PUBG Mobile for Android beta on the BlackBerry Motion

Perhaps taking advantage of the fact Fortnite for Android is not yet available, the folks behind PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds have gone ahead and launched PUBG Mobile in beta form for folks living in Canada, although it has been available in China for a few months now. As it is a beta, the listing notes the current version 'does not represent the final quality of the game, as we will keep optimizing existing content and adding new features.'

Game Features

  • Officially licensed PUBG on Mobile - An authentic port of the PC version. 100 players are dropped on an enormous 8x8 km battlefield. Players fight to survive and eliminate each other through strategy and skill. The last one standing wins! Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner!
  • Realistic Graphics and HD Audio - Unreal Engine 4 brings a phenomenal visual experience with detail rendering, an expansive HD map, and realistic scenes.High-quality audio with 3D sound effects and 7.1 channel surround sound makes players feel like they are on the real battlefield.
  • Realistic Shooting - With a large selection of firearms, melee weapons, and throwables with realistic ballistics and trajectories, this is the perfect combat experience on mobile.
  • Travel in Style - Drive one of a variety of vehicles to escape from your foes or to stalk your prey.
  • Team-Up with Friends and Use Voice Chat - Invite friends to team-up, head into battle together and collaborate over voice chat.
  • Fair Gaming Environment - Armed with powerful anti-cheating mechanisms and optimized for many devices, ensuring a fun and fair environment for players.

As for the specs required to play, you'll need Android 5.1.1 or above and at least 2 GB RAM. When downloaded, the full game uses over 700MB of space as well, something to consider. The Google Play listing notes that PUBG Mobile has support for over 500 different Android devices but given the attention on the game right now, and it being beta, you still might run into some issues. Additionally, if you're not in Canada, you can find the APK elsewhere, but alas, you load those APK's at your own risk. Will you be giving it a go? Let me know in the comments.
