A leaked photo of a support page suggests that Epic Games will be revealing local split-screen play for Fortnite at tonight’s Game Awards ceremony.
Epic Games has already teased that a “special announcement” regarding Fortnite will be happening at the Game Awards tonight, and thanks to FortniteNews we have a good idea of what that announcement might be.
A leaked photo of a Fortnite support page has been doing the rounds after it apparently went live prematurely, and it addresses a question about console split-screen mode. From the looks of it, split-screen will be supported on PS4 and Xbox One, but not on PC or mobile devices. Also according to the leak, it will be available exclusively in Duos and Squad game modes; not Creative, Limited Time Modes, Save the World or Solos.

📣 We’ll be making a special announcement during the show so don’t miss it 👀

Leaked patch notes for tomorrow’s upcoming v11.30 update from FireMonkey on Twitter also includes references to a split-screen mode, so there’s plenty to suggest that this isn’t just an empty rumour.
