Battlegrounds Mobile India Released Officially for Android Devices
The wait is finally over for the players in India, as Battlegrounds Mobile India has officially launched for the country. The game is specifically designed for the Indian audience after the battle royale lovers faced the ban of PUBG Mobile back in September 2020. Since then, Krafton has been actively working to regain its most prominent market for PUBG Mobile with over 1 million concurrent players.
The game was launched for open beta testing on June 17, 2021, for Android users, but iOS users were pretty unhappy since the game wasn’t available for them. Yet again, the game has officially launched for Android devices, but there is still no information regarding its release for iOS devices.
Battlegrounds Mobile India is exclusive for players residing in India, and Krafton will also be organizing tournaments specifically for the Indian esports system. To celebrate the game’s launch, pre-registered players are given free in-game rewards that they can claim in the game. These rewards include:
- Recon Mask
- Recon Outfit
- Celebration Expert (Limited Title)
- 300 AG
Apart from these gifts, players can also participate in various in-game events like Friends For Life, Journey to the TOP, etc., and can claim their rewards to celebrate 1M, 5M, and 10M downloads exclusive gifts, including Constable Set and many more until August 19.
This is what the CEO of Krafton, CH Kim said regarding the official launch of BGMI in India:
“We at Krafton are delighted to introduce Battlegrounds Mobile India for our fans in India today. Designed exclusively for our Indian fans & gamers, Battlegrounds Mobile India will provide a superlative gaming experience. This is just the beginning of a series of new content, collaborations, and esports tournaments coming your way, and we will strive to ensure that our fans and community in India can fully enjoy the battlegrounds experiences.”
The players who have played the open beta version can update the game from Google Play Store to move on to the official version. The patch is being slowly rolled out for all the players, so if the option to update Battlegrounds Mobile India doesn’t appear, wait for about an hour.
