How to unlock split screen

Gran Turismo 7 has an unusual structure. When you start the game, split screen is not available. To unlock split screen, you need to complete GT Café Menu 9: Tokyo Highway Parade at the GT Café by finishing in third place or above.

After completing the menu, a location for Multiplayer will appear on the World Map. Navigate to the bottom right of the World Map to access the multiplayer options.

You’ll be presented with two options: Lobby and 2P Split Screen. Select Lobby if you want to race online and 2P Split Screen if you want to have a local multiplayer race. From here, the player host can change the track, time of day and number of laps.

Up to two players can battle it out in a split-screen race, but you won’t earn credits to buy cars or upgrades.
