Dark Horse Comics has announced plans to adapt the SMITE: Battleground of the Gods video game into a comic book, beginning with SMITE: The Pantheon War.

It is an age where gods live among the mortals over which they rule. The worship of mortals is needed by the gods to maintain their divinity—but the number of gods has swelled, and there are fewer mortal faithful for the individual gods in each pantheon. Only the gods who maintain worshipers will survive, and so tensions are rising among the pantheons. There is an uneasy peace…but peace is not desired by all!

SMITE: The Pantheon War will collect the three-part digital series and is written by John Jackson Miller, Jack Banish, with art by Eduardo Francisco. The book is scheduled to arrive on December 28, 2016 with a $14.99 cover price.
