Being able to play against your friends regardless of what device they used has been one of Fortnite's strengths, but it made managing game resources sometimes more hard than it needed to be.

Account merging is a feature Epic announced at the end of previous year, shortly after Sony agreed to cross-platform play. Don't panic! You'll have to wait two weeks for the V-Bucks and cosmetic items you had on your secondary account to appear on your primary account.

The process is actually very simple.

You just select the account that you want as the primary and then merge it with your other account. Epic has created a way for to merge Epic accounts if you created separate logins on your PlayStation 4, Xbox One and/or the Nintendo Switch.

Here's the biggest one: the merging tool will only help Fortnite players who are still dealing with the aftereffects of those cross-platform problems.

Elizabeth Warren makes it official: She's running for president
It is not only Lawrence's connection to labor history that makes the city appealing for Warren to officially launch her campaign. In the announcement, she called President Trump "the latest - and most extreme - symptom of what's gone wrong in America".

Of course, there are some caveats involved.

To be eligible, one account must have played on Xbox One or Switch and the other on PS4 to be eligible for merge. Your secondary accounts "Console Login" will be instantly linked to your Primary Account.

Accounts can not not be banned or disabled. Both accounts must have been actively played on before September 28th 2018.

Players should be able to find the new merge account options on the official Epic website, under the account merge option, by using this Account Merge link. 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.

Do not forget to think carefully about whether you want to merge your accounts or not. "Save the World will allow you to merge Llamas, Defenders, Heroes, Schematics, Survivors, XP, Evolution and Perk Materials".
