2.5 million dollars is on the line this weekend, as players from all over the world face off against each other in Hi-Rez’s online arena game Smite. You can watch the god battles go down in real time.
The actual team-vs-team action starts at noon today, preceded by a preshow at 11 A.M. The prize pool for the Smite World Championships stands at $US2,596,143 with a first-place finish netting $US1,298,071 for the winning team. It’s not as big as, say, cash prizes for the DOTA International but still an impressive amount of money to win for a game in its first competitive season. You can see the full schedule of matches right here.
