Epic Account Merging Is Finally Live in Fortnite

Fortnite now lets you merge accounts on different platforms

Fortnite account merges are now possible, a little over half a year after cross-platform incompatibility issues came to a head. This merger tool is specifically created to help people affected by the Sony account lockdown issue, and will not help you merge two unrelated old accounts.

To be eligible, one account must have played on Xbox One or Switch and the other on PS4 to be eligible for merge. (If you made progress in Save the World, you can transfer that XP).

It's a pretty inelegant solution to an awkward problem, but at least some sort of progress has been made.

The user must have access to all associated email addresses used in the Fortnite accounts. Being able to play against your friends regardless of what device they used has been one of Fortnite's strengths, but it made managing game resources sometimes more hard than it needed to be. The moving process will take about two weeks, after which your second account will be disabled.

Fortnite's account merging on console is now live, and here's how to do it. Then log into your account from another platform to merge it with your primary account.

It should also be noted that gamers must have played on each platform prior to September 28, 2018, while the account can not be banned or disabled. 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).

Players should be able to find the new merge account options on the official Epic Games.com website, under the account merge option, by using this Account Merge link.

To merge your accounts, simply go to Epic's Account Merge page and follow the instructions.

Make sure the account merge is correct. Two weeks later your Fortnite Cosmetic Items and V-Bucks will be transferred to your Primary Account.
