Fortnite account merging is finally here

Players with an extra PlayStation 4 Fortnite account can now merge it with an Xbox One or Nintendo Switch account. Everybody who had to split their play time between an Epic Games account associated with PS4 and an Epic Games account associated with Switch or Xbox One can finally get all of their items in one place, though the process does have a few technicalities you should know before starting.

With a little patience, however, you could soon have all of your Fortnite victories housed in a single, unified account that can be used on every platform.

To be eligible, one account must have played on Xbox One or Switch and the other on PS4 to be eligible for merge.

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. 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. This was good news, but it also left a lot of players with two accounts and no way to combine any of the accessories, skins, weapons, dances and V-Bucks they'd separately accrued.

The secondary account will be "merged and disabled" and the login on your secondary account will be linked to your primary account instead.

Don't see all your stuff? Two weeks later your cosmetic items and V-Bucks will be transferred to your Primary Account.

A little more fine print: not everything will make the jump.

Everything from the Battle Royale mode will merge to the main account while only selected things from Save the World will come across: llamas, defenders, heroes, schematics, survivors, XP, evolution, and perk materials. Simply go to the Epic Games merge website and select a primary account. Nearly everything on the secondary account gets moved to the primary account, and then the secondary will be disabled.

Verify the merge through email addresses.

You can begin the process by heading on over to the official site, where Epic has set up a page especially for this. Fortnite cosmetics and Vbucks will be moved for example, but other items like Unreal marketplace items and Save The World progress will not.
