The mobile port of the popular multiplayer FPS PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has officially been released for iOS and Android in “many” regions throughout the world, including the United States.

PUBG Mobile received a soft launch in Canada earlier this month, where the Android and iOS versions of the game were tested on March 15 and 16, respectively. This launch was met with “large amounts of positive feedback” and the full game is now available for free via the Google Play and Apple stores.

Published by Tencent, PUBG Mobile has been described as a “faithful adaptation” of the original PC game, and features the its trademark style of gameplay, which involves one hundred players being thrown into a constantly-shrinking map with the goal of being the last person standing.

Tencent’s Corporate Vice President, Chen Jerry, stated that “we are working hard to create an authentic PUBG mobile experience that players new and old will love. A lot of work went into controls and optimization to give players a smooth and intuitive experience.”

Interestingly enough, this announcement coincides with the news that PUBG has reached 5 million players on Xbox One.
