Splitgate is getting a Forge mode, development studio 1047 Games announced via Twitter on Wednesday — and it's going to arrive before Halo Infinite's, apparently.
Splitgate Forge Mode: When is it Coming?
The announcement came in the form of a reply to an engagement-baiting tweet by KFC Gaming asking followers to "Trigger an entire gaming fanbase with one sentence." The Splitgate Twitter account's response?
"Splitgate will have forge mode before Halo Infinite. (Sorry in advance Halo fans, we love you but we had to.)"
Forge, which was introduced to the Halo series in Halo 3 and has since become a series mainstay, allows players to build their own custom maps using the game's assets. Development studio 343 Industries previously announced that the game mode would not launch with Halo Infinite. Instead, it will be added to the game in the game's third season — roughly six months after its Dec. 8 launch.
"We probably won't call it forge mode, but it's a map editor," 1047 said in a follow-up tweet. "Imagine placing portal pads anywhere you wanted on Olympus!"
In an attempt to turn up the heat on its major league competitor, 1047 Games will add Forge to its game before then. Exactly when that will be remains unknown.
