Fortnite account merging feature now live
Posted on February 6, 2019 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
Epic announced a new account merging feature for Fortnite last year. The goal was to give players the opportunity to “combine multiple console-linked accounts to transfer Battle Royale cosmetic item purchases, lifetime wins, V-Bucks, and Save the World campaign access.”
A few months ago it was revealed (and following a delay), account merging is now open for business. Here’s everything you need to know:
HOW IT WORKS
You’ll choose two accounts, first a Primary Account that you wish to continue using. Then you’ll choose a Secondary Account to merge and disable. Your secondary accounts Console Login (e.g. PSN, Xbox Live, Nintendo Online) will be instantly linked to your Primary Account. Two weeks later your Fortnite Cosmetic Items and V-Bucks will be transferred to your Primary Account.
One account must have played on Xbox One or Switch and the other on PS4 before September 28th 2018 to be eligible.
Your account must not currently be banned or disabled.
In-game items and Vbucks will be held for two weeks before they’re merged to your primary account.
You’ll need access to all email addresses that are associated with accounts you wish to merge
If you have duplicate 3rd party login like Facebook on both your Primary and Secondary account, the Secondary login will be unlinked. You can unlink it prior to merging.
Battle Royale will allow you to merge all cosmetic items. Save the World will allow you to merge Llamas, Defenders, Heroes, Schematics, Survivors, XP, Evolution and Perk Materials.
Other Items such as Unreal Marketplace items, Creative Islands, and Save The World account level and progress will not be merged over from your secondary account
If you’d like to merge any accounts, you can do so on the official website here.
