If you're a fan of Smite, you probably already know about the Smite World Championship, which has just kicked off in Atlanta with a $1 million prize pool and a first prize of $500,000.
There are ten teams from around the world competing in the Smite World Championships, with EU champions Paradigm and US champions Cloud 9 entering the last eight of the contest. The other teams competing are Enemy, Epsilon, Fnatic, Avant Garde, Pain Gaming, Isurus Gaming, Oh My God B and Qiao Gu Reapers.
Hi-Rez, the publisher of Smite, usually makes new announcements for the game at the World Championships, with this year being no different. We have a few changes, including "the introduction of Daily Quests and a a 3v3 Joust League. A new Japanese pantheon of gods has also been unveiled, starting with Amaterasu, the Goddess of the Sun, who is playable starting Jan. 12 on PC and late February on Xbox One", reports Polygon.
