Now you can play Fortnite with people using rival consoles

New World MMO 4 via Amazon 2019

A major feature that has been significant in the success of Fortnite Battle Royale has been the cross platform play that Fortnite offers between PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.

Here is basically how it works: Using the Fortnite merging tool, choose the platform your primary account is on.

Account merging has finally come to Fortnite, which will allow players to assign a primary account to their Epic Games profile and merge a second one into it.

There are a few conditions imposed on account mergers, but they all make sense.

Shortly after that, the two accounts you signed into will be merged to the Primary Account.

The account merging will not only affect the battle royale version of the game, as Save The World will also be affected when accounts see a merge by a player.

Fortnite account merge is now live for all players who wish to combine their cosmetics from two accounts onto one primary account.

Do not forget to think carefully about whether you want to merge your accounts or not.

You can access the Fortnite account merge tool now on the Epic Games website. This is the account you intend to use as your main one in the future.

This method will allow players to merge either their Xbox One, PS4 and Switch accounts into one, but with some limitations.

But you know like when you order something online and you have to wait for it to ship, get through customs, and delivered?

Your account must not now be banned or disabled. The feature debuted but the separate accounts remained, leaving players with V-Bucks, cosmetics and progress in different accounts.

"Then you'll choose a Secondary Account to merge and disable".

Remember the PS4 Fortnite account curse?

Marketplace Items, Creative Islands and Save the World account level progress do not merge.

If you have two or more accounts, head over to the Account Merge page to consolidate them. Do you at all play Fortnite on a regular basis? A holding period to make sure you're not trying anything phishy like stealing somebody else's account, I guess.
