Smite’s Latest Game Mode is… Go Karts?

Hi-Rez Studios has announced a brand new mode for their competitive MOBA, Smite, which will see the game’s various gods racing in go karts.

Yep, from now until May 9, players can choose their favourite gods and go racing in the new Apollo’s Racer Rumble mode. This cutesy seasonal event looks to be quite nonsensical which is quite nice given the often serious aspect of games like this (at least in the competitive community, anyway).

There are two tracks available for players to put the pedal to the metal, the first bring Elysium Beach, and another on Molten Pass. The mode also supports upto eight players online as well as offering several power-ups or Relics throughout the track to give players an advantage.

The karts also accelerate automatically which is nice.

I wish I was joking, but this is actually a thing that’s happening right now, check it out in the trailer below:
