Great news for all of you Android-using, mobile gaming-loving smartphone and tablet users out there. It’s now possible to download the Timi Studio version of the extremely popular PUBG battle royale game to be sideloaded onto your device.

PUBG – in both of its iterations – was initially released for Android devices on the Chinese Play Store. That limitation means that only those with an Android device and a Chinese Play Store account were able to download the wonderfully exciting game in an official capacity.

Obviously, as is the way with the world these days, it wasn’t long before non-Chinese users were able to grab the Chinese version of the game and battling through the language problems in order to play the game.

Tencent Games and Quantum & Lightspeed Studio did show some grace to Canadian users by releasing a new English version of their variant to the Canadian Play Store, however, that version was only available to those in Canada and was only for the “Exhilarating Battle” version of the game. The good news is that it’s now actually possible to download the APK file for the Army Attack/Assault version of the popular title, which is the land, sea, and air version of the PUBG game created by Timi Studio in conjunction with Tencent Games.

With the APK version in your possession, it’s possible to sideload that onto an Android device with unknown source installations activated in order to start playing PUBG: Army Attack/Assault immediately.

It is worth noting that this isn’t an updated English version of the game, meaning that if you choose to grab the APK and get it sideloaded to your device then you will need to battle with the fact that it’s narrated and annotated in Chinese language. You will also need a WeChat account in order to log in and access the game itself. We can’t get the APK onto the device for you but we can give you the information that you need, including how to create that account to get access: PUBG Mobile WeChat Login: Here’s How To Sign Up For An Account.
