Epic Games announced that the much anticipated account merge feature for console players finally live. To be clear, everything is going to be useful if you have V-Bucks, the name of the official currency of Roblox, or any collectibles like outfits or emotes that are locked to another platform that you do not typically play on.
Since last fall, when Sony finally relented and opened up the PlayStation platform for the gamers of Fortnite, players have been allowed to move their Fortnite accounts between PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile. However, because they prevented PS4 players from logging in on Nintendo Switch or Xbox if they ever authenticated their account through its PSN system, meaning there was a segment of Fortnite players who may have had some collectibles and currency stuck on he PS4 version of the game, or alternatively stuck on the Nintendo Switch or Xbox portion if they happened to be mainly the players of PS4.
Epic Games stated it was working on a solution slated to come out by the end of the year, but in November, the developer delayed it. Now, it is finally ready for prime time. The process of transferring purchased V-Bucks on mobile to Xbox, PS4, or PC is relatively simple, despite the entire situation being pretty messy. You basically need to log into whatever account that you would prefer to become your main account, and then separately log into the account that you would like to be your secondary account. Actually, the thing works for both mobile and PC logins, but chances are you were using the same account across the platforms. It is only the players of consoles who were locked out between PS4, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch.
From there, the secondary account will be linked to your main account and disabled. It means you will not be able to log into it ever again. Two weeks after that, though, your cosmetic items and V-Bucks balance will appear in your main account.
Before trying to transfer the V-Bucks, you need to know that there are some limitations. First, an account must have played on Xbox One or Nintendo Switch and the other on PS4 before September 28, 2018 to be eligible. Second, you account must not currently be banned or disabled. Third, in game items and V-Bucks will be held for two weeks before they are merged to your main account. Fourth, you will need access to all email address that are associated with accounts you want to merge. Fifth, if you have a duplicate third party login such as Facebook, on both your main and secondary account, the secondary one login will be unlinked. You are able to unlink it prior to merging. Sixth, Battle Royale will allow you to merge all cosmetic items. Meanwhile, Save the World will allow you to merge llamas, defenders, heroes, schematics, survivors, XP, evolution and perk materials. Seventh, the other ones like Unreal Marketplace items, Creative Island and Save the World account level and progress will not be merged.
