Splitgate gets a major update with a custom game option for Linux and Windows PC. Due to the ongoing efforts of developer 1047 Games. Which is now available for the free to play game on Steam.

Creators of the summer smash hit Splitgate revealed a major update. While offering more for the online portal shooter as they rolled out a custom game option. Since this will give players far more control over what kind of matches they want to play. Alongside this new feature, fans will notice a facelift to the UI for selecting maps and game modes. This also makes it easier to scroll through the present and saved game modes.

In the custom games mode currently, players can create their own Splitgate game modes and play with friends. This major update grants them the ability to define their own team traits. Setting up the possibility for wildly mixed asynchronous matches. For example, Team A could have supercharged health, but be unable to use portals. While Team B could have far less health but they have use of portals and heavier weaponry. This is the first step of many planned updates in the custom games feature for fans.

The possibilities are many, and with this major update, players are able to save their custom game modes. Then load them again later (prior to this update, Splitgate players would have to manually change every custom setting every time). Additionally, there will be custom game presets for fans looking to set up a match faster. Doing so in a more streamlined way.

Another important element to the update is the news that fans have until November 30 to complete their battle pass for Season 0. This launched late summer during Splitgate’s meteoric rise in popularity. A new season will begin December 1, and details for that are coming soon. However: The new December season will not herald Splitgate 1.0 but will be a preseason refresh with all-new content and a battle pass. All as the team works toward the official 1.0 launch, currently due for 2022.

One of the defining games of summer 2021, Splitgate exploded onto Linux, Windows PC, and consoles. Doing so as the game hit open beta across all platforms in July. With more than 15 million downloads, the unique portal shooter features 20+ available maps, hundreds of exclusive weapon skins. There are also armor skins, banners, jetpacks, and more with premium DLCs. With a battle pass and more.
