Fortnite has been in the news a lot within the past year. Epic Games has been making a lot of noise for various reasons such as different collaborations and even potential lawsuits. As the company looks to continue being well known, they have chosen to add the shared wallet feature to the Playstation consoles.
Update 20.40 has come to Fortnite and the shared wallet is one of the most significant additions during this update. The shared wallet feature allows players to transfer their funds to different consoles that also support the wallet. Specifically, the addition of the Playstation consoles will result in the majority of consoles featuring the wallet.
If the V-Bucks are earned rather than purchased by the player, they are automatically transferred into the player’s account despite the type of console they are using. In contrast, purchased V-Bucks can only be transferred to a console that supports the shared wallet. Currently, the Nintendo Switch is the only console that does not support the shared wallet. The addition of Playstation consoles will make purchasing V-Bucks much more beneficial for players who choose to use multiple consoles with their accounts.
In order to maximize the shared wallet, players should check that they have logged their Epic Games account in to link with their other console accounts. These actions will make the development of the shared wallet much smoother.
As Epic Games looks to continue adding more to Fortnite, fans should not be surprised if the Nintendo Switch soon adds the shared wallet to its features. The shared wallet allows players to connect to different consoles and experience different ways to play.
Epic Games is already continuing to grow after the announcement they will be helping to develop Alan Wake 2, but the company will surely continue adding to their resume with exciting features to their already popular game.
