    Here is a link that might help if you are having trouble:
    As long as you are not on PlayStation, apparently Sony won't let you play on other systems with their PSN account... Hopefully, they get this fixed sometime soon. But their war against anything cross play continues.
    PlayStation has currently hijacked players accounts and won't let them go on other platforms. Use the hashtag #crossplaynow to help spread the message that PlayStation gamers want CrossPlay.
    Update on Sony that could help them change their outlook. -

    • Work To Game
      Work To Game  6 months ago

      You won't get banned for logging in on other platforms, if you can't remember you username/password that you used, log in on the epic website using your Nintendo Switch login credentials. :) Or, if you need more help, contact support :)

      @Work To Game can you make a video about it? I tried everything already

    • Work To Game
      Work To Game  10 months ago

      You should be able to login on the website with your switch account, as you have a fortnite account that is connected to your switch, from there, just make sure you can login to the game on your PC. If it's giving you fits, let me know and maybe I can help. But we'd need to do a zoom meeting so I can see your screen. :)

      It allows you to continue playing on any platform (Playstation coming soon) so that you can play on your PC/Console/Phone with the same progression on all of them, and it will allow you if you wish, to play against them as well.

    Please help I unlinked my fortnite account from my Nintendo switch to play on my ps4 now when I try linking it back to my switch it says this account is associated with another user but I already unlinked it from psn help!

      Work To Game I got it to work now I can play on my switch

    • Work To Game
      Work To Game  11 months ago

      Agreed, and hopefully, it will be a quick beta. :)

      LAKERS4LIFE 11 months ago +1

      Work To Game nice good to know they are fixing it thanks!

    • Work To Game
      Work To Game  11 months ago

      Ok, so good news and bad news. The good news this is only going to be temporary. The bad news is, right now Sony is still easing into cross play. Pretty much they locked any account that has ever come into contact with a PS4 to just them, forever. However they recently reversed that policy. But they are still beta testing the system. So just note it’s temporary and I’m happy Sony is doing the right thing, but if they hadn’t just announced that then I’d have nothing but bad news for you.
