Developer 1047 Games announces that Splitgate
has attracted more than
600,000 players in the week since the free-to-play arena shooter
entered open beta
. As a result, the beta is
being extended, and it sounds like it will run up until the official release of
the portal shooter on July 27th. Here's word on what to expect from next week's
Splitgate’s launch on July 27 includes three brand new, visually
striking arenas, a new gamemode called Showdown, dozens of new skins, new
loadouts and more. The studio recently announced it would be expanding ahead of
its flagship game’s launch this summer as it received $6.5 million in funding.
The funds will help the team continue to grow and deliver on an aggressive
content rollout and update strategy.
With grindable challenges, leaderboards, and over a dozen casual and competitive
game modes, Splitgate is a uniquely fast-paced shooter with player-controlled
portals, and poised to deliver a remarkable, polished and ultra-fun game for
fans around the world.
