Epic Games enabled Fortnite’s split-screen capability all the way back in 2019, allowing players on consoles to jump into the game together on the same system and screen.
Dexerto says “Dropping back in Fortnite’s huge Chapter 2 revamp, it marked the first time that the game featured something like this, and it’s arguably one of the biggest changes to come in Fortnite Chapter 2 thus far. With the feature, players can drop into Fortnite at home together at the same time, with each player’s POV appearing on one half of the screen. However, many are unaware that the feature even exists, so we’ve put together a handy guide to help you get started.”

How to turn on split-screen in Fortnite
Follow these steps to enable the feature within your game:
- Head to the game’s main lobby on the main player’s account.
- Turn on the second controller, and log into the second player’s account when prompted.
- On the bottom of your screen, you’ll see the option to press your console’s corresponding Triangle or Y button to log in player two to the game.
- Following this, both players should now appear within the lobby area of the game.
- That’s it – enjoy split-screen Fortnite!
“It’s worth noting that the game session will end if one player is disconnected, even if the other player remains in play. Player’s inventories will remain separate – meaning that you still have to collect your own items to craft and upgrade items.”
When is split-screen coming to Switch and PC?
“PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices do not support this functionality, and Epic has not indicated that it will be enabled on those platforms anytime soon. As any new info arises, though, we’ll be sure to update you here with anything new.”
