And that date is March 2014. After well over a year of beta testing, patching, god revamps, game mode redesigns, tons of art changes and a parade of interviews with Todd Harris, SMITE is finally approaching gold status. The god-based MOBA from Hi-Rez Studios is slated for the full monty on Tuesday, March 25, 2014.
To celebrate the watershed moment for Hi-Rez Studios, the company is organizing a hefty $100,000 purse for a LAN launch tournament. The tournament will take place the weekend following launch, from March 29-30 with four qualified teams from Europe and America making the cut. For more on the tournament, and all tournaments for SMITE, you can point your browser to the dedicated eSports page.
This gives players new and old a clear end game for earning that Cacodemon Ymir skin. You’ve got about four months, slacker. And if you’re missing that critical thinking part of your brain, this also means that no data will be reset at launch.
We’ll see you and the other 2.5 million and counting registered players on March 25, 2014.
