SMITE: Battleground of the Gods, a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game, has been setting the bar in its genre with over 40 million registered players, 120+ playable gods, and exceptional graphics. The game has gained significant popularity in the gaming world due to its commitment to innovation and a thriving community of dedicated players.

In January of 2022, SMITE partnered with Magic The Gathering for a crossover event, bringing together two of the most prominent names in gaming. This event was widely recognized for its attention to detail and seamless integration of the two universes. Players could acquire exclusive content featuring Magic The Gathering's planeswalkers, like Jace Beleren and Liliana Vess, which they could then use in the game. The event was consolidated by an incredible cinematic trailer, leading to a 52% increase in player activity on Steam alone. Besides partnering with Magic The Gathering, SMITE also partnered with the popular metal band, Slipknot, bringing all nine members into the game as playable characters.

Moreover, six new playable gods were released since January 2022, including the community’s popular requests like Lancelot and Shiva, and bold new additions like Maui and Surtr. SMITE's commitment to providing players with exciting new experiences and content is reflected in the game's success.

The SMITE World Championship, which took place in January for the first time in three years, was eagerly anticipated by the SMITE community, and tickets sold out in a few hours. The event was a tremendous success in the esports world, with over 1 Million Watch hours across multiple channels and thousands of players travelling from around the country to watch their favourite players competing. The tournament showcased the game's competitive esports scene, highlighting its commitment to creating a thriving community of dedicated players.

Overall, SMITE's success, commitment to innovation, and thriving community have earned it recognition and awards. The game's recent crossover event with Magic The Gathering and the success of the SMITE World Championship are just two examples of the game's impact on the gaming industry.
