And here's her actual reveal video.
All right, let's work on those character pages immediately! My two cents:
It's on Switch and will have Cross Platform.
Also we know who would be the Gods number 99-101, but let us start from 101 and count backwards.
It's... Jormungandr... Merlin... King Arthur.
Big ol' newspost here - most notably, the next two gods are Arthur and Merlin. After them is Jormungandr, then Horus & Set (which I think sounds like they'll arrive at the time, "for Smite's birthday").
Also, there's a free bundle available to claim.
Arthur and Merlin were speculated, but I really didn't expect them to be happen because they aren't as popularly known as mythology (but they basically are, because come on, there's a story wherein a guy puts his severed head back on his body and Da King himself is supposed to return in British's greatest hour of need. Also, King Arthur may be a lot like Guan Yu in that he was a real person who's gotten far part his original life).

i'm so used to Fate's version of authurian myth that im very curious what they'll do with authur and merlin
Indeed I'm so used to by Fate that the mere existence of an actually masculine Arthur & Merlin with facial hair is bewildering to me now.
Huh this should be fun.
Yeah sorry folks, no Fate/stay Night skins yet confirmed.
...but if they made stuff like magical girl Neith, I wouldn't put it past them.
Yeah they haven't done a Lancer skin for Cu yet right?
this year turned into the "EVERY MYTHOLOGY IS HERE" for smite
Don't think so.
DENTON CONFIRMED FOR SMASH

Nah, they haven't added the one who likes to spam "MONGREL!!" into Smite.
Honestly, Mesopotamian/Babylonian Pantheon would be pretty dope.
Also it looks like after Jormungandr, we ARE getting Horus and Huegh—Ahem, Set. Finally.
Oh yeah, they're also adding role queuing for Conquest matches, lots of other stuff, and they gave Arena a facelift.
...the cross-platform is said to be sans-PS4 though. I guess there had to be bad news.
Meanwhile, I am proud to say that I finally finished the lore rewrite for the Greek Pantheon. Whew, only Egypt and Norse remaining.
King Arthur released.
Sadly, he lacks any sort of Monty Python and the Holy Grail references and is thus unplayable.
"Wielder of Excalibur" man that sounds clunky as fuck
"Once and Future King" is like, an actual title of his
I definitely would have preferred the latter. Perhaps Titan Forge felt it would emphasize how King Arthur logically could hope to stand against actual gods. (the scabbard would have really helped too though)
Unsurprisingly, the tale of the Once and Future (I guess he's Once and Current now then, actually...) King took a dramatically different by Titan Forge's reckoning compared to Thomas Malory's.
Man, Mordred is Lean and Mean AF.
The ending is Merlin going "Hey man there's a MILF in this thing offering me her hand!"

i'm actually surprised they have a set design for mordred
maybe a hint at a future character
Cross-play and progression comes next patch (...still not on PS4, sorry), along with role queuing for two roles, a new objective around solo lane, a health buff to all warriors, two alternative kinds for the Gold Fury, lots of other stuff I'm not going to write here because I'm not being paid to do this anyway...
A little bit on Merlin. His three stances are Arcane, Fire and Ice. His stance is changed with his ultimate, which is a level 0 free ability, gaining damage after being ranked up. Arcane provides his only hard CC and is best for wave-clear. Fire BURNS, at close range. No CC, just BURNINATE. Ice is long-range, spammy and slows, the siege-y stance. Two of his abilities will be determined by the stance, while his third ability for movement is completely separate from that whole stance thing.
I am also entirely certain now that the overarching goal for the Arthurian Pantheon's visual design was "Make more Gods people are likely to call daddy".
Okay, it's the 24th, but I can't play Smite in the Switch. What gives?
wait until around noon pst, nintendo likes making pre-ordered downloaded 3rd party games available around that time on days of release
If anyone wondered where the Camelot accents came from - King Arthur is Xander Mobus, and Merlin is Adin Rudd.
I somehow missed this from three days ago.
