Fortnite now lets you merge accounts on different platforms

New World MMO 3 via Amazon 2019

To have a Switch/Xbox account and PS4 login as well that you had created or played before the end of September of 2018. Prior to Sony starting its beta for cross-platform multiplayer last spring, you had to create a separate Epic account to play Fortnite on the PS4 - even if you already created an account on another platform.

In September, "Fortnite" creator Epic Games promised that the account merge tool would be able to rectify the issue with PlayStation 4 profiles and allow players to combine their progress from different accounts. 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. It's unclear how long this tool will be active, so if you have a console login that you don't plan on using now that cross-play is available on all platforms, it might be a good idea to start the merging process as soon as possible.

Neither of your accounts can be now banned or disabled because, you know, that's the rules. Battle Royale players may merge all of their cosmetic items, while Save the World players can merge only their Llamas, Defenders, Heroes, Schematics, Survivors, XP, Evolution and Perk Materials. From there, they'll be asked to select the accounts they want to link together. Yes, the account merging tool is finally live, allowing players to turn two accounts into one. Below, we'll tell you how to do it and why it's useful.

Your account must not now be banned or disabled. The Account Merge tool will transfer V-Bucks and items into a single, linked primary account.

MLB Getting Rid of Disabled List, Sort Of
The DL will now be known as the "injured list" according to an ESPN report , which cited a source familiar with the MLB's plan. It's the "injured reserve list" in NFL and NHL, the "inactive list" in the NBA.

As for the actual Fortnite account merging, it's an incredibly easy task. Save the World progress and Creative Mode maps from the secondary account will be left behind.

It's not quite as simple as that, and developers Epic Games have mapped out a few terms and conditions players should be aware of. The only problem is that it takes time and you will not be allowed to use the secondary account for around two weeks.

There are a few things that you can not transfer to a new account, such as your Battle Pass and maps made in creative mode. Are you playing Fortnite?
