The event will be live streamed and any interested players can find out more on the SMITE eSports page.

Finally, anyone who has taken part in the beta can carry their progress over to the live game when it launches with level 30 players being given an added bonus of the Cacodemon skin for the playable god Ymir. The beta us still  running and players can take part now.
