Despite "Battlefield 4" being known for its multiplayer mode, the game cannot be played split screen. There are no options within the game that allow two players to play the game on the same console.
While other first-person shooters like the "Halo" and "Call of Duty" series can be played split-screen, as of 2014, the entire "Battlefield 4" series does not support split-screen play. This is because of the sheer memory usage the game requires, which would render split screen unplayable due to lag. Despite its lack of split screen, "Battlefield 4" can support up to 64 players in one online game.
