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

Fortnite account merges are now possible, a little over half a year after cross-platform incompatibility issues came to a head.

The process is actually very simple.

Here's more from Epic Games, who confirmed in a new statement: "You'll choose two accounts, first a Primary Account that you wish to continue using". Epic has created a way for to merge Epic accounts if you created separate logins on your PlayStation 4, Xbox One and/or the Nintendo Switch.

In December, Epic Games announced it would delay the release of Fortnite's account merge feature until early 2019.

Of course, there are some caveats involved.

You can only merge accounts tied to game console networks - PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch - that were used at least once before 28 September 2018. This means that if you have one account on Xbox and one on Switch, you can't merge them with the tool. You also can not merge banned or suspended accounts.

The good news is the account merge feature is now live.

In-game items and Vbucks will be held for two weeks before they're merged to your primary account.

Players will then need to choose a primary account to use as the new main account which will replace the other. 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.

Your account must not now be banned or disabled.

Epic highlight that other items such as Unreal Marketplace items, Creative Islands, and Save The World account levels and progress will not be merged over from your secondary account and will be gone, potentially forever, upon the successful merger of your accounts. Save The World is slightly more limited: you can only merge Llamas, Defenders, Heroes, Schematics, Survivors, XP, Evolution, and Perk Materials.

Keep in mind to think carefully about whether you want to merge your accounts or not.
