Contend Gaming’s Iskander Ben Amor rewired his brain last week to take on the Splitgate beta — and now he’s fragging with portals! Splitgate is a free-to-play, fast-paced multiplayer shooter that features player-controlled portals. Evoking memories of the most revered shooters of the past two decades, Splitgate embraces the classic and familiar feel of close-quarters combat while adding a unique twist. IGN describes Splitgate as “Halo meets Portal.”

Initially Splitgate struggled to maintain a viable playerbase after its initial early access launch in 2019—but the game recently experience a surge of interest when the game’s beta launched in early July 2021, causing it to surpass 600,000 downloads in the first week

Along with grindable challenges, dozens of customizable characters, a competitive leaderboard and ranking system, and over 15 casual and competitive game modes, Splitgate boasts more than 20 maps—each with its own unique setting and play style. 

The maps include a research facility inside an active volcano, an underwater luxury hotel, an alien crash site, and much more. Each map has its own look and feel and plays differently, rewarding players for adapting tactics in the fast-paced, portal combat that only Splitgate offers.
