Hi-Rez Studios has announced that its free-to-play, god-combat MOBA SMITE will officially launch March 2014.
The game will launch in both North America and Europe on March 25, 2014–at which point the game would have been in open beta for around a year. To celebrate the launch Hi-Rez will be hosting a $100,000 tournament in Atlanta on March 29, 2014 and March 30, 2014, which will see the top four North American and top four European teams from the SMITE Weekly Tournament events compete.
All progress in the current open beta will carry over to the game’s launch, the developer confirmed. Also players who reach level 30 before the game’s official launch will receive the Cacodemon skin for the playable god Ymir.
