You Can Now Merge Your PS4, Xbox One and Switch Fortnite Accounts

Here's how to merge Fortnite accounts from PlayStation 4 to other consoles and transfer items from secondary accounts into the player's primary account. 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.

While Fortnite players who played across multiple systems previously needed to have a separate account in order to do so, Epic is now allowing players to merge accounts, allowing them to use the same one across multiple platforms.

It's been a long time coming, but players finally have the option to merge various Epic Accounts into one single account.

The primary reason you'd need to merge two Epic accounts is because you started playing on PS4 and were forced to create a secondary account to play on Xbox One or Switch. The website asks you to select a primary account, the account that all the other accounts will join. "28 2018 to be eligible", the post read. Account merging unites the purchases of the PS4 account and a secondary account.

The merger process itself is straightforward: pick the primary account you want to keep using, and the secondary account you want to move all the stuff over from (you'll need access to the email addresses used for each so you can copy in authentication codes).


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

Marketplace Items, Creative Islands and Save the World account level progress do not merge.

This means though that the account combining process does not apply to PC or mobile players players, as the account merging will only be available for Xbox Live, Playstation Network and Nintendo Online.

Players will remember the times when PS4 fans were unable to use numerous cross-platform options others could with the likes of Xbox One and Switch. (If you made progress in Save the World, you can transfer that XP).

For those looking to take advantage of the merge process, the transferable items differ depending on game mode. Do you at all play Fortnite on a regular basis?
