Epic now lets you merge accounts on Fortnite

New World MMO 4 via Amazon 2019

New World MMO 4 via Amazon 2019

One account must have played on an Xbox One or Nintendo Switch, and the other must have played on PlayStation 4 prior to September 28, 2019. Due to a restriction imposed by Sony, any Fortnite account which had ever been used - even once - to play the game on PS4 couldn't be used on an Xbox One or Switch version of the game.

In June past year, Sony caused outrage when it was discovered playing Fortnite on PS4 meant the same account login wouldn't work on the Nintendo Switch. Players on Xbox and Nintendo Switch were able to log in with the same account from both consoles without issue, and the same account could also be used on Android and iOS devices.

Another limitation is your merge tool only works for cosmetic items; except for Save the World mode that enables you to transfer experience points.

If you have a duplicate 3rd party login, like Facebook, on both your Primary and Secondary account, the Secondary login will be unlinked.

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

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

You'll be asked to input a short code that will be sent to the email address tied to that account.

Epic Games released their new system update to make it possible to unify your best skins into one primary account.

Players who had accessed their Epic Account on Windows, Xbox One or mobile, however, weren't impacted.

The feature is now available but players should know that the process is a bit complicated and it takes some time.

Accounts can not not be banned or disabled.

Remember the PS4 Fortnite account curse? Once you have set your primary and secondary accounts, you will preview exactly what will merge and what won't.

The process of merging an account in Fortnite is straightforward and stress-free. The moving process will take about two weeks, after which your second account will be disabled.

This process sounds scary and daunting but it's actually what we all want. Are you playing Fortnite?

There are a few things that you can not transfer to a new account, such as your Battle Pass and maps made in creative mode. Items from the Unreal Marketplace, Creative Islands, and your Save the World account level and progress will not be moved to your primary account.
