Splitgate Season 0: Release date, battle pass, rewards, new map, patch notes, more

Splitgate, the Halo meets Portal shooter and sleeper hit of 2021, has got a brand new season - Season 0.

In a surprise announcement, development studio 1407 revealed that Season 0 is out now, bringing with it a brand new map, a battle pass with 100 tiers, and a new game mode called Contamination.

The update was released with little fanfare but is sure to be greeted warmly by the millions of players who have taken the game to heart in recent months.

New map - Karman Station

Karman Station is the newest map added to the game and one that will look familiar to many, being as it's a rework of Outpost, a map that originally appeared during the beta.

New game mode - Contamination 

This is essentially a Humans vs Zombies mode, where players start as "Contaminated" with only bats as weapons, and the "Human" team, who have shotguns, must survive against the onslaught. 

If one of the Human team dies, they switch sides and join the Contaminated.

How much does the Splitgate Season 0 battle pass cost?

Splitcoins are bought in bundles, 1000 costs £7.20 ($10) or your local equivalent. 

There is also a free track with a limited number of items available to unlock.

What is included?

Over 100 tiers of rewards that take the shape of the weapon, player, and Portal skins, emotes, and XP bonuses.
