Fortnite account merging is finally here

New World MMO 4 via Amazon 2019

The ability to merge your Fortnite accounts to share cosmetics and pool V-Bucks across different platforms is finally possible. 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.

If you have duplicate 3rd party login like Facebook on both your Primary and Secondary account, the Secondary login will be unlinked. There's also a caveat: Merging is only available if at least one of the accounts was in use before September 28, 2018, and, naturally, neither account can be banned or disabled. And whatever progress or money you made on one account couldn't transfer over to the other.

In December, Epic Games announced it would delay the release of Fortnite's account merge feature until early 2019. Another caveat is that both accounts must have been used before 28 September 2018 to be eligible - one used to play on a Switch, and another on a PS4.

As for the actual Fortnite account merging, it's an incredibly easy task. If you've been playing Save The World, you will bring over your secondary account's XP, Heroes, Llamas, Defenders, Schematics, Survivors, Evolution and Perk Materials.

New Trailer for ‘Anthem’ Reveals Endgame Loot, Challenges, Strongholds, and More
Once you reach Anthem's endgame content, you can grab new gear in a variety of ways - all as challenging as they are rewarding. To start, three extra difficulty modes will be unlocked once you reach pilot level 30, the game's level cap.

Players should be able to find the new merge account options on the official Epic Games.com website, under the account merge option, by using this Account Merge link.

Go to the Epic Games Account Merge page. Then log into your account from another platform to merge it with your primary account.

Select the account you want to keep (primary account). 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. The whole process should take about two weeks, after which all items and V-Bucks will be in a unified under one happy roof.

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.
