PUBG Mobile Coming To North America On Android, Available First In Canada

Limited 'Soft Launch' of Official PUBG Mobile Game Surprises Everyone (Not Really...) PUBG Hits the 5 Million Players Milestone on Xbox One

The game, which was developed by Lightspeed and Quantum Studio and published by Chinese company Tencent, is now available to download in the Canadian Google Play Store.

PUBG Mobile game has not been made available for the US presently, but if you're a true and anxious gamer, a little fiddling with the VPN might not hurt all that much since the game is free anyway.

Not long ago, Bluehole Studio finally revealed the long-awaited 2018 Road Map for the battle royale title, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, giving fans of the game new maps, an emote system, new cosmetics, and much more to look forward to this year.

The first of the official PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds mobile versions was recently released in China and is the one now available in Canada.

This particular soft launch is good news for two reasons. A soft launch, similar to an early access release, enables developers put the game out in a region to check interest and functionality before going in for a wider release.

A beta version of PUBG Mobile landed on the Google Play Store in Canada last night.

The news was confirmed this morning on PUBG Mobile's official Facebook page.

The Xbox One version of the game is also cross-play compatible with PC, Mac and mobile, but unfortunately not the PlayStation 4.

Xbox One S 1TB console with Monster Hunter World and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds for $289.99 (a $70 discount off the bundle and extra game). The game is also set to release beyond just Canada, though we don't know the details yet on the North American plans at this time. You will need Android Lollipop 5.1.1 or above and 2GB (or more) of RAM.
