Portal-Inspired Shooter Splitgate Headed to Current-Gen and Last-Gen Consoles With Cross-Play

Developer 1047 Games has announced that its free-to-play multiplayer shooter Splitgate will release on July 27th for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. The game, which first released on PC in 2019, will feature cross-play across all platforms.

Inspired by games like Portal and Halo, Splitgate features sci-fi combat in arenas where players can create portals and shoot through them. 1047 Games has specifically designed Splitgate for veteran FPS players and newcomers alike, making it easy to pick up but requiring effort to master.

Splitgate features both casual and competitive modes, over 20 maps, and different settings and play styles. This living game has been changing and growing a lot since its initial release. The developer is hard at work with an increased production pipeline of content and growing the player base through new marketing campaigns to raise awareness. Of course, the wider release on consoles certainly won’t hurt.

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.

An open beta is planned for July 1 through 6. Splitgate releases on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4 with full cross-play including PC on July 27th.
