Splitgate’s maps are large and multi-dimensional, with plenty of creative opportunities to create Portals and get the drop on opponents. While the FPS mechanics are familiar, you are going to have to be creative with your kill strategies on the fly, using misdirection, strategically placed portals to either surprise your opponent or fake them out. The weapons will be familiar with Halo-like Railguns, Snipers, Assault Rifles and Shotguns dealing out Doom-like carnage.

Even with Halo Infinite Technical Previews over the summer, Battlefield 2042 betas too, you may find yourself devoting more and more time to Splitgate as it seems to offer something unique enough to keep you coming back for more.
