    Xbox One S unable to play local multiplayer games?


    I have searched and tried several things over the past week when my daughter had a friend over and tried to play several multi-player games on her Xbox One S. We've enjoyed this feature on the Xbox 360 and this is why we bought
    a second controller. Even unassociating the second controller with an account make no difference. Unable to join as a "Guest" (at least in Hydro Thunder and a handful of others we tried). There is no option to join as a guest. It forces you to enter an
    LIVE account when trying to join with Controller B. Matter of fact, it doesn't even give you a drop-down box so you could choose other saved accounts on your local system. This should not be rocket science, because I know the 360 worked the way every other
    console system has in the past, and Sony does it today just fine....

    :)

    Unable to play online multiplayer

    I recently got the 1 month Xbox live gold free trial but I'm unable to play online multiplayer in any of my games. I bought my Xbox one S three weeks ago and everything was fine then. Help!

    Multiplayer freezing?

    I have the Xbox One S. My network cord wouldn’t reach the back of the house. Local mode works fine. It’s just multiplayer in any game.

    My modern warfare 2 game just stays on the the press a to start screen

    Just found a work around on reddit.

    -When connecting, cancel and go offline

    -Enter a local multiplayer lobby

    -Back out of local multiplayer lobby

    -Press select to go Online

    - This should then reconnect you Online and resolve the issue.

    Worked for me fixing my sons issue on his Xbox One S.

    Hope this helps !

    Game accessibility issue after EA subscription ends in XBOX one S.

    Thank you Reactor leak. Do you have any idea about difference between xbox live local multiplayer and xbox local multiplayer and xbox live local co-op. Does it require xbox live gold pass to play as local multiplayer (using 2 controllers)

    TOTAL BEGINNER

    Welcome to the Xbox family! The main buzzwords you're looking for are "local co-op" and "local multiplayer." A game with local co-op means that people playing it together are working toward a common goal. Local multiplayer could mean that players playing
    together are either working toward a common goal or competing against each other. Additionally, "split-screen" means that the screen will essentially divide itself into smaller screens and each player will look at one of those smaller screens while playing.

    When you browse the Xbox Store (or Microsoft Store), you can
    filter
    your search for specific features you want. Local co-op and local multiplayer are among those features. I would caution that if you see "multiplayer" without "local" before it, that might include online multiplayer as well as local multiplayer,
    so you definitely want to make sure you're looking at local multiplayer only. One other resource I'd recommend is the
    Co-Optimus website, where you can search for Xbox One games with local multiplayer settings and see user feedback that's a bit more specific to the local multiplayer modes.

    On another note, I'd recommend looking into
    Xbox Game Pass Ultimate
    , a monthly subscription that grants access to a catalog of featured games as well as the online multiplayer benefits of Xbox Live Gold. There are some great games with local co-op that are available through there, including Gears
    5, Rocket League, and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, and many, many more. I believe right now that they're offering a promotion featuring the first three months for $1.

    Hope that helps!

    Make sure you are doing the following:

    Multiplayer Options

    Minecraft (Bedrock) supports the following multiplayer options:

    • Locally hosted multiplayer world via LAN or Xbox Live
