The quick answer to whether there is split screen in Wolfenstein: Youngblood is no, there’s not. While the game does offer two-player co-op multiplayer, it doesn’t allow for split-screen. In a tweet from the Wolfenstein account, it was confirmed that multiplayer is online co-op only. In an interview with Metro, Machinegames senior gameplay designer Andreas Ojerfos further elaborated upon the decision to exclude split-screen from Wolfenstein: Youngblood.

“It’s really difficult to make split-screen because you render the game twice and it affects how you do your art assets. So we would have loved to do it, but there’s a big reason why you almost never see it. It’s very difficult to do nowadays.”

If you’d rather go it alone, Wolfenstein: Youngblood can also be played solo with an AI companion in tow. Wolfenstein: Youngblood is currently scheduled to release on July 25 on PC and July 26 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. It’s priced at $29.99 and serves as a sort of prequel to Wolfenstein 3 that will take you around 25 to 30 hours to complete.
