Part of the joy of Grounded is playing with friends and family, using your combined skill and intelligence to take on the dangerous insects and explore the garden safely. But you can do it without having to use different consoles? We’ll answer here: does Grounded have splitscreen co-op?
Does Grounded Have Splitscreen Co-op?
No, Grounded does not have splitscreen options for those playing on the same screen, so those who want to do co-op will need separate consoles or computers to play together. It’s not been stated whether or not couch co-op will be added to the game in future updates, so while it’s possible, there’s no guarantees that it’ll happen.
