The wait is finally over for PUBG Mobile fans in India. Krafton has officially announced the launch date of Battlegrounds Mobile India, the Indian version of the popular battle royale game. The game will be released on May 29 and will be available for pre-load from May 28.
Battlegrounds Mobile India is a rebranded version of PUBG Mobile, which was banned in India last year due to data privacy and security concerns. Krafton has made several changes to the game to comply with the Indian regulations and cater to the local audience. Some of these changes include green blood effects, fully clothed characters, and restrictions on playing time and spending for users below 18 years of age.
Krafton has also promised to provide exclusive in-game events, tournaments, and leagues for Battlegrounds Mobile India players. The game will feature the same gameplay modes as PUBG Mobile, such as solo, duo, squad, classic, arcade, and ranked matches. The game will also have maps like Erangel, Miramar, Sanhok, and Vikendi.
To play Battlegrounds Mobile India, users need to pre-register on the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. Users who pre-register will get early access to the game and some special rewards such as outfits, skins, and weapons. Users can also transfer their PUBG Mobile data to Battlegrounds Mobile India using their Facebook or Twitter accounts.
Battlegrounds Mobile India is expected to be a huge hit among Indian gamers, who have been eagerly waiting for the return of PUBG Mobile. The game has already crossed 20 million pre-registrations in two weeks. Krafton has also partnered with several Indian content creators and influencers to promote the game and create hype among the fans.
Battlegrounds Mobile India is set to compete with other popular battle royale games in India such as Free Fire, Call of Duty: Mobile, and FAU-G. The game will also boost the Indian esports scene and create more opportunities for players, teams, sponsors, and organizers.
Battlegrounds Mobile India is a free-to-play game that requires a stable internet connection and a compatible device. The game is rated 16+ and requires parental consent for users below 18 years of age.
