Splitgate is a free-to-play arena shooter game in development by 1047 Games.
The game had its initial open beta release on May 24, 2019, for PC, and then for Console on July 27, 2021, with crossplay enabled between console and PC.
If you wish to play with a controller on Splitgate instead of a keyboard and mouse then keep reading as we will explain how you can do so in a simple step-by-step explanation.
Though the developers pushed back the official launch for the game due to the surge in popularity during this beta version and have not provided a new date for the official launch, the game is being updated regularly.
The most recent update enabled 360 fps option for PC players, players who are sitting idle in the menu for too long are kicked and Autosprint is now a setting that can be enabled.
Kicking players sitting idle will help further reduce the queue times which seem to be the primary issue the game is facing at the moment.
