ATLANTA, March, 26th. Hi-Rez Studios and Curse, Inc., today announced that all 3 SMITE Pro League Splits in Season 2 will be powered by Curse Voice.
After coming out of a very successful Season 1 with the SMITE World Championship this past January, (also powered by Curse Voice) the SMITE Pro League (SPL) now moves into its 2nd Season aiming to hold its place as one of the top eSports around the world. The tournament features the top six SMITE teams in both the North American and European regions.
As the Official Voice Provider of the SPL, Curse Voice will be the primary communications platform for all SMITE players. Additionally, any SMITE players who play 5 games using Curse Voice will receive a special “Curse Voice” skin for the SMITE god, Apollo. Details available here.
“Curse Voice continues to be a crucial tool for the SMITE community at all levels”, said Nabil Ismail, VP, Business Development of HiRez Studios, “with its ease of use and smooth integration with the game, our community has grown to love Curse Voice as their main means of communication between teammates and friends.

SMITE is the online Battleground of the Gods, a mythology-themed action game for the PC, and soon, XBox One, which is now in Alpha testing.
Since launching in Europe and North America in March, 2014, SMITE has quickly established itself as one of the Top 3 games in the rapidly growing MOBA genre, with over 6 million players. Themed around gods of mythology and offering a third-person camera and more game modes than any other leading game in its genre, the game provides a unique, action-packed experience that puts the player in the thick of the action.
