David “Allied” Hance, professional Smite player and caster, passed away this afternoon at 25 years old after a year-long battle with cancer, according to a post by LeafreTV, a colleague and friend.
Development has halted on Smite Rivals, the collectible card arena game for PC and mobile devices. Hi-Rez Studios says the project has been put on hold in order to focus on the original Smite and its successful first spin-off, Smite Tactics.
Coming to Smite with the season four update, Such Cold Skadi is a premium skin that is bad and everyone who made it should feel bad.
Hi-Rez Studios’ 2017 celebration of itself kicks off today in Atlanta, making it the perfect time to reveal one of Smite’s coolest gods yet, The Morrigan, and a third (that’s right, third) game in the mythology battles franchise, Smite Rivals.
Smite, Hi-Rez Studios’ deity-based MOBA, is normally all about putting the hurt on a team of opposing players. In the special Xing Tian’s Mountain mode, launched this week as part of the 201 Odyssey event, players go on an MMO-style raid encounter. Weird, but good.
Reader LouTheVI points out that Smite’s been having some server problems this weekend. Also a slight tact problem. Servers should be up and running now, bitches.
Pro Smite streamer and commentator Brandon “DM Brandon” Nance is resigning from his position with developer Hi-Rez Studios after reacting to a viewer’s donation message with a acerbic rant about suicide and depression.
Hi-Rez Studios kicks off a week of second anniversary shenanigans in its god-powered multiplayer online battle arena with an open invitation to PlayStation 4 owners to play. Plus daily special events, some dancing, and a ridiculously low price on every character in the game.
Now that last month’s Smite World Championship presented by Xbox One is good and done, it’s time for Hi-Rez Studios to bring its god-based third-person MOBA to not-so-greener game consoles. Closed beta for the PS4 version of Smite kicks off next month.
Titan had all the potential in the world, but they were never able to capitalize on it. Cheating-related troubles punctured their boat back in 2014, and now the org’s founder is claiming they ultimately capsized it. And yet, fans seem more mournful than angry.
The first god in the Japanese pantheon launched in deity-powered MOBA Smite today, and while she might not be the Amaterasu many gamers are familiar with, she’s just as fierce.
The idea behind Jetpack Fighter, the first mobile game from the makers of Smite, might be a hard to grasp. See, you’re this fighter, and you’ve got a jetpack. Still following?
These five gentlemen, collectively known as team Enemy, clawed their way into the 2016 Smite World Championship grand finals only to lose three straight games to Europe’s Epsilon, letting all of North America down. As punishment, they only get $230,000. I blame myself.
North American underdogs Enemy, a team that didn’t technically exist until halfway through the competitive season, just defeated European champions Paradigm three games to one to advance to tomorrow’s grand finals of the 2016 Smite World Championships.
The quarterfinals of the 2016 Smite World Championship passed in a flash of four swept best-of-three matches, including the brutal but not unexpected elimination of both Chinese teams and the boys from Brazil.
The goal in a Smite Conquest match is to kill enemy players, destroy their fortifications and eventually take down the titan guarding their base. In the first match of the 2016 Smite World Championship, one team accomplished none of those things.
Ten of the top Smite teams from around the world have converged on Atlanta to see which one plays the deity-based MOBA well enough to earn $500,000 doing so. Here’s what to expect.
The ultimate unlock in Smite’s 2016 World Championship-funding Odyssey is finally live, and I get a chance to put Ragnarok Force X Thor through his paces.
Smite’s “Ultimate God Pack,” which gives you every character currently in the game plus any future characters Hi-Rez adds to it, is going on sale tomorrow for $20. I highly recommend it if you have any interest in the game. Except for Dota 2 (which makes every hero free), this is easily the best deal in any MOBA.
A week’s worth of competitive Smite play at Hi-Rez Studio’s in-house esports arena has come to an end, resulting in three European and two North American teams taking trips to Atlanta this January.
