Sony launched a new feature that allows PlayStation Network users to update their ID in certain games, and Fortnite is supported.

Back in October 2018, Sony announced a new feature that would allow players to change their PSN IDs.

Players have been begging for this feature for years, and it finally arrived on April 10, but there are a couple catches.

Players who want to update their PSN ID can do so for free for the first time, however, Sony will charge users if they want to do so another time.

PlayStation users who want to change their PSN ID a second time will be charged $9.99, or $4.99 if they are a PlayStation Plus subscriber.

Players who change their PSN ID will also see their name change in Fortnite.

Fortnite players on PlayStation can now change their PSN IDs!

As soon as PlayStation players load into Fortnite: Battle Royale, they will see their new ID above their name in the lobby.

There are some games that are currently affected by the PSN ID change feature, like Everybody’s Golf, MLB The Show, and LittleBigPlanet 3, which are causing issues like lost game and trophy progress.

Other games that are also currently facing issues are Grand Theft Auto 5, NBA 2K19, and The Last of Us, but those issues are only related to displaying users’ previous PlayStation ID.

All of the current games that are facing support issues seem to be on Sony’s side, so Fortnite players shouldn’t worry.

If anything does happen with PlayStation Fortnite, we will be sure to let you know as soon as we hear.
