There’s nothing better than sitting down with you friend, booting up a game, and playing it together in the same room. Call of Duty games have long boasted split-screen options, and it looks like Sledgehammer Games is set to carry on that tradition with Vanguard split-screen.
However, many hope that Sledgehammer will be able to breathe new life into the feature, considering how bugged Black Ops Cold War’s split-screen was. Couch co-op games these days are far and few between and finding one that ticks all the boxes is a difficult proposition. Still, if everything goes to plan, with Vanguard split-screen you might be able to enjoy couch co-op as intended.
But what will Vanguard split-screen entail and how do you set it up? Here’s everything we know so far about the game’s couch co-op feature, what you’ll be able to play, and how it’ll work in one handy place.
Will there be Vanguard split-screen?
Call of Duty Vanguard does have split-screen multiplayer. There aren’t any split-screen options for Zombies right now.
However, split-screen is only available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. You can’t access the feature on PC.
How to set up split-screen in Call of Duty: Vanguard
To set up split-screen in Call of Duty Vanguard you need to get your friend to turn on a second controller and then sign into their account on the PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, or Xbox One. If the second (or third, or even fourth player) doesn’t have a PSN or Xbox Live account – they can log in as a guest.
Once the login is complete, the lobby leader then picked which mode they want to play – either local or online – and hit search.
If you want the additional players to play online they will need their own PSN or Xbox Live account, with PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold. If all players don’t have access to this then you are limited to playing locally.
As of right now, split-screen appears to be working smoothly for Call of Duty: Vanguard, but if there are any issues or glitches, we will update this article with more information.
