Fortnite allows players to merge accounts

Fortnite allows players to merge accounts

This whole system only works for folks who played Fortnite on both PS4 and Xbox One or Switch before September 28th. You can then use this primary account on any platform, since every version of Fortnite now allows for cross-platform play. The first is a primary account, which is the one you'll want to continue using. Account merging is the solution and, rather later than the original November release date, the function is available.

Additionally, banned or disabled accounts can't be merged, which just seems like common sense.

It wasn't that long ago that Sony didn't allow cross play on PS4, so you'd have to have a separate account to play the battle royale shooter on that platform. If you used a third-party login (liked Facebook) on both of your accounts, it will be automatically unlinked from the secondary account. Sometimes it's hard to keep track of all your loot or how many wins or chicken dinners you have on each account.

Be warned, though: A few things won't transfer over from your secondary account.

You can access the Fortnite account merge tool now on the Epic Games website.

But you know like when you order something online and you have to wait for it to ship, get through customs, and delivered? The reason for this new feature is likely due to the days when Sony didn't want to come out and play with Xbox One and Nintendo and players needed to create an extra account. A holding period to make sure you're not trying anything phishy like stealing somebody else's account, I guess. The transfer process can take up to two weeks, and it's worth noting that your Battle Royale XP progress will not be transferred from your primary to your secondary account. All purchases from the Secondary Account will transfer to the primary. Items from the Unreal Marketplace, Creative Islands, and your Save the World account level and progress will not be moved to your primary account.

This whole is an epic and simple process for those who are holding to gaming accounts and are messy struggling. Do you at all play Fortnite on a regular basis?
