It’s a big week for battle royale on the go. The mobile version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, the one developed by Tencent Games and previously released as PUBG: Exhilarating Battlefield in China, is now available for Android in North America.

PUBG Mobile for Android got a soft launch in Canada this week. It’s available to download from Google Play, as long as you’re in Canada (or can convince the Google Play Store that you’re in Canada). The Android version of the game requires Android 5.1.1 or above and at least 2 GB of RAM, according to the game’s listing.

The mobile version of PUBG is mostly faithful to its PC and Xbox One counterpart; it features the game’s original map, though it’s understandably less graphically impressive.

PUBG Mobile was released in Canada the same day that the game’s chief competitor, Epic Games’ Fortnite: Battle Royale, came to iOS devices in preview form.
