PUBG Mobile is now available on iPhone in the U.S. and other regions!

PUBG Mobile on iOS has now rolled out to the U.S. and other regions across the world. Seemingly out of nowhere, PUBG Mobile appeared on the Google Play Store in Canada last week, and now, the game has made its way over to the App Store in the U.S. as well as Canada!

Battle Royale games have exploded in popularity over the last few months, and one of the top dogs is Player Unknown's: Battlegrounds – more commonly referred to as PUBG. Along with successful launches on PC and Xbox, an official mobile version of the game was released in China late last year.

While this news may seem sudden, it makes a lot of sense considering PUBG and Fornite Battle Royale are in direct competition with each other, and we know how big of a splash the beta sign up for Fortnite on iOS caused.

One thing is for certain, its an all-out battle royale for battle royale games on mobile right now, and we the consumers, get to reap the benefits!
