Fortnite now lets you merge accounts on different platforms

Being able to play against your friends regardless of what device they used has been one of Fortnite's strengths, but it made managing game resources sometimes more hard than it needed to be.

"You'll need access to all email addresses that are associated with accounts you wish to merge".

In December, Epic Games announced it would delay the release of Fortnite's account merge feature until early 2019. 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.

Accounts aren't merged immediately, but users who have already gone through the process will get a countdown timer in their Fortnite battle lobby counting down to when V-Bucks and cosmetics will be available.

When you're ready to get started, head on over here. Players should select whichever account they want to continue using to play as their "Primary" account, and then they will have the opportunity to transfer their cosmetics and V-Bucks.

Select the account you want to merge and disable (secondary account).

Players must have used an Xbox or Switch account and a PlayStation account before September 28th 2018 for this tool to work.

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.

If you have duplicate 3rd party login like Facebook on both your Primary and Secondary account, the Secondary login will be unlinked.

Keep in mind to think carefully about whether you want to merge your accounts or not.

You can merge all cosmetics from Battle Royale. The biggest stuff you'll have to leave behind on your secondary account are any Creative Mode Islands you've built and any Save The World mission/level progress (individual items like Llamas and Heroes will transfer).
