Epic Account Merging Is Finally Live in Fortnite

Epic Account Merging Is Finally Live in Fortnite

Back in September of previous year, Sony started allowing Fortnite to participate in cross-platform play, which solved this account issue for new Fortnite players. Epic Games has thought of everything, and is now allowing players who played the popular battle royale title on PlayStation 4 before a certain date to merge their Fortnite accounts into one mega account.

Merged accounts also can't be now banned, or disabled and players will need to be able to access all email addresses associated with the accounts they want to merge. To be absolutely clear, merging two Fortnite accounts means the primary account will receive transferred inventory items while the secondary account gets deleted.

Here's more from Epic Games, who confirmed in a new statement: "You'll choose two accounts, first a Primary Account that you wish to continue using". The secondary account will then be disabled. Two weeks later your cosmetic items and V-Bucks will be transferred to your Primary Account. You do have the option to unlink accounts prior to merging, however. Due to a restriction imposed by Sony, any Fortnite account which had ever been used - even once - to play the game on PS4 couldn't be used on an Xbox One or Switch version of the game.




Players must have used an Xbox or Switch account and a PlayStation account before September 28th 2018 for this tool to work. This is the main account that all other accounts will "merge" to - the account that will end up being the final, main account at the end of the process. You'll then need to pick a secondary account that will be instantly linked to your console login. The biggest stuff you'll have to leave behind on your secondary account are any Creative Mode Islands you've built and any Save The World mission/level progress (individual items like Llamas and Heroes will transfer). Nearly everything on the secondary account gets moved to the primary account, and then the secondary will be disabled.

The first stage of the process is heading over to the Epic Games website and selecting the merge account option.

Fortnite Creative will be available December 6 for those with a Battle Pass.
