Wolfenstein: Youngblood is currently available for PC players to play and will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 (PS4), and Nintendo Switch players to jump into on Friday, July 26th. One of the new additions Wolfenstein: Youngblood has brought to the franchise known for its love of killing Nazis is the ability for players to play through the game together. This co-op feature allows players to control one of the twin daughters of franchise protagonist B.J. Blazkowicz in Sophia and Jessica. With co-op being a central focus of Wolfenstein: Youngblood, many members of the video game community have been curious about whether or not the new game is splitscreen. If you have been wondering whether or not this new title is splitscreen, be sure to check out everything you need to know about the possibility of fighting Nazis on the couch with a buddy below.
Is Wolfenstein: Youngblood Splitscreen?
Unfortunately for players who were looking forward to defeating the Nazi threat on the couch together through splitscreen multiplayer, the co-op feature for Wolfenstein: Youngblood is only available for online play. This lack of splitscreen was confirmed by the official Twitter account for the popular first-person shooter franchise.

As with most modern-day titles in the video game industry, splitscreen has become a rarer and rarer feature to find in a game, as online play has become the central focus for most multiplayer titles. This means that Wolfenstein: Youngblood will not be the leader of bringing couch co-op gameplay back to the forefront of the gaming in the way it used to be.
While Wolfenstein: Youngblood may not have splitscreen co-op available for players to partake in, the online co-op feature still provides plenty of opportunities for friends to experience the adrenaline-fueled action the latest entry in the franchise has to offer.
