Splitgate: Arena Warfare Releases on PC as a Free-to-Play Title on May 22

Splitgate: Arena Warfare finally has a release date and it's coming sooner than you might think.

The “Halo meets Portal” multiplayer shooter Splitgate: Arena Warfare finally has a release date and will be coming soon to a PC near you.

As announced by developer and publisher 1047 Games recently, Splitgate is finally set to release just a few weeks from now on Wednesday, May 22. It’ll be available exclusively on PC and will able to be downloaded through Steam. Best of all, if you’re looking to get in on the action for yourself, the game will be available entirely for free, meaning that you won’t have to spend a dime of your own money simply to play.

For those unfamiliar with Splitgate: Arena Warfare, it is an arena multiplayer shooter similar to Halo that also allows you to shoot portals onto certain walls which you can then travel through. If you’re crafty enough with your portal traversal, you can get the drop on opponents or kill them from angles you’d otherwise never be able to in other multiplayer shooters.

While I wasn’t that hot on Splitgate when I got to check it out just a couple months back, I’m interested in seeing how the game grows from here once it launches. With a stable user base, I think Splitgate has the chance to be successful, but I’m wondering if those who try it out at launch will continue to come back to it time and time again. The multiplayer space is pretty competitive right now, so I’m intrigued to see how this will perform.

To hold you over until release, you can check out a new trailer for the game below.
