Unity has local multiplayer built into the new input system.

Turn the player object into a prefab.

Drag the Player object into the Assets section.

You will know it is now a prefab as the gameobject in the hierarchy is now blue.

Now remove the player object from the scene.

Add an empty game object.

Call this object Player Manager

Add a Player Input Manager Component to the Player Manager

Drag the player Prefab to the player prefab attribute box of the Player Input Manager

At the moment Split-Screen wont work.

We need to add cameras to the player object.
