We'll be completely honest here: this news simply passed us by. Splitgate, a free-to-play arena FPS with some Portal thrown in for good measure, is coming to PlayStation 4, and it's all happening this month. There's an open beta running right now — since last week, in fact — and the full game is set to launch on 27th July.
Again, the concept is essentially a sci-fi multiplayer shooter, only you can fire portals as well as bullets. As you can see in the video above, this affords you all sorts of opportunities; someone sniping you from up high? Fire one portal behind them, another on a wall near you, and shoot them point blank. It looks pretty crazy, and skilled players will find all sorts of amazing uses of portals in a game like this.
The game is proving to be pretty popular already, and it supports full cross-platform play — in other words, you're not going to be short of people to play with. There doesn't seem to be an end date for the open beta; it seems to just roll into the full release on the 27th. That makes sense, because if you download the beta client, it's about 27GB, which is surely just the full game.
We're definitely curious to take this for a spin. Will you be mixing portals with firearms in Splitgate on PS4? Reload in the comments section below.
