Splitgate: Arena Warfare on Steam Review

1047 Games has officially released the fast-paced, sci-fi, competitive multiplayer first-person shooter Splitgate: Arena Warfare. Free to download and play now on Windows PC via Steam, Splitgate uses player-controlled portals to create a new dimension of arena combat.

Splitgate evokes your favorite memories of gaming’s most-revered shooters, embracing the classic feel of close-quarters arena action with a multi-directional twist. Create portals strategically around the map to cross huge distances and outmaneuver your foes in the blink of an eye. Designed with intuitive controls for both FPS newcomers and veterans to pick up and play, Splitgate’s near-limitless skill cap lets you pull off jaw-dropping, gif-worthy plays once mastered, rewarding constant jetpack movement, flanking and 360-degree ambushes.

Made with futuristically stylish visuals in Unreal Engine 4, Splitgate features a variety of ranked, unranked and custom games. Battle with friends, against rivals at your skill level in ranked multiplayer, or versus formidable AI to hone your skills. Players start each match on an equal playing field with the same loadout, but power weapons spawn regularly throughout the map to fuel your next killstreak.

Splitgate: Areana Warfare is a new take on portal re-positioning or tactical flanking, but I found many people used it to confuse their enemies and get the upper hand. For the most part this is a great game. There were no glitches and very little problems when playing. The one issue I did find when playing is that until you  reach level five, you can't match-make with other real people, you match-make with other beginners and bots, which is a good way to separate veterans and beginners, but it takes a while to find a match. 

Another small issue I found, for myself,  is that I can't look through my teammates portal, only my own. I feel like if you could see through both then you would play more like a team and share advantage points. Other than that I enjoyed the game very much and it was a blast to play.

Players can also purchase the special Splitgate: Arena Warfare Founder’s Edition, which includes cosmetic bonuses like the exclusive Dweller armor set, four additional Dweller skins, exclusive M90 weapon skin, five bonus SAW packs (which can be used to unlock other cosmetic items), and more for $19.99 on Steam.
