Hi-Rez Studios has just revealed a new competition/reality show in the works by the makers of SMITE and Paladins. The Caster is a competition where the top 10 contestants will battle for the role of the next great eSports announcer. The contestants, both amateur and professional, will be pitted head-to-head in an eSports casting competition with the winner walking away with a $10,000 cash prize and a chance to be behind the mic at Hi-Rez Expo 2018, the annual esports world finals for SMITE and Paladins.
Submissions for the show are now open and will close on April 10, 2017. Audition videos will be carefully reviewed by Hi-Rez staff and the top 10 contestants will be invited to Alpharetta, GA to compete in person. A good caster will have the ability to analyze a game, but also the enthusiasm and conversation skills to entertain the audience.
The competition is open to anyone with a passion for video games and esports announcing, and amateurs are encouraged to apply. Hi-Rez Studios casters represent all games created by Hi-Rez Studios, including SMITE, Paladins, and SMITE Tactics. Anyone interested in competing can go to TheCaster.TV to apply.
