Splitgate: Arena Warfare

Free-to-play arena shooter Splitgate is out on Steam today, giving everyone the chance to find out what Portal might have been like if it was Unreal Tournament with Halo’s guns.

That pretty much sums up the premise of Splitgate, and the game makes no effort to mask its influences, as Tyler discovered when he played an early build at PAX East last year. There’s the perspective-bending linked portals, there’s jetpacks and low-grav areas, and there’s punchy shotguns and big old rocket launchers.

The launch trailer (above) gives you a pretty good sense of how disorienting Splitgate can be, but it also gets the old brain cells churning at the tactical possibilities that Portal’s wormhole mechanics add to the high-speed arena shooter genre. Being able to constantly hurl yourself through space, changing your trajectory and sailing over opponents’ heads as you approach terminal velocity passing through portal after portal, ripping off consecutive headshots from the hip… it’s dizzying stuff, and I suspect that’s doubly true if, like me, you’re just about done packing up for the move out of your 30s.

But hey, if that sounds like the kind of trip you’re into, you can play it now for free on Steam.

Hey guys, just wanted to give an update.

I promise you this is not some sort of bizarre marketing stunt or something we had planned. The dev team has literally not slept for 3 days straight because we wanted this launch to be as great as possible. We thought we were going to pull a heroic effort and get this done by launch, but we had no time to test. As a result, the build that we finally finished at 6am (3 hours before our initial launch time) had some integration bugs that needed fixing and we just didn't feel like we had enough time to fix and test things to ensure a stable launch, which is the most important thing right now.

The vast majority of these bugs are very easy to fix, but there was no way it was going to be done by 9am and we felt like a 4th day with no sleep would just lead to more sloppy bugs. The team has napped all day and is back on the grind We are doing our best and appreciate the support.

Things are looking really good for Friday!

To the Splitgate community,

No one is as disappointed as we are that we have had to delay Splitgate’s launch. The Splitgate development team has been working nonstop, around the clock since the open beta to implement improvements, take your feedback, and fix bugs. We were hopeful that we would meet the deadline. We deeply apologize for the short notice on the delay.

As gamers ourselves, we know how frustrating that is, especially for people who rearranged their schedules in order to play this morning. We also know how frustrating it is to play games that are buggy or release too soon. We really thought we were good to go, but our final build in the early morning hours had a few a problems that needed to be addressed in order for us to release at a quality that we are proud of. So again, we deeply apologize and hope you’ll stick with us. We hope it will be worth the wait! See you in the arena Friday the 24th.
