Some Smite players want 'new HUD' back on consoles after it got axed due to performance issues
Smite recently received the v10.3 Season of Hope patch that brings bug fixes to the UI, item store, localization, general gameplay, and much more.
Some quality-of-life updates were introduced to the game as well. Along with this, the HUD (head up display) got completely redesigned in terms of Art, Engineering, and Design.
However, the modified HUD was disabled soon after its release and gamers are unhappy.
Some Smite players want ‘new HUD’ back on consoles
According to reports (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10), multiple players are demanding that new HUD be brought back to Smite. The newly introduced HUD got recently disabled by the developers due to technical issues.
It has been alleged that the HUD was ported from the PC version of the game and was not controller friendly at all. Due to this, console players faced difficulties in navigating and purchasing items from the in-game store.
One of the players says that they liked the new god icons in the chat feed and the decisecond counter on the cooldowns and want the HUD back in the game.
Another gamer is also of the view that the new HUD should be tweaked and re-introduced to the game.
I wasn’t able to vote but PLEASE keep the new HUD and just make necessary tweaks
missing the new smite hud hours.
Some even suggest that an option to toggle between the new and old HUD could be provided in the game.
A survey conducted by the developers also shows that a section of players want the newly introduced HUD to stay in the game.
We hope that Hi-Rez Studios listens to player feedback and brings back the new Smite HUD on consoles or at least lets them toggle between the old and new HUD.
Having said that, we’ll keep tabs on this topic and update this article as and when something noteworthy comes up.
