How to add Epic Friends in Fortnite for Xbox One, PS4, Switch and PC
Epic Games’ Fornite not only makes it possible to play cross-platform with gamers on any current-gen console, but you can also add them as a friend through your Epic Games account. Here’s how to add Epic friends in Fortnite for Xbox One, PS4, Switch, and PC.
With Epic Friends, you can see all your buddies that are online playing Fortnite and easily ask them to join you in a party for some Squads or Duos. It’s worth noting that Epic Friends is different from your friends list on your respective console, so you can only see your buddies online on other platforms from inside Fortnite’s Epic Games menu.
To easily add Epic Friends, simply head to the lobby in Fortnite and bring up the menu. Click on Epic Friends and confirm that you agree to play with gamers on other platforms. Doing this will allow you to gain access to gain access to your Epic Friend list from the get-go.
To send a friend request, head to the Epic Friends menu and click on the silhouette with a plus icon. Doing this will allow you to manually input the name of your friend that you wish to add. Bear in mind that you’re primarily looking for the profile of your friends’ Epic Games account, so you need to input their Epic Games display name or Epic Games email address.
Sending Epic Friend requests en masse is also possible. To send a request to every single person on your platform’s friends lists, simply select the Import All option from inside the manage Epic Friends menu. Sending friend requests by bulk is not possible for your buddies on other platforms.
Accepting friend requests is more straightforward. To accept friend requests, simply head to the menu and toggle on your buddy’s name to add them to your list.
