The showcase highlighted these three titles in an online event and shared some key updates for these titles.
“2020 was a huge year for Hi-Rez Studios and our development teams, with the massively successful launch of Rogue Company, plus record years for both SMITE and Paladins,” said Stew Chisam, Hi-Rez Studios CEO in a press release. “With 2021 calendars for each game full of content updates, Hi-Rez Studios will continue to deliver world class gaming experiences for our growing millions of fans.”
For example, 2020 was Smite’s best ever year for the mythical MOBA. This year’s Season 8: Dawn of Babylon will feature an all-new evolving Babylonian pantheon Conquest map (first in 3 years), new Gods (including Tiamat and Gilgamesh), new battle passes, new collaborations and plenty more esports action throughout the year.
Rogue Company will see four seasons of cross-play shooter action this year; each featuring new Rogues (including Kestrel), new maps (such as Hollows), new events and much more. Finally, Paladins will see more champions, more frequent updates, all-new limited time events, event passes, and more. The first Champion of the year will be the much-anticipated Yagorath - teased for years in Paladins lore this threat from beyond the Realm is bent on subsuming all life and existence.
