You Can Now Merge Your Accounts In Fortnite

You Can Now Merge Your Accounts In Fortnite

Back in September of a year ago, Sony started allowing Fortnite to participate in cross-platform play, which solved this account issue for new Fortnite players. If you've purchased V-Bucks or items on a platform you don't play with regularly, you can now bring everything into your primary account.

Your account must not now be banned or disabled.

In-game items and Vbucks will be held for two weeks before they're merged to your primary account. The first is a primary account, which is the one you'll want to continue using.

And then, three months later, Sony enabled cross-platform play for Fortnite. You can finally merge it with your Xbox, PC, Nintendo Switch or mobile account, GameSpot reports. Epic said it takes two weeks for in-game items and V-Bucks to transfer from the secondary account to your primary account. 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.

As for the actual Fortnite account merging, it's an incredibly easy task.

One account must have played on Xbox One or Nintendo Switch and the other on PlayStation 4 before September 28, 2018 to be eligible. Nearly everything on the secondary account gets moved to the primary account, and then the secondary will be disabled. Additionally, neither of the accounts you're trying to merge can be banned or disabled.

The first stage of the process is heading over to the Epic Games website and selecting the merge account option. "Save the World will allow you to merge Llamas, Defenders, Heroes, Schematics, Survivors, XP, Evolution and Perk Materials".

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.

The new system is available to try out now and is being launched before the end of Fortnite Season and the launch of a new Battle Pass in March.
