Splitgate: Arena Warfare Overview
Splitgate: Arena Warfare is a fast-paced multiplayer shooter that uses player-controlled portals to create a new dimension of arena combat. Splitgate has been described as “Halo meets Portal.” It is both developed and published by indie studio 1047 Games and has been in Early Access on Steam since 2019.
Evoking memories of the most revered shooters of the past two decades, Splitgate: Arena Warfare embraces the classic and familiar feel of close-quarters combat while adding a multi-dimensional twist that adds a never-before-seen spatial wrinkle to the arena shooter setting. Battle against up to 10 friends in online multiplayer or refine your skills versus formidable AI.
Splitgate: Arena Warfare is designed to be equally accessible to both first-time and veteran FPS players, with an unlimited skill cap that will take players hundreds of hours to refine and master. Splitgate is built in Unreal Engine 4 by 1047 Games, a passionate group of Halo fans whose experience and love for the genre transcends the typical development team.
Season 3 of Splitgate has begun as of October 15, 2020 and included 6 new maps, a new competitive gamemode, a new social gamemode, and a new Arena Pass.
Fly. Flank. Frag.
Constant movement is encouraged and rewarded as players strategically place portals to FLY, FLANK and FRAG through the air to create incredible, previously-impossible highlights.
Competitive Ranking System
Splitgate’s ranking system matches players against competitors of a similar skill level. Climb through the competitive ranks, from the Bronze bracket to the Champion bracket. Do you have what it takes to be a Champion?
Equal Playing Field
Players start each match with the same loadout, eliminating any unfair advantages from the start. Power weapons spawn on timers across the map, and players are encouraged to use these powerful weapons to achieve montage-worthy killstreaks.
Easy to Learn, Difficult to Master
Standard FPS controls and intuitive portal mechanics mean beginners are up and running right off the bat. However, players must constantly evolve strategies and their ability to think with portals in order to outsmart their opponents. The skill cap is unlimited.
