If you are a Fortnite fan who has different accounts for the popular battle royale game on different consoles, Epic Games finally has an announcement that you might have been waiting for. The much-requested Fortnite account merging feature is here and can be used with ease. It is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch console players.
The ability to merge different Fortnite accounts from different consoles will help you recover your V-Bucks and Fortnite Cosmetic Items including skins from the accounts you hardly use. For those wondering why would people have different accounts, it is because of Sony's decision to not offer cross-platform functionality until late last year. Since Sony previously did not allow players to play Fortnite on other platforms once they have used a particular account on PlayStation, they had no choice but to create separate accounts for different platforms.
But before you proceed with Fortnite account merging, there are a few things to keep in mind.
- One account must have played on Xbox One or Switch and the other on PS4 before September 28th 2018 to be eligible.
- Your account must not currently be banned or disabled.
- In-game items and Vbucks will be held for two weeks before they’re merged to your primary account.
- You’ll need access to all email addresses that are associated with accounts you wish to merge
- If you have duplicate 3rd party login like Facebook on both your Primary and Secondary account, the Secondary login will be unlinked. You can unlink it prior to merging.
- Battle Royale will allow you to merge all cosmetic items. Save the World will allow you to merge Llamas, Defenders, Heroes, Schematics, Survivors, XP, Evolution and Perk Materials.
- Other Items such as Unreal Marketplace items, Creative Islands, and Save The World account level and progress will not be merged over from your secondary account
