For a lot of people, playing a Lego game with someone in split-screen co-op is a core part of the experience. So, it’s only natural that players are asking if Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga even has split-screen co-op and how you set it up.

Similar to previous Lego games from TT Games, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will have a traditional split-screen system in place. This allows players to stray far from one another and, in some cases, even travel to different locations on the same planet. For example, on Coruscant, players can be in the Federal District and the Jedi Temple at the same time.
