First Japan, followed by Australia and New Zealand, now…United States!
Fans in the United States will now have the chance to be included as field tester for the much-awaited mobile game, Pokemon GO. You don’t need to rely anymore on leaks from the on-going field tests just to get some details on the upcoming augmented-reality game from The Pokemon Company and Niantic. You’ll be able to try out the game yourself – that is if you got lucky to be selected from thousands and thousands of fans who have been waiting for their turn to play the game!
How to sign up? Just go to the Pokemon GO official website and register. The announcement was done by The Pokemon Company and Niantic according to IGN. The development team stresses in the site that "The app is still in active development, so it has a limited set of features at the moment and there may be things that don't work properly."
Regarding the recent United States expansion, the development team said that:
"Because the game involves numerous people playing in multiple countries at the same time, we have a lot to test before we publicly launch. This is why we are asking for your help. We would love for you to - if selected - download the field test version and play it. Your regular gameplay and feedback will help us iterate, polish and make the game launch-ready."
The same requirements apply to those who will sign up for the US field test. Players must keep everything confidential, a Version 4.3 for Android users or an iPhone 5 with iOS 8 version for all Apple users.
Polygon wrote that any development created during the pre-release will be entirely wiped out before the release of the final game. Niantic and The Pokemon Company have not yet released the specific date for the launch of Pokemon GO this 2016.
