Everybody who had to split their play time between an Epic Games account associated with PS4 and an Epic Games account associated with Switch or Xbox One can finally get all of their items in one place, though the process does have a few technicalities you should know before starting.

Your account must not now be banned or disabled. So it might be best to stick with the account that's played that the most. Simply go to the Epic Games merge website and select a primary account. You can then use this primary account on any platform, since every version of Fortnite now allows for cross-platform play.

And then, three months later, Sony enabled cross-platform play for Fortnite.

Two weeks after that, cosmetic items and V-Bucks will be transferred to the player's primary account. So if you got super into Creative Mode or Save the World on that second "throwaway" account, you may actually want to use that one as your primary instead. This is the main account that all other accounts will "merge" to - the account that will end up being the final, main account at the end of the process. Save The World is slightly more limited: you can only merge Llamas, Defenders, Heroes, Schematics, Survivors, XP, Evolution, and Perk Materials. Take note though - when you do this, the secondary account is disabled.

Was the Fourth Hottest Year on Record in almost 140 Years
Even an increase of 1.5 degrees will have dire consequences, according to the United Nations science panel on climate change. Since the 1880s, the average global surface temperature has risen about 2 degrees Fahrenheit (1 degree Celsius).

Linking console logins will let you merge all of your Fortnite cosmetic items and V-Bucks into one account, so if you play Fortnite on PS4, Xbox One, and Switch, here's what you need to do.

You can only merge accounts tied to game console networks - PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch - that were used at least once before 28 September 2018. Head to the Epic Games site to read the complete breakdown of what will happen, what will be kept, and what will be lost.

Your account must not now be banned or disabled.

Fortnite Creative will be available December 6 for those with a Battle Pass.
