WARNING! Choosing Other Platforms

After creating an account, you can link it to other platforms! We recommend to choose only one for console platforms like the PS4, XBox One, & Nintendo Switch as there is account lock-out!

PC & Mobile

For PC & Mobile users, no need to link a separate account, just sign in using your Epic Games account details.

Console & Switch

For PS4, XBox One, and Nintendo Switch, the Epic Games Launcher needs to be downloaded on PC or Mac. Users must choose the appropriate platform to sign into.

Link your Epic Games account with your chosen platform's specific account and authorize connection!

Account Lock-out

There is an account lock-out when you link your Epic Games account to one console platform.

For example, if you connected your Epic Games account on your Nintendo Switch, you need to create another Epic Games account to connect to your PSN.
