Fortnite Account Merging Now Available

This whole system only works for folks who played Fortnite on both PS4 and Xbox One or Switch before September 28th.

Players moving from PlayStation 4 to other platforms were unable to access their account on the Nintendo Switch or Xbox One, forcing them to make a second profile. In other words: if you played on PS4 then on Switch, you can merge them and pick a primary (the secondary gets disabled). Players should select whichever account they want to continue using to play as their "Primary" account, and then they will have the opportunity to transfer their cosmetics and V-Bucks.

In June previous year, Sony caused outrage when it was discovered playing Fortnite on PS4 meant the same account login wouldn't work on the Nintendo Switch.

The Secondary account's console login will be immediately linked to your Primary account.

Neither of your accounts can be now banned or disabled because, you know, that's the rules.

Battle royale game Fortnite has finally introduced account merging for those who play on PS4 and other platforms.

To be honest, it doesn't really matter which account you set as your primary, that's down to you.

Barca coach Valverde gives few hints about Messi's fitness
Ahead of a Copa America campaign later this year, Argentina are scheduled to face Venezuela and Morocco in friendlies next month. Asked about the fitness of Messi , he said: "It's always better when the best players get to play, it's as simple as that".

Sign in to the primary account. Epic Games now lets you access a single account on multiple consoles, but the process will see your inventory locked for a few weeks.

You select a primary account, and all your progress, purchases, and V-Bucks get transferred over to it. 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.

Your account must not now be banned or disabled.

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

The option can be found by visiting the Epic Games website and finding the merge section. After that, Epic Games will transfer all of what you have in that account to the main account you selected.

Verify the merge through email addresses. The whole process should take about two weeks, after which all items and V-Bucks will be in a unified under one happy roof. Head to the Epic Games site to read the complete breakdown of what will happen, what will be kept, and what will be lost.
