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

The competition between Battle Royale-inspired shooters continues to heat up, with both PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite looking to widen their respective player bases by expanding into mobile devices.

The game's soft launch in the West could mean that a US release is not far away, but no release date has been revealed.

The mobile version was developed with Chinese company TenCent, and is said to be a faithful recreation of the battle royale blockbuster. Considering how quickly one can die in the game, the largest figure is understandably attributed to the use of healing items, as more than 4.5 billion bandages have been used in PUBG on Xbox One thus far.

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.

However, the catch is that PUBG Mobile is now only officially available in the Google Play Store of Canada.

The game claims to support over 500 Android devices, as long as you have at least Android 5.1.1 or above and at 2 GB RAM. According to a quick guide by Newsweek, it will require the installation of VPN software to trick your Android smartphone or tablet into thinking that it is located in Canada.

In recognition of reaching the 5M player milestone, we have a few treats to share.

You can check out the Google Play page for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds mobile or its official Facebook page. Unlike PUBG Mobile, the mobile version of Fortnite is cross-play compatible with PC, Mac and PlayStation 4.
