Recently, Epic Games released a new-old update, which once again made it possible to play Fortnite in Split Screen mode on PS4. A long-awaited update among many. But what do you really do to play in this new mode on Playstation? In this article we give you the answer.
SPLIT SCREEN MODE IS POPULAR ON CONSOLES
As before, this is a new-old update. In the past, it has been possible to play in Split Screen on consoles such as PS4 and Xbox One. Once the feature was removed, many people reacted strongly. Something that really proved how popular it is to play in Split Screen with your friends.
In connection with this, Epic Games noted how much demand this feature is among players, and therefore decided to take it back. They also made a statement explaining that it is possible to play Duos and Squads with a friend, on the same PS4 or Xbox One.
In addition to this, they also took the opportunity to point out that this is an early release of Split Screen. In the future, this feature will continue to be developed and improved, which is why players are encouraged to report bugs via their Feedback tool.
HOW TO PLAY FORTNITE IN SPLIT SCREEN
But, how do you play Split Screen mode on your console?
Well, first of all you need a PS4 or an Xbox One, as these two consoles are the only ones that support Split Screen mode. At least for the time being. In addition to this, you also need two controls.
Start by connecting one of the controls and then select Duos or Squads. It is not possible to activate Split Screen in Solo Mode. Once you have selected one of these two game modes, it’s time to connect the other controller to your device.
To connect the second controller, you have to hold down a button, which on the PS4 is X. Once the other player has entered the lobby, you can go back and forth between the two accounts. Something that allows players two to end their skins, see stats and the like.
