An old Christmas song says "'Tis the season to be Jolly". If you're a SMITE player, that's gonna be all more true this week. SMITE's 7 days of Saturnalia will start this wednesday and will last for a week. It will come with all sorts of goodies and sales that will make the community's heart grow three sizes. As it happened for many in-game events before, the 7 days of Saturnalia will bring discounted gods and skins as well as free gems. Let's look at it in detail.
The event will start wednesday December 16th to tuesday December 22nd on both PC and Xbox One. Every day of the event will feature one of the seven pantheons of the game. During each day, all gods and skins of the featured pantheon (with the exception of Odyssey skins) will be 50% off. The schedule is detailed below:
It doesn't end here. For the whole duration of the event, all voice packs will also be 50% off and you will earn double XP and worshippers. The most juicy element of the 7 days of Saturnalia (as it is for most of SMITE's in game events) is probably the free gems. You will earn 40 gems for the first win of the day each day. Note: it's not 40 gems for the first win in every mode, but 40 gems once a day. Still, it's 280 free gems in the span of the whole event and that's nothing to frown upon.

Hi-Rez closes the year by giving to its users another appreciated event. A good way to wrap up the 2015 in preparation of the adding of the Shinto pantheon next year.
