Big things coming

Hi-Rez had a lot to share with fans of their projects today via their Hi-Rez Showcase. The presentation featured a look at what's in the works for Rogue Company, SMITE, and Paladins. You can see a video recap of all the features below.









SMITE - 2020 was the best ever year for Hi-Rez Studios’ incredibly popular mythical MOBA. This year’s Season 8: Dawn of Babylon will be even better, with an all-new evolving Babylonian pantheon Conquest map (first in 3 years), new Gods (including Tiamat and Gilgamesh), new battle passes, new collaborations and plenty more esports action throughout the year.

Rogue Company - With a blockbuster 2020 launch (gaining over 15 million players) Hi-Rez Studios’ newest title will enjoy four seasons of cross-play shooter action this year; each featuring new Rogues (including Kestrel), new maps (such as Hollows), new events and much more.

Paladins - The 45+ million players of the fantasy team-based shooter sensation can look forward to even more content this year in Season 4: Calamity. 2021 will see more champions, more frequent updates, all-new limited time events, event passes, and more. The first Champion of the year will be the much-anticipated Yagorath - teased for years in Paladins lore this threat from beyond the Realm is bent on subsuming all life and existence.

Paladins "Eternal Pyre" Battle Pass now available, 2021 plans set to be revealed in tomorrow's Hi-Rez Showcase

"Angels descend into the Realm as Paladins’ plans for the year are revealed."

ATLANTA – JANUARY 6 – Today Paladins: Champions of the Realm launched its new major content update named Eternal Pyre.

Paladins’ Eternal Pyre Battle Pass is now out and unlocks four new Exclusive Skins straight from the Realm’s heavens, plus a darker Recolor for each.

All gold and blue and angelic wings come Eternal Retribution Koga, Eternal Conflict Jenos, and Eternal Conflict Lian—guarded as always by Khan with his Eternal Guardian skin.

The Battle Pass also features a hundred more thematic rewards such as Chests, Avatars, Loading Frames, and more.

Tomorrow on January 7 – Hi-Rez Showcase
The playerbase of Paladins continued to grow in 2020 and is now over 45 million strong. Even more content is set to hit the Realm in 2021 with the game’s update cycle picking up the pace from a quarterly to a bimonthly basis.

The community reaffirmed how much they loved new Champions—especially with the latest recruit Vora greeted with unanimous excitement last October—and all will be thrilled to hear just who will join the Realm next year.

Evil Mojo Games is about to reveal that and much more tomorrow during Paladins’ next update show followed by the ‘Hi-Rez Presents’ keynote on twitch.tv/PaladinsGame at 3:30 pm EST. It will also include major new Season announcements for Rogue Company and SMITE.

The keynote comes as part of the company-wide online celebration Hi-Rez Showcase, also featuring the yearly Cosplay Contest, various panels, and more community fun, as well as esports thrills with the SMITE World Championships.

SMITE and Paladins Top 5 Plays for the week ending Dec. 25th, 2020

Gods, Goddesses, and Champions of the Realm!


Hi-Rez Studios has put together the latest installments of their Top 5 Plays videos for both Smite and Paladins. Check out what made the cut this time around in the videos above!

Hi-Rez Showcase announced for Jan. 7th, 2021, will include updates for SMITE, Rogue Company, & Paladins

Plus a $600,000 Prize SMITE World Championship!

Alpharetta, Georgia USA - 18 DECEMBER 2020: Hi-Rez Studios will be making explosive announcements for Rogue Company, SMITE and Paladins at their new online-only headline event ‘Hi-Rez Showcase’ on Thursday 7 January, including keynote reveals and unique panel sessions. In addition to revealing their huge 2021 plans, Season 7 of the SMITE Pro League World Championship (SWC) will reach its epic conclusion on Sunday 10 January.

The $600,000 prize pot is being contended by a global roster of incredible professional, semi-professional and amateur teams competing together across both PC and console. Viewership of the championship this year has rocketed 180% over 2019 thanks to intense rivalries, dramatic personal stories and epic gaming moments:

Breaking the Rival Curse
Ghost Gaming (formerly known as Team Rival) has come in second place at SWC for three consecutive years: Season 4, Season 5, and Season 6. Neither they, nor team member Ben “CaptainTwig” Knight (who has competed in every World Championship) have ever lifted the winner’s trophy. Will January see them finally lift the Hammer and break the “Rival Curse”?

Sanguine Esports: The LATAM Underdogs
Will Sanguine Esports’ incredible run take them all the way to the trophy? Having shattered expectations in the this year’s league - achieving a #1 ranking in the first half of the championships and currently placing #3 - all eyes will be on this talented LATAM team.

SWC Wildcards: Amateur Team Upsets the Whole Semi-Pro Bracket
Having completely upset the North American SWC Wildcards bracket to earn a place at the championships, amateur console players Mind The Gap will see if they can dominate their PC rivals using SMITE’s clever crossplay.

Going for the Threepeat: iRaffer & Adapting
Former teammates Craig “iRaffer” Rathbone (support for Spacestation Gaming) and Kennet “Adapting” Ros (jungler for Radiance) are both vying for their third World Championship win. Having both been active in SMITE esports since 2014, many believe this will be their last SWC - if that’s true, they’ll both be looking to beat the other to the top spot.

Many of these stories will reach their epic conclusion on 10 January. Season 8 will then usher in a new era of the SMITE Pro League, with Hi-Rez Studios revitalising the structure by bringing all eight Pro League teams in-house. This will give teams and players many more opportunities for direct sponsorship and increased revenue. Among the updates are:

- Teams will have all-new names and branding.
- Player & coach salaries will be completely standardised and will increase significantly from the base salary requirements in Season 7.
- Teams / players will have the opportunity to secure their own sponsorships to further supplement their base income.
- Hi-Rez will also offer 100% revenue sharing to the players on all sales of merchandise or in-game items for their team, effectively cutting out the “middle man” and allowing players to reap the full benefits of their promotional efforts.
