Twitch Rivals is back again with another tournament, this time featuring Splitgate: Arena Warfare and has a plethora of major participants including Dr Disrespect, Jaryd 'Summit1g' Lazar, and more.

Splitgate released from beta on May 24 and was met with a lot of excitement among players, and was described by many as an arena shooter like Halo mixed with Portal.

Despite this, it hasn't really started to fly on Twitch like many expected, but that could all be changing thanks to May 28's Twitch Rivals tournament.


How to watch

As with all Twitch Rivals tournaments, you'll be able to watch the action on the TwitchRivals page or along with your favorite streamer on their own channel.

The TwitchRivals broadcast will show a variety of different players while watching with a streamer will just give their point of view.
