It’s been quite some time since the last decent arena shooter, but Splitgate certainly fits the bill. Thanks to its awesome mashup of Halo-like combat and clever wormhole gameplay similar to Portal, it makes a classic genre feel fresh and exciting. No wonder, then, so many players are scrambling to try it out and wondering whether you need PS Plus and/or Xbox Live to play Splitgate. Here’s what you need to know.
Do You Need PS Plus & Xbox Live to Play Splitgate? Answered
Put simply, no: Splitgate is a free-to-play experience, which quite literally means there are no costs attached to downloading, installing, and booting up the game to get involved. That includes absolutely no requirement to paying a subscription to either PlayStation or Xbox’s online services, PS Plus and Xbox Live.
The only aspect of Splitgate you will ever need to pay for is its in-game cosmetics, such as individual skins and the season-long battle pass content. But simply playing the game is entirely free of charge.
If you have ever played other free-to-play games, such as Fortnite, then you may know that this is exactly the same sort of arrangement. Only premium multiplayer games require you to pay a subscription to PS Plus or Xbox Live.
Remember, Splitgate is also free-to-play on PC via Steam, and it supports full cross-play functionality, meaning that you can play with friends across every system, all free of charge. Good luck, and have fun out there!
