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.

Dexerto says “While most of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7’s weekly challenges have so far revolved around alien invaders, Week 7’s Legendary quests are a little more obscure, with players needing to find Records and collect Parenting Books from various locations. Another strange quest asks players to construct a Wooden Hatchery, which is used to hold eggs. Whether this is meant for the chickens that run wild around the Island or the recent Alien Parasite invaders, we’ll have to wait and see. We doubt players are going to spend too much time debating the purpose of this quest, though, so let’s get straight to the
