Splitgate Open Beta

The promised open beta is now underway for Splitgate, offering the chance to try this free-to-play arena first-person shooter in advance of its official launch on July 27th. The beta is available for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox, as one of the features that's being tested is crossplay support. You can get started on the Splitgate Website. Check out the new Open Beta Trailer for a look at why this is described as "Halo Meets Portal." Read on for more:
The totally free Splitgate beta includes a sneak peek at one of the new maps coming at launch on July 27, a limited-time beta battle pass with 10 free tiers of unlockables available to earn only during beta, a new gamemode called Showdown, and more. Fans are able to hone in on their skills ahead of launch and gear up for the only game to offer competitive and fast-paced multiplayer gameplay with the totally unique twist of player-controlled portals.

With grindable challenges, leaderboards, and over a dozen casual and competitive game modes, Splitgate launches later this month 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.
