as Funny Bones Baron Samedi. Collect all the rewards in one chapter to get each bonus skin for free, and collect all the rewards in all four chapters to unlock Queen of Cards Izanami. Don’t you want to wait? You can instantly unlock the Queen of Cards Izanami skin and pre-order all future event skins with the Buy All button.

The Heavenly Light event is released as part of Hurt‘s Birthday Celebration, with free events and special savings to celebrate. Gem packs are up to 33 percent off and all players can unlock a variety of free rewards for participating in the game. Hurt Birthday celebration community calendar event. Log in and play now through April 5 to unlock a unique reward each day, ranging from community art-inspired cosmetics to free gems! You can even get Skadi’s exclusive Husky Handler skin for free through the birthday celebration event!

That’s not all we have for this next update: a swarm of little bots are hitting the battlefields with the Chibi Bots Battle Pass! So go out and conquer your enemies in one cute and compact package like Doom Bot Hades, Freezy Bot Ymir, Beaky Bot Thoth and Intruder Bot Cupid and unleash the little fury of these Chibi Bots! As usual, these four skins will become available as you progress through the Battle Pass, and we can’t wait to see these little terrors released onto the battlefield.


Last but not least, we’re excited to bring a long-requested update to the community: expanded custom game options, allowing you to play all sorts of fun new modes with your friends! When creating custom games, there are now a number of pre-saved presets to help as a starting point for the most common game modes, along with more competitive rulesets such as Competitive Conquest for Hurt Pro League and scrims, as well as the Ranked format. You can then customize each preset with a host of fun new options, like adjusting mana costs, cooldown reduction, and more. We can’t wait to see how they use all of these options to design fun new personalized experiences.

With that, I hope to see everyone returning to the battlefield soon, and be sure to practice your card counting, or the Queen of Cards may catch you off guard.
