We are so excited to announce a full lineup of SMITE, Paladins and SMITE Tactics esports events, featuring over 24 teams from around the globe, to be held at Dreamhack Valencia on July 13-15.
The multi-day gaming festival in Valencia, Spain, marks the Studio’s largest-ever esports event in Europe. Highlighting the announcement is the first-ever Paladins Console Wars. The $50,000 tournament creates esports history by squaring off the top Xbox One and PS4 teams from both Europe and North America to crown the top Paladins team across console platforms.
Also highlighting Hi-Rez’s Dreamhack Valencia 2017 line-up will be major tournaments for SMITE PC, Smite Console, Paladins PC and SMITE Tactics. The SMITE Pro League Summer Finals features the top eight teams from the North American and European SMITE PC Pro Leagues, along with teams from other select international leagues to be announced soon. The SMITE Console League Summer Finals features three teams from the North American Smite Console League competing against Europe’s top SCL competitor. The event marks the first cross-region international LAN to be held on European soil in Smite Console League history. The Paladins Summer Premier brings the top eight PC Paladins teams from around the world to Spain, including representatives from the Americas, Europe, and other select international regions to be announced soon.
Also at Dreamhack Valencia, Hi-Rez Studios will hold its first-ever open LAN tournament for SMITE Tactics, the Studio’s turn-based, one-vs-one strategy game set in the same mythological universe as the hit MOBA, SMITE. A qualifier series will run in both the North American and European regions, with the top player from each qualifying for the number 1 and 2 seeds in the SMITE Tactics LAN. In addition, an open bracket tournament will be held onsite at DreamHack Valencia with the top two players qualifying for the finals bracket and main-stage competition. Additional details regarding the qualification path for each tournament will be announced soon at esports.smitegame.com, esports.paladins.com and www.smitetactics.com.
