SMITE’s sudden crossover with the Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra series is a welcome surprise. Each of the three characters has an interesting style to them that should make for varied gameplay among the SMITE roster. With the new battle pass for SMITE arriving in July 2020, it won’t be long before players get to explore an all-new series of free and premium rewards to unlock alongside the Avatar characters and skins. As such, be sure to check out the store in-game or on the SMITE website to earn or check out the current season’s goods.
SMITE and Avatar’s crossover wasn’t the only cool thing on the June 22 Summer Game Fest 2020 livestream. Be sure to check out the first reveal and launch date of Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time among the other reveals from the lengthy stream.

No Toph, No Deal, Twinkletoes.
I looked at the trailer, it's a poor implementation of the characters (not that it was ever going to be good given how SMITE is designed) so I'm not terribly sad, but having no Iroh or Toph seems like a bad call.
