If you were hoping to hop on Fortnite and explore everything Chapter 4 brings to the table today, you'll have to wait a little bit longer for Epic to fix a nasty bug that appeared on the Android version of the game. Epic has confirmed the issue and said it's currently working on a fix for Android players hoping to play as soon as possible.

Right now, Android users attempting to update Fortnite to Chapter 4, version 23 of the game, are receiving an error that reads "LIBRARY-IN-NOSIGNATURES." Likely, this has something to do with the game installing outside of the Play Store via the Epic launcher but don't worry, Epic Games will have it fixed soon enough. The company confirmed as much on Twitter (opens in new tab).
