Fortnite account merging is finally here

Back in September of past year, Sony started allowing Fortnite to participate in cross-platform play, which solved this account issue for new Fortnite players.

You can merge all cosmetics from Battle Royale.

Your account must not now be banned or disabled.

Epic Games released their new system update to make it possible to unify your best skins into one primary account. Simply go to the Epic Games merge website and select a primary account.

Players will need to choose two accounts.

In December, Epic Games announced it would delay the release of Fortnite's account merge feature until early 2019. This feature will let all V-bucks and items earned across two accounts to finally be in one place.

One account must have played on Xbox One or Switch and the other must have been played on PlayStation 4. In addition to this, players must have used each account before September 28th.

Now, Fortnite's publisher Epic Games has introduced an account merge tool that unifies all of your game progress across all platforms - giving you a single login for every version of Fortnite across PC, PS4, Xbox Live, Nintendo Switch and mobile.

Your account must not now be banned or disabled.

As for the actual Fortnite account merging, it's an incredibly easy task. In other words: if you played on PS4 then on Switch, you can merge them and pick a primary (the secondary gets disabled). Save The World is slightly more limited: you can only merge Llamas, Defenders, Heroes, Schematics, Survivors, XP, Evolution, and Perk Materials. Head to the Epic Games site to read the complete breakdown of what will happen, what will be kept, and what will be lost.

As might be expected, there are a few things that will not survive the account merge: Unreal Marketplace items, Creative Islands, and Save the World account level and progress.

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