Fortnite account merging is now available - here's how to do it

New World MMO 3 via Amazon 2019

While Fortnite players who played across multiple systems previously needed to have a separate account in order to do so, Epic is now allowing players to merge accounts, allowing them to use the same one across multiple platforms. 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.

Banned and disabled accounts can not be merged, obviously. Both accounts must have been actively played on before September 28th 2018.

Players will need to choose two accounts.

After the process is complete, your in-game items and V-bucks will be held for 2 weeks before being transferred to the primary account, so take this into consideration. One of them will be your Primary account that you'll use going forward. Save The World is slightly more limited: you can only merge Llamas, Defenders, Heroes, Schematics, Survivors, XP, Evolution, and Perk Materials. The Secondary account will be merged with your Primary account and disabled.

Now, Epic has confirmed that you can merge those accounts together - and it's remarkably simple. One of the accounts being merged must have played on Xbox One or Switch before September 2018, and the other account must have played on PS4 before September 2018.

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

The first stage of the process is heading over to the Epic Games website and selecting the merge account option. Fortnite cosmetics and Vbucks will be moved for example, but other items like Unreal marketplace items and Save The World progress will not. Nearly everything on the secondary account gets moved to the primary account, and then the secondary will be disabled.

Fortnite Creative will be available December 6 for those with a Battle Pass.
