Battlegrounds Registrations will Start from May 18 on Google Play Store
Battlegrounds Mobile India will start its pre-registrations from May 18 on the Google Play store. The news was shared by the developer on May 15 on its official website. PUBG Mobile was banned in the country back in September 2020, Battlegrounds Mobile India has been developed by a South Korean video game company namely Krafton. The company announced last week that it is launching a similar game to that of PUBG Mobile namely Battlegrounds Mobile India. While we’ve finally got a pre-registration date, but there is no announcement on the release date for the game yet.
Krafton also shared that those who pre-register will get specific rewards that can be claimed after the game will be finally launched in India. It also said, revealed one of the maps that will be present in the game – that appears to be the popular map from PUBG Mobile – Sanhok. Though, it probably may not be called Sanhok.
As per the policy, players under the age of 18 will need to get consent from their parents or guardians to be able to play the game. Parents or guardians who feel that their child has provided some sensitive personal information without their consent can contact the company and request for the data to be deleted from the system.
Battlegrounds Mobile India will have gameplay similarities with PUBG Mobile but come with some exclusive events tailored for the Indian market. It will come with exclusive in-game events bringing new clothes, vehicles, and features. The developer says the game will also introduce its own esports ecosystem that will feature tournaments and leagues. Battlegrounds Mobile India will be exclusive to India.
118 apps were banned in India last September along with PUBG Mobile. After the banishment, ownership of the game has changed and Krafton has been attempting to re-launch in India. Now, finally, its efforts have succeeded and Indian fans are one step closer to playing the popular game once again, though in a new avatar.
