Good afternoon. In this post, we will tell you how to play Fortnite on one screen – split-screen with a friend on PS4 and Xbox one. Epic Games has recently introduced a split-screen for Fortnite on PS4 and Xbox One. The new feature allows two players to play on the same console with two controllers. This is similar to Star Wars: Battlefront 2, Resident Evil 6 and several games in Call of Duty franchise.

Unfortunately, the ability to play with friends from a split-screen is not available on every platform. The split-screen feature of Fortnite is not available on PC, Nintendo Switch or mobile devices.

How to play Fortnite on one screen – split screen with another on PS4 and Xbox one

Step 1: Create a second account on your console

Before connecting a second controller, make sure that there is more than one account available on your console. If you only have only one account, the split-screen will not work.

Here is how you can create a new account on PS4:

Click the power button

Select Change user

Select a new user

Enter any name and password

Confirm new user

Here is how you can create a new account on Xbox One:

Click the user profile icon in the top left corner of the console’s main menu.

Select Add a new account

Select Receive new email address.

Enter any other e-mail address and confirm.

Enter any name and password

Enter a name to log in

Confirm terms of use

Step 2: Connect the second controller

Once you have created a new account, you can connect a second controller to your console. We assume that you already know how to do that.

Step 3: Log in to the lobby.

When you enter the Fortnite Lobby, you will see a hint at the bottom of the screen offering to connect another player to your game by pressing “X” on PS4 and “A” on Xbox One.

When you press the right button, Fortnite will ask you to login as another user. Now select the new account that you created before this step.

The other player should appear in the lobby. You can press “X” on PS4 and “A” on Xbox One if you want to give the other player control over the menu, the landing target and the cosmetics.
