In India, the developer of PUBG Mobile has confirmed rumours about the release of pubg alternative. A game called Battlegrounds Mobile India is in the works for the region, as stated in recent days, though Krafton did not disclose a launch date. The name Battlegrounds Mobile India appeared on posters that the company shared on social media earlier this week. It also renamed its Indian Facebook and Instagram accounts to @BattlegroundsMobileIn, implying that the new game would be called Battlegrounds. The game is, of course, a reworked version of PUBG Mobile tailored to the Indian market.
It was revealed today that the game will be available on mobile and will have a world-class online gaming experience. The game will be released with exclusive in-game events like outfits and features and will have its own tournaments and leagues sports ecosystem. The game will start on mobile devices as a free play experience.
At the start of a series of specific input-only India events at the launch that will be announced later, KRAFTON will collaborate with partners in building an esport ecosystem.
In addition, Krafton said Battlegrounds Mobile India will have a royal experience and a “pre-registration period” in India before it is launched. Only Indian users will be able to play the game.
“Krafton will collaborate with partners to create an esports ecosystem while regularly delivering in-game content, beginning with a series of India-specific in-game events at launch, to be announced later. With privacy and data security being a top priority, KRAFTON will be working with partners, to ensure data protection and security, at each stage. This will ensure privacy rights are respected, and all data collection and storage will be in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations in India and for players here,” the company said in a press release.
Why is Krafton company involved in this?
In India, in October last year, PUBG Mobile was banned, including more than 200 Chinese apps banned by the government in China following the Galwán Valley clash. Krafton, on the other hand, has removed from its PUBG Mobile licence Chinese Tencent Games in India, although the Chinese giant continues to be an investor in Krafton.
The South Korean firm has also said that it will spend $100 million on establishing specific operations in India and recruit employees across the country. In efforts designed to appease government, the company has put out several job posts for the same company and donated Rs. 1.5 crore to the PM Cares fund for helping COVIDs in the country.
