Remember the days when two or more players would connect their controllers to a console and play the same game on a split-screen? Well, Epic Games remembers, and they just brought back the multiplayer split-screen function to Fortnite. Now, two players can play Fortnite together on a split-screen monitor or TV.
The split-screen function was part of the 11.30 patch that Epic Games released earlier this week. There were some slight hiccups with the update, which led to the temporary disablement of split-screen, but now it’s back.
How To Play Fortnite With Split Screen
How to use split-screen in Fortnite is pretty simple, though at the moment reasonably limited. Split Screen is only available in the Duos and Squads modes in the game on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
To use a split-screen in Fortnite, go to the Duos or Squads mode from the main menu, and have two controllers connected to your PS4 or Xbox One. A log-in option should then appear for the second player, who will then have to press and hold onto the specific button on their controller to log in.
After the second player picks an account and has logged in, both players should be able to play Duos or Squads together on a split-screen. Player one is the only gamer with access to the lobby and the menus.
