It's not often that people get excited over arena FPS titles anymore since the popularity of games like Quake had quietened down. For Splitgate, it takes two huge franchises, Halo and Portal, as inspiration for its style and gameplay.
Splitgate is free-to-play and launches soon, but the big question is, will it be crossplay?
Will Splitgate Be Crossplay?
- Base Game 100% FREE
- 20+ Maps
- 15+ Modes
- Crossplay gaming
- Feature-filled matchmaking
- Ranked, Casual and Custom games
For a free-to-play title, the content available appears to be second to none and from initial impression over beta periods, the gameplay seems to back this up.
Making Splitgate a crossplay title was really a no-brainer. When there is no cost to entry, it allows players on any platform to team up and play together which enables the community to grow that little bit stronger.
Splitgate Release Date
Splitgate is currently set to release on 27 July following multiple open beta periods. Their most recent beta experience was so popular that it had to be shut down early due to the stress on the servers which affected game performance.
They are hoping to have the beta live again soon before launch but time may be running out and it's possible certain optimizations need to be made.
Hopefully, come launch, these issues are resolved or extra resources are in place to help things run smoothly. No developer should suffer because they've created a game worth playing after all! The team behind Splitgate is only small, so they have repeatedly asked for patience and understanding from players who encounter issues.
