Splitgate Arena Warfare Review
Posted: 5 months ago, last updated 3 weeks ago.
You play in online arena battles of teams of five. Along with accurate shooting, constant movement is encouraged and rewarded as you strategically place portals to gain the upper hand on enemies. Although this can take some time to get used to, Splitgate uses an online ranking system to match players against competitors of a similar skill level.
Rather than experienced players having the advantage with better weapons, all players start the match with the same guns and equipment. As is the way with classic shooting games, power weapons spawn on timers across the map, adding further layers of strategy to own and protect these choke points.
Currently released on PC and in beta on console.
