Splitgate Esports is growing
Splitgate is a free-to-play multiplayer shooter that was first released in 2019. The title hasn’t taken off as widely as some other free-to-play games. However, there have been impressive download numbers and a strong fanbase. The title combines first-person shooter gameplay along with wormholes that add sci-fi elements in the battle. This is an interesting take on the genre. The game has been running since 2019, but it saw a major overhaul in 2021. The title started to receive fill seasons too.
January 27th saw Season 1 start after the eventual end of Season 0. While this has been a long time coming, this looks to be a decent push for the game. There are plenty of competitors for shooters with sci-fi elements, like Overwatch, Valorant, and Halo. However, Splitgate does seem to be getting a lot more attention at the moment.
Between the recent update and the Splitgate 2022 Pro Series announced, this is a great time to start checking out Splitgate. Or just to revisit the game now that it has become a bit more fully formed.
