Slipknot Is Coming to Smite

Smite is no stranger to crossovers with things like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Stranger Things already in the MOBA, but this week, developer Hi-Rez Studios might’ve just revealed the most unexpected collaboration yet. The studio announced that Slipknot would be coming to the game via a collection of new skins for different gods as well as an event centered around the crossover. All of this is scheduled to come to the game on May 17th in the 9.5 update with patch notes released already previewing what’s to come.

For those who may have second-guessed themselves after hearing that Slipknot was the latest crossover, yes, this is Slipknot the band, not the DC hero. The members of the eccentric metal group will join Smite soon with nine total skins distributed between three different gods. Those skins can be seen below:
