After months of anticipation, some exciting news for PUBG Mobile enthusiasts in India has finally come. On Thursday, Krafton, the South Korean developer of PUBG Mobile, announced the opening of ‘Battlegrounds Mobile India.’ Krafton’s statement comes only days after it was revealed that PUBG Mobile India would be renamed ‘Battlegrounds Mobile India.’ The release date for ‘Battlegrounds Mobile India’ has yet to be confirmed by Krafton.
“Offer a world-class AAA multiplayer gaming experience on mobile,” according to Battlegrounds Mobile India. According to Krafton, the online multiplayer battle royale game will be free to play on mobile devices and will be accessible exclusively in India. For the forthcoming game, the South Korean company has already created a website called battlegroundsmobileindia.com. Battlegrounds Mobile India pre-registration will commence shortly, according to the company.
A trailer for Battlegrounds Mobile India has also been published by Krafton. The game seems to be quite similar to PUBG Mobile India in the teaser. Battlegrounds Mobile India now seems to be a reskinned version of PUBG Mobile India. The Indian tricolor is splattered over the game’s logo. The game will have material and features that are exclusive to India, according to Krafton.
Battlegrounds Mobile India will feature exclusive in-game events such as outfits and features, according to Krafton. Battlegrounds Mobile India will also host esports tournaments and league matches from time to time, according to the company. Following the launch of Battlegrounds Mobile India, Krafton plans to host a series of India-specific in-game events.
Krafton said that it is working with partners to guarantee data security and safety for Battlegrounds Mobile India gamers. “All data collecting and storage will be in complete accordance with all relevant rules and regulations in India and for gamers here,” Krafton said in a statement.
Since the government banned PUBG Mobile in September 2020 due to security concerns, Krafton has been attempting to relaunch it in India. The company launched a $100 million investment in India’s online gaming and esports sector earlier this year.
