Yes, Fortnite Chapter 4 is broken on Android. For now.

What you need to know

  • Fortnite Chapter 4 launched early on Sunday morning, December 4, 2022 on all supported platforms.
  • The Android version is currently broken, causing users to get an error when trying to update to the latest version, v23.
  • Epic has confirmed the issue and is working on a fix.

If you were hoping to jump on Fortnite and explore all that Chapter 4 has to offer today, you’ll have to wait a little longer for Epic to fix a nasty bug that appeared in the Android version of the game. Epic has confirmed the issue and said it is currently working on a solution for Android players who want to play as soon as possible.

At this time, Android users trying to update Fortnite to Chapter 4, version 23 of the game are getting an error message that reads “LIBRARY-IN-NOSIGNATURES”. It probably has something to do with installing the game outside of the Play Store via the Epic launcher, but don’t worry, Epic Games will fix it soon enough. The company confirmed as much on Twitter (opens in new tab).
