This feature is limited to Fortnite: Battle Royale Duos and Squads - but this does not include Creative, Limited Time Modes, Save the World or Solos.

Be aware that if one player should disconnect the split-screen session will end - split-screen only works during a match and does not allow you to share inventory.

Multi-language support is not available at this time and both players must have the same language settings.
