Fortnite now lets you merge accounts on different platforms

Account merging is a feature Epic announced at the end of past year, shortly after Sony agreed to cross-platform play.

It wasn't that long ago that Sony didn't allow cross play on PS4, so you'd have to have a separate account to play the battle royale shooter on that platform. You can not merge two accounts on the same platform. This would be something for those who have made new accounts either for or because their accounts were locked to their PS4. Then log into your account from another platform to merge it with your primary account.

There are a few qualifications that accounts have to meet in order to be merged, though; console accounts must have played on Xbox Live, Nintendo Online, or PSN before September 28, 2018 to be eligible.

Two weeks after that, cosmetic items and V-Bucks will be transferred to the player's primary account. This means that if you have one account on Xbox and one on Switch, you can't merge them with the tool.

Account merging grants players the ability to use just one (1) account across multiple platforms. If you've been playing Save The World, you will bring over your secondary account's XP, Heroes, Llamas, Defenders, Schematics, Survivors, Evolution and Perk Materials.

Contingency plans called for handlers to use loud noises, flares and alarms to try to distract the tigers, but that didn't work. But tensions "quickly escalated", things became "more aggressive" and Melati died in a fight, the zoo said.

The Secondary account's console login will be immediately linked to your Primary account.

And it has taken many months to get the Fortnite account merger system off the ground.

One account must have played on Xbox One or Switch and the other must have been played on PlayStation 4. Then you'll choose a Secondary Account to merge and disable.

Epic's account-merging feature combines your purchases (and some game progress) to the account you use regularly, and deletes any other account you made because you had to.

The first stage of the process is heading over to the Epic Games website and selecting the merge account option. Just to be clear, the wording specifies that the second account is disabled.
