The SMITE Masters tournament will be taking place at the Dreamhack Summer 2016 event in Jönköping, Sweden and Hi-Rez is celebrating with a limited time Viking Invasion event. From now until June 5th, PC players can purchase the Viking Invasion pass from the in-game store. This will give them access to limited items and special quests as well as two Viking-themed skins for Chaac and Kali.
This news follows swiftly on the heels of Hi-Rez Studios’ president Stew Chisam announcing that the game has reached a new player high of over 20 million.
