How to Play Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Split-Screen Multiplayer?
COD: Black Ops Cold War multiplayer can be played with a friend in the same room but only on the console. Sadly you can’t play split-screen mode on PC at this moment, and there is not any comment yet by Treyarch that it is going to be available on PC anytime soon.
Setting up a split-screen multiplayer on a console only takes a minute or two but there are some cautions. If you want to play this mode online, both players will need to have access to Xbox Live or Playstation Network account. If both players don’t have access to these then they will be restricted to play some local modes.
If you want to play the Split-Screen, you will have to just turn on the second controller, sign in to your account, and then to join the party just press X. Once you do all this then the lobby can choose and search for the multiplayer modes.
Just make sure that your settings for split-screen have defaulted to vertical view before you load into a game. You can change the settings from the graphics menu if you want to play the split-screen side by side.
