The 11.30 update for Epic Games’ Fortnite: Battle Royale went live earlier today and adds split-screen for the online multiplayer game.
Epic Games said in the update’s patch notes that the feature allows one other player to join for Duos and Squads modes and is only available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions with cross-play between the two consoles enabled.
“Mobile devices, Nintendo Switch and PC platforms are not supported,” according to a support article on the feature. Split-screen will also not work with Fortnite’s other modes such as Creative, Limited Time Modes, Save the World, or Solos.
Epic Games said split-screen is an early release and plans to improve the feature over time, but does not detail whether it will be extended to other platforms.
The 11.30 update also made a few UI changes with a different ammo counter and end of match screen alongside “preparations” for a special Star Wars event happening this Saturday, Dec. 14.
The event, announced last week, plans to show “never-before-seen footage” from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker live at the Risky Reels location alongside the movie’s director, J.J. Abrams, expected to present. The virtual doors open at 1:30 p.m. ET with the show starting at 2 p.m. ET.
