Account Merging Is Now Available On Fortnite, But Process Takes Time

Account Merging Is Now Available On Fortnite, But Process Takes Time

To have a Switch/Xbox account and PS4 login as well that you had created or played before the end of September of 2018.

Epic Games has taken the lid off of the new version of its Account Merge tool that plays nicely with PlayStation 4 Fortnite accounts.

Fortnite makers Epic Games have released an account-merging feature to help users overcome the issue, so they will no longer have to hop between accounts every time they use a different console.

There are also a set of requirements that must be met in order for players to successfully merge their console logins. Take note though - when you do this, the secondary account is disabled.

This doesn't just apply to Battle Royale either, as Save the World also lets you merge Llamas, Defenders, Heroes, Survivors, Schematics, XP, Evolution andPerk Materials too.

As a result, a lot of players (including myself) created a second Fortnite account so they could play the game on a second device, even though doing so meant leaving a primary username and earned items behind. If you have a Battle Pass active or maps you want to keep on one platform, make sure to select it as your Primary Account to keep your work.

There is a restriction for merging accounts, though.

Is this a feature you've been waiting to use?

Players who have had their accounts banned or disabled will not be able to transfer items from their abandoned profile.

If you have two accounts that have only ever been used to play on Xbox, Nintendo Switch, PC, or mobile, you can't merge them.

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

Two weeks after that, cosmetic items and V-Bucks will be transferred to the player's primary account.

Go to the Epic Games Account Merge page.

If you switched platforms to play with friends or simply found you preferred one over another, you may have had to leave some money and progress behind.

As might be expected, there are a few things that will not survive the account merge: Unreal Marketplace items, Creative Islands, and Save the World account level and progress.

There are a few things that you can not transfer to a new account, such as your Battle Pass and maps made in creative mode.
