To the surprise of absolutely no one after Epic's announcement of the Fortnite mobile version, PUBG Corp has quietly revealed a soft launch of the official PlayerUknown's Battleground in the West. Canadian players can download a localized Android version from Google Play while other regions can change their phone's region to gain access to the Canadian store as well.

The first of the official PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds mobile versions was recently released in China and is the one currently available in Canada. This particular version was developed by Lightspeed & Quantum, though there are also at least two other versions in the works as well. Whether these will be ported to the West remains to be seen.
