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

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

This means that players will be able to use their V-Bucks on any of their available accounts - not just the account associated with the V-Bucks.

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.

Neither of your accounts can be now banned or disabled because, you know, that's the rules. (If you made progress in Save the World, you can transfer that XP).

Having chosen the primary, Fortnite fans will then need to select a secondary account to be merged and then disabled. To be eligible for linking, one account must have played on Xbox One or Switch and the other on PS4 before September 28, 2018, and you obviously can not be banned.

Players will need to choose two accounts.

All scheduled gigs have been postponed as Buckingham heals. "He looks forward to recovery and putting this behind him". His former band mates have publicly expressed good wishes to Buckingham, tweeting: "We are saddened by this news".

The campaign will allow you to merge "Llamas, ' 'Defenders, ' 'Heroes, ' 'Schematics, ' 'Survivors, ' experience, 'Evolution, ' and 'Perk Materials" only. Then log into your account from another platform to merge it with your primary account. This is the main account that all other accounts will "merge" to - the account that will end up being the final, main account at the end of the process.

Go to the Epic Games Account Merge page.

There are a few conditions imposed on account mergers, but they all make sense. This merger tool is specifically created to help people affected by the Sony account lockdown issue, and will not help you merge two unrelated old accounts.

Verify the merge through email addresses. Fortnite cosmetics and Vbucks will be moved for example, but other items like Unreal marketplace items and Save The World progress will not.

The first stage of the process is heading over to the Epic Games website and selecting the merge account option.
