How to Play Fortnite with Split Screen on PS4 and Xbox One
Remember the days when two or more players connected their controllers to a console and played the same game on a split screen? Well, Epic Games remembers, and they’ve just brought the multiplayer split-screen feature back to Fortnite. Now two players can play Fortnite together on a split-screen monitor or TV.
The split-screen feature was part of the last patch released by Epic Games earlier this week. There were a few slight hiccups with the update, which led to the split screen being temporarily disabled, but now it’s back.
How to play Fortnite with split screen
How to use the split screen in Fortnite is quite simple, but for now reasonably limited. The split screen is only available in the Duos and Squads modes of the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
To use a split screen in Fortnite, go to Duos or Squads mode in the main menu and have two controllers connected to your PS4 or Xbox One. A connection option should then appear for the second player, who will then need to press and hold the specific button on their controller to connect.
Once the second player has chosen an account and logged in, both players should be able to play The duos or The squads together on a split screen. Player one is the only player with access to the lobby and menus.
