ArticlesRekt Zone: SplitGate [Beta]

Cody HowardSeptember 13, 2021

The “Free to Play” Splitgate beta has to be one of the best shooters I’ve ever played in recent years.

Splitgate has a halo feel mixed with a Portal (Valve) mechanic, taking this shooter game to new heights. Seeing what will surely end up becoming another memorable small indie game blowing up much like rocket league, the game is very simple and easy to learn, but as I noticed for some players it can be hard to master. The first match I ended playing I found myself at an easy 20+ kills and 6 deaths due to other players not utilizing the portal system. When both teams are shooting each other it is excellent with it’s surprise when someone on the other side of the arena all of a sudden finds themselves behind you.
That being said, it does leave a lot up for debate and discussion about the whole “new gameplay mechanics” we’re hearing all over the place from fans (and critics) who get tired after playing war games like Battlefield or Call Of Duty. This new portal mechanic is worth getting into as much as you can reasonably think of all the strategic placement by players that could make gameplay deeply complex for casuals of the shooter genre.
The splitgate beta is still ongoing as they have been working on server issues this past month, the game is slowly becoming a hit with streamers once they are able to jump in on console.
The splitgate beta is still ongoing as they have been working on server issues this past month, the game is slowly becoming a hit with streamers once they are able to jump in on console. (Much more easy to join a match on PC by the way) There are still a few players who have not  been able to join in, however this has not stopped the splitgates community blossoming, as streamers and youtubers keep playing. The community will continue to grow as it does now.
The splitgate beta has a testing battle pass that most free to play (and some paid) games have today. As of right now I don’t feel the pressure to spend any money for this pass like most games now try and tempt you to do, with a lot of good free unlockable skins just by playing and ranking up your custom character. I personally feel this is one of the best shooters in a while for gamers. So for those of you blossomed from the beta, you can now join the community, share your thoughts, and help out the staff with feedback as they prep the game for launch.
Splitgate is developed by 1047 Games & is out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, PlayStation 5, Microsoft Windows.
