Fortnite players can finally merge accounts, but it's complicated

New World MMO 1 via Amazon 2019

Both accounts must have been actively played on before September 28th 2018.

Merging accounts will transfer your V-Bucks and cosmetic items from Battle Royale.

When Fortnite became one of the most popular games on the planet, Sony found itself with a problem.

First of all, the timing for when the accounts were made is important and can affect eligibility.

To be eligible, one account must have played on Xbox One or Switch and the other on PS4 to be eligible for merge.

Banned and disabled accounts can not be merged, obviously.

You can begin the process by heading on over to the official site, where Epic has set up a page especially for this. If you have 3rd party login (such as Facebook) on both accounts, the secondary login will be unlinked.

And then, three months later, Sony enabled cross-platform play for Fortnite.

Account merging has finally come to Fortnite, which will allow players to assign a primary account to their Epic Games profile and merge a second one into it.

Epic has finally flipped the switch that lets you merge all of your Fortnite accounts, regardless of the platform.

The secondary account will be "merged and disabled" and the login on your secondary account will be linked to your primary account instead.

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

The user must have access to all associated email addresses used in the Fortnite accounts.

Epic Games has also confirmed the items that will not be merged, as well as those that can be. 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.

Other Items such as Unreal Marketplace items, 'Creative Islands, ' and campaign account level and progress will not be merged over from your secondary account.
