Splitscreen

From Minecraft Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Splitscreen is a Console Edition-exclusive feature that allows up to four players to play on one screen at the same time. Using Splitscreen requires a screen with an output of at least 720p or higher. On television screens this can be achieved using either an HDMI or RGB component cable. Local Splitscreen can be played using Local, Silver and Gold accounts, while Online Splitscreen can only be played using Gold and Guest accounts. Guest accounts can only be signed in at the start of a session; they can not join existing sessions.

[edit] Setup

Because Splitscreen requires a screen with an output of 720p or higher, the console's video output needs to be configured accordingly. The video mode can be checked by going to Settings > System > Console Settings > Display - Make sure this is set to 720p or higher.
