Iconic characters from Netflix hit series to join video game Battleground of the Gods
Get ready for the Battleground of the Gods to turn Upside Down. Heroes and monsters from the Netflix Original Series, Stranger Things will be playable in the hit video game SMITE starting July 13th, 2021.
Through an all-new SMITE Battle Pass, fans of Stranger Things series will be able to play Eleven, Hopper, and two of the most famous and blood-curdling creatures from the series.
With the Stranger Things Battle Pass, SMITE players will wield the psychokinetic powers of Eleven, brought to life as a high-fidelity skin for Scylla. Hawkins Police Chief Hopper can be played as Apollo, wearing his signature hat and carrying dual revolvers.
Players can also experience playing as the series’ legendary monsters in this epic collaboration. Bakasura, the Great Devourer, becomes Stranger Things’ Demogorgon, now hungering for souls to swallow whole. A nightmare incarnate, Mind Flayer Sylvanus is an uncompromising rendering of the iconic, unspeakable Upside Down creature.
Each skin is essentially a new character with brand new models, animations, and visual effects. An additional Prestige skin is available for both Eleven and Hopper, reflecting Eleven’s memorable Starcourt Mall jumper and Hopper’s infamous Hawaiian shirt from season three of the series.
Players will also unlock dozens of thematic items as they progress through the Stranger Things Battle Pass simply by playing SMITE. Free rewards include an Avatar, a Global Emote, and more. To gain access to all Stranger Things content, players can purchase the Battle Pass – instantly unlocking Hopper Apollo.
Stranger Things’ Upside Down dimension is also oozing into the portals of the Arena Map, SMITE’s most popular, fast-paced 5v5 game mode. Monsters, minions, props, walls, and floors have fallen victim to the otherworldly corruption – and the Mind Flayer looms over every battle from the skies above.
