Experience the 2017 Hi-Rez Expo in Photos

This past weekend thousands of gamers and cosplayers converged on the Cobb Energy Center in Atlanta, Georgia to check out some new games from the studio that created SMITE, a popular 3rd person fantasy MOBA that is finding success as an esport.  We at ESS provided coverage from start to finish, with a lot of emphasis on the esports side of things and the $3 million SMITE World Championship tournament.

One can often get caught up watching the pro gaming action and miss the sheer spectacle of an event.  Looking back at photos helps to really round out the full convention experience- especially for those who were watching from home.
