How do I change my name in The Finals?
Embark’s system automatically assigns user names for new accounts, all built according to the same scheme. If you want to play with your own name, you first need to change it. However, there is no way to do this in the game; you can only do it on Embark’s official website.
First, log in with the platform you use to play The Finals, or create a completely new account. Then link your accounts. Afterward, go to your profile page. Here you will see both your display name and the registered email address.
Click on “Edit” under Display Name and enter the name you desire. Save and confirm that you have read the warning notice. The changes you have made should be immediately visible in the game. If your old name still appears, restart the game. Now your new display name should appear in the top right corner of the main menu.
You can change your display name in this way every ten minutes. In the same way, you can also change the email address used.
