Splitscreen is a dying artform. So many games want to use all the power of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for processing an image, meaning the art of playing a game with your buddy next to you has been dropped from many games.
That won't be the case for Gears of War 4 though. The Coalition's Rod Fergusson has told The Game Informer show, that not only will the title have splitscreen, but it will be across all modes. He said:
Any way you can play Gears of War you can play split-screen.
If you are playing multiplayer though, be aware that the 60fps will drop down to 30fps.
Like I said, this is nice to see, for a play option that is disappearing and that some are legitimately still asking for, it's good to see a great couch co-op game like Gears of War still bringing it.
