Splitgate Patch Notes: Mantling And Nvidia Reflex Arrive Alongside Bug Fixes And More

The free game's big September update has landed.

Comments

The popular free shooter Splitgate has been updated, with this newest patch focusing primarily on quality-of-life improvements that came from fan feedback.

At a glance, some of the biggest changes include combining Rumble and Casual modes into "Quick Play," reducing the likelihood of playing with bots in Quick Play, a fix for a voicechat bug, and the ability to toggle the mantling ability. There are also a series of bug fixes. Additionally, support for Nvidia Reflex has arrived to help reduce latency.

You can see the full patch notes below, as written by 1047 Games.

In other news, 1047 Games recently raised $100 million to fund the ongoing development of Splitgate and to grow the team. The studio will use the money to help Splitgate have a "historic" launch when it comes out of beta.

1047 Games has also engaged in some playful social media banter, telling fans that Splitgate will have a Forge mode before Halo Infinite does following 343's decision to delay that feature. Splitgate might also add a battle royale mode in the future, but nothing is certain yet.
