Pokemon GO U.S. field test sign-ups opened

Test play the upcoming Pokemon mobile game.

Pokemon GO

Niantic Labs has launched sign-ups for the Pokemon GO field test closed beta in North America.

Pokemon GO is Niantic’s upcoming Pokemon game for iOS and Android due out in 2016. It combines mobile location technology and augmented reality to create a unique experience that “motivates players to go outside, explore, and catch wild Pokemon.”

If selected, you will be given a “field test version” of the upcoming mobile game to download and play to provide feedback to the developer. The version provided will have a limited set of features and some things may not work properly as the game is still in development.

Sign up here.

Thanks, Niantic Blog and Pokemon.com.
