split screen update

In Fortnite’s newest update, v11.30 contains a number of bug fixes, performance updates, and now offers split-screen multiplayer support on Xbox One and PS4.  As noted in a post on the Fortnite v11.30 update, gamers can now play with their friends locally, split-screen in Fortnite. With split-screen support on Xbox One, Fortnite gamers can play Duos and Squads with a friend on the same console. Since this is an early release of split-screen support, the Fortnite team implores you to use the in-game feedback tool to report any issues.

In addition to bug fixes, here’s a look at the new features available in the Fortnite v11.30 update.

  • Preview what’s in the Item Shop using your mobile device.
    With Party Hub, you can now preview what’s new in the Item Shop before loading into the game.
    To do this, open Party Hub, swipe right, and tap “Preview Items.”
  • Increased the daily Item Shop gifting limit from 3 to 5.
  • Changed Ammo Indicator.
    Now a visual representation of the remaining ammo number rather than a solid bar.
  • You can now choose when to transition from the “Eliminated By” screen to the end-of-match XP screen.
    To transition to the end-of-match XP screen, press “Continue” on the “Eliminated By” screen.

In addition to the aforementioned changes, the Fortnite team also made changes for the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker event this Saturday, December 14, 2019, at 2:00 PM ET. The Rise of Skywalker event will feature director J.J. Abrams reveal “exclusive scene in-game ahead of the movie’s release, only in Fortnite! Remember to drop in early at 1:30 PM ET when the doors open.”
