Smite is a free-to-play online battleground between gods where players choose from a selection of mythical gods, join session-based arena combat, and use custom powers and team tactics against other player-controlled gods and non-player controlled minions.

SMITE is an online battleground between mythical gods.  

SMITE is similar to DotA games but with a few significant changes including a third-person perspective and WASD movement.  Players choose from a selection of gods, join session based 5 versus 5 arena combat, and use custom powers and team tactics against other players and minions.

Independent electronic music label Monstercat announced in partnership with Hi-Rez Studios’ SMITE, a new collaborative Battle Pass launching in-game May 18, 2021.

The iconic sounds of electronic artists Slushii, Sullivan King, Noisestorm, and Koven have inspired the brand new Monstercat Battle Pass, bringing four character skins, music themes, and more to the SMITE universe.

"This collaboration really brings Monstercat's music and artists to life in SMITE, with authentic audio and special touches Monstercat fans will love. There's something magical about hearing a sick Slushii drop perfectly timed to a burst of damage." said Hi-Rez Studios Senior Brand Director of Live GamesAlex Cantatore.

Within the Monstercat Battle Pass, Slushii’s skin transforms Hades, the Greek King of the Underworld, into a DJ with a set of turntables and Monstercat-themedspeakers, while Egyptian scarab god Khepri becomes a dancing crab in a skin inspired by Noisestorm’s “Crab Rave.” Each skin features music from the artist throughout the gameplay experience, replacing ability sounds with drum & bass, tropical house, and more.

The Monstercat Battle Pass also contains four full Music Themes, allowing players to completely replace SMITE’s default soundtrack with Monstercat tracks. Choose from the forthcoming Slushii track “Valhalla,” the Gold-certified internet classic “Crab Rave” by Noisestorm, the romantic liquid drum & bass of Koven’s “Give You Up,” or the heavy-hitting grit of Sullivan King’s “Someone Else.”

“We're excited for players to directly engage with our artists and experience their music through these unique integrations launching inside the SMITE universe. Each of the skins in the Monstercat Battle Pass are authentically aligned with the artist's brand and the game's creative elements, a synergy we strive for in all of our partnerships,” commented Monstercat’s Head of GamingGavin Johnson.

Fans of Monstercat and the artists will find even more fun surprises to explore in the Battle Pass. Purchasers can replace the game’s default announcer with Sullivan King’s sultry growls, or launch firework-style dancing crabs into the air. Thematic elements of Monstercat’s whimsical Lost Civilization origins story can also be seen throughout the game.

Smite is available for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC.
