Fortnite update 2.83 August 28 patch notes:
Here’s what the Fortnite suppor Twitter had to say about today’s patch:
We’ve begun to deploy a maintenance patch for stability on PlayStation 4 and PC. On PlayStation 4, this patch addresses the crashing issue for players with a non-English system language.
The official Fortnite Trello board, it mentions the PS4 non-English crashing thing as well and a workaround (which might not be needed once patch has been applied).
Crashing on PlayStation 4 for players with non-English language system settings
We’re aware of some instances of crashing for PlayStation 4 players with non-English language system settings.
As a workaround, you can set your system language to English while keeping your Fortnite language to your preferred language.
If you haven’t picked up the new Battle Pass yet, here’s a preview of what’s inside. There are still other issues being looked at by Epic, such as issues not being able to purchase the Chapter 2 Season 4 Battle Pass. According to the studio, a fix is currently in development (for sure since, y’know, this is about money and all). If this necessitates another patch, we’ll let our readers know.
