We’ve noticed that a few of you have questions about how the Epic Games accounts work and how it relates to Alpha registration. We have added this question to our FAQ to help clear things up:
I tried to sign in using the email address I registered for the Alpha with and it says I don’t have an account. I registered for the Alpha months ago, does this mean that my registration didn’t go through?
If you registered for the Fortnite Alpha earlier this year we didn’t yet have an account system in place. Don’t panic! Your Alpha registration indeed went through and you were and are among the people we are selecting from. The time when you registered for the Alpha has no effect on when you will get in. Feel free to register again if you’d like to go ahead and set up an account. You don’t need an Epic Games Account until it’s time to play but signing up for one now will allow you to reserve your online ID.
