SMITE – How to Link Your Account to STEAM !

The SMITE team has been working incredibly hard on a HUGE project to help streamline Hi-Rez account management and logging into SMITE (specifically through Steam), and I’m pumped to share the details with you.

Starting on October 11, users playing SMITE through Steam will be prompted to link their Hi-Rez account to their Steam account. Linking your accounts allows us to better integrate with Steam, and sets us up for some really cool features we have planned:

  • Eliminating the need to log in via a launcher on Steam
  • Simplifying account creation for new users playing through Steam
  • Integrating your Steam friends list into SMITE
  • A new, all-in-one, linking page: Log in and immediately see what your account is linked to (Steam, Mixer, Twitch, Xbox, PS4, etc.)
  • Plus, this new functionality put us in a direction to implement… wait for it… Cross-platform play! *fingers crossed*

Here are the details on when all of this is going down:

  • Pre-linking Phase: October 8 – November 4
    • Players playing via Steam will be prompted to link their Steam and Hi-Rez accounts upon logging in.
    • We strongly encourage players to link during this time, but it will not be mandatory.
  • Full Steam Linking integration: November 5
    • Players playing via Steam will be prompted to link their Steam and Hi-Rez accounts upon logging in.
    • Linking is mandatory, and failure to complete the process correctly could lead to account issues.

Now, I know you’ve got some questions. Check out this Steam Linking FAQ below for more details.


I don’t play SMITE through Steam. Do I have to do anything?

Nope! Players that use the SMITE stand alone launcher do not need to link their Steam and Hi-Rez accounts.

Can I link my Steam account to multiple Hi-Rez accounts?

No, only one Hi-Rez account can be linked to a Steam account.

Do I have to link my Steam account to a Hi-Rez account?

Ultimately yes. Starting November 5, all players playing through Steam will need to link their Hi-Rez and Steam accounts in order to continue playing.

I have multiple Hi-Rez accounts. How do I use them while playing through Steam?

You will need to link your other Hi-Rez accounts to new Steam accounts to continue using them through Steam. Alternatively, players can download the stand alone SMITE launcher to log into secondary accounts.

Oh no! I linked the wrong Hi-Rez account to my Steam account. What do I do?

If you have linked an undesired Hi-Rez account to your Steam account, or vice-versa, please file a support ticket here and one of account management specialists will assist you.
