Is it possible to play minecraft in split screen without an Xbox live account?

Yes you can play on split screen according to: https://minecraft.wiki/w/Splitscreen

If you have another controller turned on it should pop up on screen saying "Press start to join game"


Yes, you can play local splitscreen with local accounts.

Not really known in my family but it IS supposed to be possible without an Xbox Live account. Though when I tried it it didn't say to press start to join the game. But it IS possible.
