Fortnite account merging is finally here

Fortnite account merging is finally here

"One account must have played on Xbox One or Switch and the other on PS4 before Sep". However, due to this cross-platform play, many players have multiple Fortnite accounts on various platforms. All you have to do is hit the tool, sign into a primary account, and then into a secondary one, and you're golden. This means there are players that wish to merge their accounts so they can use their V-Bucks or cosmetics on any account, but this feature was not previously available.

Fortnite account merges are now possible, a little over half a year after cross-platform incompatibility issues came to a head. Well, it has taken a while, but Epic has finally released a tool to merge accounts across all platforms.

Neither of your accounts can be now banned or disabled because, you know, that's the rules.

Another limitation is your merge tool only works for cosmetic items; except for Save the World mode that enables you to transfer experience points.

The user must have access to all associated email addresses used in the Fortnite accounts. One of them will be your Primary account that you'll use going forward. While Epic don't explicitly say it, it can be assumed that if your ban is lifted or your account is reactivated, you'll be able to merge accounts.

"Fortnite" is the first video game to allow cross-platform play between PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, iOS, and Android, but switching between different platforms hasn't always been easy. You'll see a countdown timer in-game that shows you how long you have left to wait.

Epic's website now offers the easiest way to merge your accounts.

Once the account merge is done, your primary account will keep all of your "Fortnite" progress.

In-game items and Vbucks will be held for two weeks before they're merged to your primary account.

This process sounds scary and daunting but it's actually what we all want. The moving process will take about two weeks, after which your second account will be disabled.

Epic's account-merging feature combines your purchases (and some game progress) to the account you use regularly, and deletes any other account you made because you had to. Are you playing Fortnite?
