Split screen on Fortnite
Today I want to tell you how you can use Fortnite on your PlayStation 5 to do split screen. So, you will need another dual-sense controller to make this happen. Unfortunately, dual shock 4 isn’t going to work. There wasn’t a way to actually load a PlayStation 4 version of the game on the PlayStation 5. So, kind of out of luck with that. If you try to connect it using the second screen, it just won’t work.
Let’s get into this!
When the first controller is in the Fortnite lobby, just as they normally would log in, you want to take that second controller and press the PlayStation home button on it. Once you do that, you will get the prompt to sign in another user, and we can just do the quick play function as of right now. We will still have to log in though, because once we have that second controller connected, we should see the option to pair the second controller. In my case, I did not see the option, so I actually backed out. You can log back into another game and see the option to press triangle to log in to the second controller. You can hold that and this is where you have to sign in to the PlayStation network.
About PlayStation app
Therefore, in order for your friend to utilize the Playstation app to log in through the QR code, they must either manually enter it or use the app. Sign in as usual. If you want to sign in again but it doesn’t work, just press the X key instead of the square one. When you’ll be able to enter the lobby and take a seat. That’s all there is to it. Now you can just start a game and compete in some duels. As soon as you have both hands available on either of the controllers, you can begin playing a game that has a split-screen and runs at 60 frames per second. It just looks really beautiful! Obviously, an update from the features on the Playstation 4 and based on the testing that I’ve done. It performs a lot more smoothly! It used to be glitchy and awkward and have a low latency, but once I moved both controllers around, it’s not like that anymore. The map is looking good even on split-screen!
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, here’s how you can play Fortnite on your PlayStation 5 with a split-screen setup utilizing two dual-sense controllers. Pretty amazing, and not too difficult! Therefore, you will have an easier time playing Fortnite with your pals going forward.
