LEGO Fortnite: Can You Play Split-Screen?

LEGO Fortnite lets fans play co-operatively through online multiplayer, but is there a split-screen mode? Here’s what you need to know.

Fortnite added a split-screen option on consoles in Chapter 2 Season 1, allowing players to party up on the same couch and enjoy the game together. So, it’s no surprise that when a LEGO mode was announced for Fortnite, players immediately assumed that it would be split-screen. After all, LEGO games are famous for their split-screen gameplay. But does the new mode actually let you play split-screen? Here are the details.

Can You Play LEGO Fortnite Split-Screen?

No, unfortunately, you cannot play LEGO Fortnite in split-screen co-op. This applies to all platforms, including PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and the Nintendo Switch. Unlike Fortnite, LEGO Fortnite lacks a split-screen mode at launch. However, Epic Games has stated that the mode is simply “currently unavailable.” So, it is possible that a split-screen mode will be added in the future.

Fans may be surprised, especially considering that practically every LEGO game features some form of split-screen co-op. Of course, you can still play LEGO Fortnite with friends on servers of up to 8 players. However, it is strictly online multiplayer, and there is no option for offline local multiplayer.
