Hi-Rez Studios today announced a partnership with independent electronic music label Monstercat. The two companies are working on a new collaborative Smite Battle Pass.
The iconic sounds of electronic artists Slushii, Sullivan King, Noisestorm, and Koven have inspired the brand new Monstercat Battle Pass. It brings four character skins, music themes, and more to the Smite universe.
“This collaboration really brings Monstercat’s music and artists to life in Smite with authentic audio and special touches Monstercat fans will love. There’s something magical about hearing a sick Slushii drop perfectly timed to a burst of damage,” says Alex Cantatore, Hi-Rez Studios Senior Brand Director of Live Games.
What’s included in the new Battle Pass?
Within the Monstercat Battle Pass, Slushii’s skin transforms Hades into a DJ with a set of turntables and Monstercat-themed speakers, while Egyptian scarab god Khepri becomes a dancing crab in a skin inspired by Noisestorm’s “Crab Rave.” Each skin features music from the artist throughout the gameplay experience, replacing ability sounds with drum and bass, tropical house, and more.
The Monstercat Battle Pass also contains four full Music Themes, allowing players to completely replace Smite’s default soundtrack with Monstercat tracks. Choose from the forthcoming Slushii track “Valhalla,” the Gold-certified internet classic “Crab Rave” by Noisestorm, the romantic liquid drum & bass of Koven’s “Give You Up,” or the heavy-hitting grit of Sullivan King’s “Someone Else.”
Fans of Monstercat and the artists will find even more fun surprises to explore in the Battle Pass. Purchasers can replace the game’s default announcer with Sullivan King’s sultry growls, or launch firework-style dancing crabs into the air. Thematic elements of Monstercat’s whimsical Lost Civilization origins story can also be seen throughout the game.

The Monstercat Battle Pass will become available for purchase in Smite on May 18. The full reveal of the crossover skins and more information about the Battle Pass will be broadcast live on twitch.tv/SMITEGame on April 28, at 3 p.m. EDT, during the Smite Update Show.
