Slipknot vs. Zeus: The legendary metal band enters the battlefield of the gods in Smite

The mosh pit is in the mid lane of the Battleground of Gods, thanks to the new Slipknot crossover event. Hurt has teamed up with world famous heavy metal band Slipknot to bring all nine members of the band to the game with a series of fantastic skins, available now for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

As all of our cross events in Hurt, this was a labor of love. Many of our developers are “worms”, the term for the Slipknot faithful. But perhaps no one is as fanatical as our audio lead Kellen Malone, who asked me to pass him this note:

“As a Slipknot fan for over 22 years, working with Slipknot has truly been a surreal experience. Helping to put Slipknot and their music on Hurt It has been a passion project and a high point in my career that I will never forget. Slipknot went further with the clown recording sounds that we incorporated into our sound effects. The team at Titan Forge put in a monumental effort to make this a reality and many longtime Slipknot fans worked on it. Stay mental.”

All items are also available in a chest. Unlock three cosmetics to get the Slipknot theme song and rock out on the battlefield with snippets of the songs “Duality”, “Psychosocial” and “The Devil In I”. There’s no better time to shop than now—there’s a gem sale running through May 30!
