If you are looking to get in on some local co-op fun with Gran Turismo 7 then you will be glad to know that Gran Turismo 7 split-screen is available for two players. The feature, which is a staple for the franchise, would have felt like a gaping hole in the experience without it.

However, split-screen racing has a few caveats when it comes to where and when you can use it, which means that you won’t always have split-screen multiplayer available for you in Gran Turismo 7.

So, for a full overview of Gran Turismo 7 split-screen, including where it is available and how it works, continue reading through this guide before you jump in with a friend or family member and begin racing.

As mentioned above, Gran Turismo 7 split-screen is available within the game. However, you will need to be connected online to use the feature, even though it’s for local multiplayer.

While some modes like standard arcade racing are available offline, split-screen for some reason isn’t and requires an online connection to the GT7 servers in order to play with someone locally. We aren’t quite sure why you need to be online but if we get confirmation or Polyphony changes this, we will be sure to update this article.
