How to Link Your Epic Games Account at

Hey friends! If you’ve ever wanted to connect your gaming console like Xbox, PlayStation, or even Nintendo Switch to your Epic Games account, then you’ve come to the right place. Linking these accounts unlocks sweet features like cross-play, cross-progression, and being able to access all your games and purchases across platforms.

What is Epic Games?

For those unfamiliar, Epic Games is the company behind mega-popular games like Fortnite, Gears of War, and Unreal Tournament. They also built Unreal Engine, a super powerful tool that many developers use to build all kinds of incredible games.

In recent years, Epic has established themselves as a major player in the gaming world thanks largely to Fortnite’s absolutely massive success.

Why Link Your Accounts?

Here are some of the key benefits you get when you link your console account to your Epic Games account:

  • Cross-play – Play with friends no matter what gaming platform they’re on
  • Cross-progression – Pick up where you left off on one device when switching to another
  • Cross-purchases – Access games you’ve bought on any linked platform

Pretty sweet right? Let’s get to the linking!
