‘PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds Mobile’ now available in Canada

Gamers who are interested in a mobile version of Player Unknown’s BattleGrounds (PUBG) battle royale game have been watching to see when it might be available for their market. In a bit of a twist on many typical game releases, PUBG Mobile first surfaced for the Chinese market back in December. Since then, consumers in Western markets have had to wait for a release. Yesterday PUBG Mobile was spotted in the Google Play Store for Canada.

PUBG Mobile was developed by Lightspeed and Quantum Studio with the help and supervision of Bluehole. Bluehole was the game’s original developer for the PC and Xbox One version of the game. Like the original, PUBG Mobile has players dropping into a battlefield where up to 100 players can be supported. Once on the ground, players try to find weapons, vehicles, tools and other supplies to try to survive while killing off everyone else in an attempt to be the last player standing.

The battle royale genre has been heating up lately thanks to the popularity on console titles like PUBG or Fortnite from Epic Games. For the latter, a mobile version for smartphones is in the works and will allow those users to engage in combat with players on other platforms, a feature currently not available in PUBG Mobile.

The release of the Canadian version is a hopeful sign that the U.S. release may not be far behind.
