Splitgate is a shooter which mixes Halo and Portal together for one unique PvP experience. It looks pretty neat and is heading to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on July 27.
As revealed by IGN, the free-to-play title will support cross-play and cross-gen, allowing all PC and console gamers to tear it up online. As mentioned, this looks to be a hybrid of two very popular franchises. On the Halo side we have all the traditional combat and game modes seen in its multiplayer, right down to a similar version of Capture the Flag. But perhaps the most exciting thing is the ability to shoot portals to teleport across the map.
These portals are not just for traversal, you'll also be able to shoot your way through them to gain the element of surprise on your foes. While it borrows a lot from other games, it looks to b a brand new take that we can't wait to get our hands on.
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.
An open beta is also planned for July 1-6, so you'll be able to get a hands-on with the game before its officially release. We never heard of this game until today, but with that crossover of genres, you can be sure we'll be checking it out when it drops.
