Pokémon Go Field Test Sign-Up Live In U.S.
Pokémon Go is scheduled to release this year for iOS and Android devices. It’s a game being created by Niantic in coordination with The Pokémon Company. Since it relies on real world data and there are a lot of differing factors in each country, it’s necessary for them to test the game prior to launch to try and work out the bugs. As such, it’s now America’s turn to volunteer to assist in the development of the game.
Simply go to http://pokemongo.nianticlabs.com and you can sign up for a chance to be chosen to test out the game early. No word on how many people will be let into the test or how long it will last, but you won’t get the chance if you don’t enter. You will need a Gmail address to sign up. Good luck!
