How to Play Fortnite Using This Split Screen?
As mentioned earlier that for now this feature is only able to be done on Xbox One and PS4. So, if you have one of these devices, you are able to play Fortnite together with your friend in the same PS4 or Xbox One. It means that you will share your TV screen with a friend while you are playing Duos and Squads. And this will be more fun if you use a bigger TV.
To start using this split screen mode in Fortnite, you need to have two compatible controllers and they also need two Epic Games accounts. If it comes to using the feature on Xbox One, one of the selected accounts will need to have Xbox Live Gold. You need to note that of you play Solo, you cannot use this split screen mode.
The next step that you have to do is choosing the account that you want to log in as, like you usually do on the start screen. After that, you will have to connect the second controller and then choose to log the second player in by holding down a button on the gamepad. As an instance, the option will be found on the bottom line of the screen on PS4 and it will prompt you to hold the X button.
If the second player join the lobby, you are able to switch control of the menu screen between the two accounts. It will permit for players to be able to change their skin, view replays and check out the stats screen. Now, Fortnite Split Screen is available in beta which means that it is not supported in Creative Mode or LTMs.
