Finally, the merger of Fortnite accounts allows Xbox, PS4 and Nintendo Switch players to save V-bucks and skins

The creator of Fortnite Epic Games has brought one of the most awaited features to his successful game, finally allowing players to merge their accounts on all consoles with a set of login credentials.

Upgrading means that players on Nintendo Switch, PS4 or Xbox One can consolidate their V-bucks and collectibles – objects such as skins and emotes – on different platforms.

Previously, Sony prevented PS4 players from accessing their Fortnite accounts from other consoles, which means that items would be inaccessible if they accessed from a rival console.

Epic Games has announced the long-awaited feature merger of the account on its website, which explains the steps to follow to activate it.

Basically, players will have to choose which account will be their main account and link any other account to it.

The articles will be automatically transferred from the secondary account to the primary account after two weeks and the secondary account will be deactivated.

You need to pay attention to different terms and conditions for the merger of the account to succeed.

"An account must have played on Xbox One or Switch and the other on PS4 before September 28th 2018. Your account must not be currently banned or disabled," notes from Epic Games.

"If you have a duplicate third-party login like Facebook on both your primary and secondary accounts, the secondary login will be unlinked. You can unlink it before merging.

"Battle Royale will allow you to combine all the cosmetic items: Save the World will allow you to combine Llamas, Defenders, Heroes, Schematics, Survivors, XP, Evolution and Perk Materials.

"Other items like Unreal Marketplace items, Creative Islands and the Save The World account level and progress will not be merged from your secondary account."

Since launching in 2017, Fortnite has become one of the most popular video games of all time, attracting over 200 million players. A recent game concert saw 10 million players watch a set of 10 minutes of DJ Marshmello.
