Pokemon GO Field Test Sign Up form

If you’ve been dying to try out the new Pokemon GO game on Android (or iOS), good news: Field Test signups are now live for the US. The signup page for the official beta test has just gone up, detailing a quick confidentiality agreement as well as some of the requirements expected from those signing up. Well, if you’re actually chosen to participate (entry isn’t guaranteed).

What is Pokemon GO?

Pokémon GO is a real world game that will launch on iOS and Android devices in 2016. This game is being produced by Niantic, Inc. in collaboration with The Pokémon Company, and combines mobile location technology and augmented reality to create a unique game experience that motivates players to go outside, explore, and catch wild Pokémon in the world around them. Because the game involves numerous people playing in multiple countries at the same time, we have a lot to test before we publicly launch.

According to the post on the Pokemon GO Field Test page, the beta will require an Android device running 4.3 or higher (iPhone 5 with iOS 8 or above) and is only open to those in Australia, New Zealand, or now — the United States. If that sounds like you, signups are being held at the link down below. Good luck!
