What Is Splitgate?
Developed by 1047 Games, Splitgate is a sci-themed first-person shooter that will soon be available for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. The full release date is set for Tuesday, July 27th, 2021.
Fans and critics are describing the popular FPS as “Halo meets Portal” as the new fast-paced shooter features player-controlled portals to add to the intense action already found in the title.
The beta launched back in May of 2019 and has since gone on to release a crossplay beta for all platforms this year. The recent crossplay beta reportedly increased the game’s player base to over 65,000 concurrent players and over half a million downloads.
Expected Release Time (Consoles & PC)
The developers of Splitgate recently took down the Splitgate Beta servers to prepare for the full release this Tuesday. Although an exact release time for the full version of Splitgate is yet to be announced, there is a big announcement set for around 12PM ET on July 26th.
Until then we only have speculation, the full release of Splitgate is likely to arrive at 12AM ET on July 27th, as the developers appear to work in the eastern timezone and took the servers down for the Beta at 12AM, meaning they may return at the same time on Tuesday, July 27th.
Should an official release time for Splitgate be announced, we will update this article.
Big Announcement & Battle Pass Details
Players have been able to level up their Splitgate Battle Pass during the duration of the open beta, but what happens to your Battle Pass when the full game releases?
