Fortnite's account merging tool is finally live

Firstly, to be eligible for account merging, you must have played Fortnite on Xbox One or Switch with one of your accounts, and on PlayStation 4 with the other, before September 28, 2018. So, make sure you set your Primary Account as the one you use the most (the one you would be most upset if they deleted it). Players will need to choose one account to act as the primary account and a secondary account.

Fortnite account merges are now possible, a little over half a year after cross-platform incompatibility issues came to a head.

There are a few conditions imposed on account mergers, but they all make sense.

Merged accounts also can't be now banned, or disabled and players will need to be able to access all email addresses associated with the accounts they want to merge. So while Battle Royale will allow all cosmetic items to be merged, and Save the World allows all, "Llamas, Defenders, Heroes, Schematics, Survivors, XP, Evolution and Perk Materials" to be merged, any other items obtained through the Unreal Marketplace, Creative Islands, and Save the World account level and progress won't get merged.

However, many players of the popular survival game with multiple consoles had already resorted to creating a second account on the PlayStation 4, meaning some now have purchases and virtual currency V-bucks split between two accounts.

To be honest, it doesn't really matter which account you set as your primary, that's down to you. Log into your main account on the left-hand login section. You can finally merge it with your Xbox, PC, Nintendo Switch or mobile account, GameSpot reports. It comes all the way long with a new feature of merging out the accounts of all platforms together.

Is this a feature you've been waiting to use?

Accounts can not not be banned or disabled.

Once the account merge is done, your primary account will keep all of your "Fortnite" progress.

Epic Games has also confirmed the items that will not be merged, as well as those that can be. The only problem is that it takes time and you will not be allowed to use the secondary account for around two weeks.

If you switched platforms to play with friends or simply found you preferred one over another, you may have had to leave some money and progress behind.
