Similarly to other multiplayer games, players have to pick and choose a name for other players to see during a match.
We all want to change our in-game name at some point or another.
Here's how to do so on the PS4!
Unlike PC players, the name associated with your Fortnite account is actually your PSN name.
This means you cannot go on the Epic Games website and change your name if you play on PS4.
Instead, you are going to have to change your PSN handle in order to get a different name appearing on Fortnite.
GAME ON - Console players are the majority of Fortnite players!
The process of this is quite simple, so we'll take you through it now.
Online or PS4
You can change your PSN name either via a web browser or through the PS4 itself.
Below are the full list of steps for changing your PSN name on the PS4!
- Go to Settings
- Then Account Management

- Online ID
Once you are on the Online ID screen, you can enter a new PSN name.
COSTLY - Playstation users are still paying for name changes!
