Free-to-play shooter Splitgate has launched it’s open beta on all platforms, PlayStation, Xbox and PC, and you can jump in to the action right now. Splitgate, which has been out on PC for a while and has recently been rebranded, is a FPS with portals, like the ones from, y’know, Portal.

You can grab the beta here:

The game will launch with an impressive amount of maps and boasts “tons of loadout options and almost endless fun skins”, but the beta will only have one of the twenty maps to play on.

“The maps include a research facility inside an active volcano, an underwater luxury hotel, an alien crash site, a futuristic treehouse, an abandoned mine, and much more. Each map has its own look and feel and plays differently, rewarding players for adapting their tactics in the fast-paced, portal-filled combat that only Splitgate offers,” say the developers, 1047 Games.

“As a kid playing Portal for the first time many years ago, I had the idea of putting portals into an FPS game,” adds Ian Proulx, co-founder and CEO of 1047 Game. “It was such an obvious idea to me that I worried a big studio would do it before I grew up and could do it myself.”

Here’s more from the press release:
Splitgate combines fast-paced multiplayer sci-fi shooter elements with player-controlled portals. It has been lauded by critics and fans alike for adding an entirely new dimension to the FPS genre. Splitgate has enjoyed a loyal and steadfast following of players, and with recently secured funding, the studio has substantially increased the production pipeline of in-game content, while adding several talented new team members to its roster of developers, and driving new players to the game via an aggressive new marketing campaign.
Along with grindable challenges, leaderboards, and over a dozen casual and competitive game modes, Splitgate launches with more than 20 maps, each with its own unique setting and play style. The maps include a research facility inside an active volcano, an underwater luxury hotel, an alien crash site, a futuristic treehouse, an abandoned mine, and much more. Each map has its own look and feel and plays differently, rewarding players for adapting their tactics in the fast-paced, portal-filled combat that only Splitgate offers.
Splitgate is releasing on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC with Cross-Play on July 27th.

  1. It’s got more than 1 map.

    Definitely worth a look. The whole portal thing works surprisingly well. It does lead to a lot of being shot from behind though, either by someone sneaking through a portal behind you, or worse, sneaking their bullets through a portal behind you.
