The late host of The Joy of Painting, Bob Ross is coming to Hi-Rez Studios’ MOBA Smite next week, the studio has revealed.
Bob Ross will appear in the game as a skin for the existing character, Sylvanus. He will be armed with plenty of his trade marks, including happy trees and clouds. He will also come complete with brush, palette and easel. Sylvanus’ Treant steed will be re skinned with a big smile and a bright green beard.
Sylvanus’ attacks will also be re-skinned to fit the Bob Ross character. He will throw paint at enemies and will also summon happy clouds and trees. Sylvanus’ ultimate ability will also be re-skinned. Instead of summoning deadly roots from the ground, an array of paint brushes will sprout from the ground and paint the ground with a scenic landscape.
Bob Ross will be a part of the Bob Ross Bundle which will be sold for $9.99 or 700 in-game gems. It will be released on Mac and Windows PC on May 9th and on console on May 16.
