Surprise! PUBG mobile beta arrives in the West

Android port of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds appears on Canadian store.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has a surprise beta on mobile for players in Canada today after making the trip to Western Android stores.

PUBG has been in development for mobile in China where publisher Tencent has been hard at work targeting the country's mammoth audience of portable gamers.

The localised version of the game, ported by Lightspeed & Quantum, is now on the Canadian Google Play Store and you can download and play the beta right now.

You can also get it outside of Canada if you change your phone's region, however this is likely the first of many beta tests in the West so it's likely we'll see our own version soon enough.

After last night's Ninja X Drake love-in on Battle Royale rival Fortnite, this is a welcome bit of news for Brendan Greene's crew while Epic Games are still gearing up to their own Fortnite Mobile release in the coming weeks.

Here's footage of the Android version of PUBG:


Chris is the captain of the good ship AllGamers, which would explain everything you're seeing here. Get in touch to talk about work or the $6 million Echo Slam by emailing or finding him on Twitter.
