Cthulhu brings madness to Smite: The Battleground of the Gods next month
The Great Dreamer has awakened! Cthulhu has lain submerged and sleeping in his watery tomb for untold aeons. But soon, cthulhu will enter Smite: The Battleground of the Gods, to spread madness and fear! Who is this eldritch deity, and how does he fit into the world of Smite? Read on for an exclusive early look in Cthulhu’s creation, and find out what awaits you when he arrives this June!
Who is Cthulhu?
Cthulhu is the Great Dreamer and the High Priest of the Great Old Ones. He is the gateway to a set of cosmic entities with unfathomable power. They have existed for aeons, likely coming into being before our currently known universe.
Even as Cthulhu sleeps in the underwater prison of R’yleh, his power seeps into every shred of life on Earth, causing discomfort and despair. He will soon awaken, and the Gods of Smite will be tested like never before.
We want Smite’s Cthulhu to stay true to his literary depiction, while making him a fierce and intimidating monster – an iconic part of his modern interpretations.
Our top priority on Cthulhu’s visual design was to ensure he was immediately recognizable as Cthulhu, while still adding a Smite twist to him. We wanted to make our own Cthulhu, while not taking anything away from his historical depiction.
Cthulhu has a strong description in the original works that we constantly kept in high regard during his iterations. Additionally, his popularity for modern adaption added many more expectations for the character that we needed to meet.
At first we experimented with this god, trying to push the boundaries of his animalistic elements, especially in his body and posture. Ultimately we felt that these were too much of a deviation from his roots.
We honed back in on his most infamous characteristics while augmenting his humanoid body with more crustacean carapaced elements. We also developed an element of asymmetry in his forearm to push him even further into monster territory and add more visual interest.
After a few color passes we had our final Cthulhu! The entire team is thrilled with his visual design, and he looks undeniably impressive in game.
Cthulhu is large and magical by nature, so he fit into the Guardian Class for Smite. His evil themes led to abilities that were rather aggressive. Cthulhu will likely excel in the Solo lane and possibly the Duo lane. He is capable of mitigating a huge amount of damage, and can lock down many enemies while dealing out decent damage.
