CARY – If Fortnite players didn’t have enough problems already due to the legal war raging between Fortnite publisher Epic Games and Apple, here’s another:

As of Friday, Sept. 11 Apple will no longer let Fortnite and other Epic Games customers “Sign In With Apple.”

Apple already has banned Fortnite due to rival lawsuits over fees. A restraining order has kept Epic’s non-Fortnite availability intact.

But Fortnite …

This is no simple issue. Apple provides one of the most popular gateways to Fortnite and Epic.

“If you have previously used “Sign In with Apple”, please update your Epic Games account email address and password immediately so that you can still login after September 11, 2020,” Epic warns in a notice.

So what do the players have to do?

Epic says:

“Login to the Epic Games General Settings page with your Apple ID and update your email address to reflect your current email address.

“If you were unable to update your email address prior to Sign In with Apple support ending and are no longer seeing Sign In with Apple as a login option, we still may be able to recover your account manually. Please click CONTACT US below and provide us with the verification code that was in the email you received about this (the email subject line is: IMPORTANT! Epic Games account update required for continued access). The verification code you received should look like this: ABC-123-DEF

“Update Your Password

“If you have used Sign In with Apple you may not have set up an Epic Games account password previously so you’ll need to do that now.

“Login to the Epic Games Change Your Password page with your Apple ID and enter a new password.

“If you were unable to update your password prior to Sign In with Apple being removed but your email address was correct, please follow the steps on the Epic Games Forgot Password page.”
