How to Link Xbox Account to Epic Games

If you play Fortnite on your Xbox console, it’s a good idea to link your account to an Epic Games account. This allows you to merge existing accounts and share new skins, gadgets, seasons, unlocked content and purchases across platforms. There are two ways to link up your Xbox One and Epic accounts, and the one that you choose depends on where you started playing Fortnite. Before connecting accounts, make sure pop-ups are enabled on your computer.

If you have an existing game on your Xbox One console but you haven’t created an Epic Games account online, go to and click “sign in.” When the site asks whether or not you play Fortnite, you’ll select “Yes.” Choose the Xbox icon, and a pop-up window will ask you to sign into your Xbox Live account. Once you’ve done that, fill out the Epic Games form that appears. Validate the account through the email address that you’ve provided, and the progress you’ve made on the Xbox will now be connected to your Epic account.

If you already have an Epic account for PC, iPhone or Android and want to connect your existing game progress to an Xbox One console, go to and sign in to your account. Hover over your display name, and click “Account.” Click on “Connected Account” and choose “Connect” beneath the Xbox icon. When the pop-up appears, click “Link Your Account.” Another pop-up will appear, where you’ll sign in with your Xbox Live account and confirm the connection.

You can link Epic games across multiple platforms and consoles through an Epic account, including the Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, Twitch and Github using the same process above and selecting the appropriate platform or console when prompted. This will allow you to share game progress, stats, upgrades and loot across all platforms through one account.
