Today marks a big day for all Smite fans. The game has come a long way from the announcement back in April 2011 to the release today, March 25, 2014. To celebrate this momentous occasion, Hi-Rez Studios has prepared a new cinematic teaser trailer, a beta infographic and probably most impressively a $200,000 tournament.
The $200,000 launch tournament will be taking place on Friday, March 28 through Sunday, March 30, 2014. The tournament will be held in Atlanta, Georgia in front of a live audience. About half of the $200,000 prize pool has been contributed by the community (based on sales of exclusive in-game merchandise). The Launch Tournament includes the top four teams from both europe and North America. The teams have qualified from the SMITE Weekly Tournament Series that began on January 4, 2014. The tournament will be live-streamed on Smite’s official twitch channel.
