Battlegrounds Mobile India Out Now for Android, First Esports Tournament to Be Announced Soon
You can finally download Battlegrounds Mobile India right now. Krafton has confirmed that its version of PUBG Mobile for India is available for download on Google Play for Android devices as of Friday. This was after an early access version of the game was released Thursday. Downloading it now nets you the following special items:
- 1x Supply crate coupon
- 2x EXP Card
- 2x BP Card
Previously IGN India was the first to report a June 18 release date. This as followed up by multiple insiders claiming the same.
While Krafton is yet to reveal its Battlegrounds Mobile India esports plans to the public, it has been talking to and courting players and teams since the game’s announcement a month ago. Expect details on the first Battlegrounds Mobile India tournament soon, sources tell us.
We won’t be surprised to see it being run by Krafton investee Nodwin though details are yet to be confirmed if it would be that company for sure.
And although Battlegrounds Mobile is finally out now, responses to a recently revealed RTI indicate that Battlegrounds Mobile India won’t be banned prior to launch. There have been several groups requesting for a ban on the game, it doesn’t seem like the Indian government is interested in playing ball. Following calls for a ban on Battlegrounds Mobile — Krafton’s India avatar of PUBG Mobile, YouTubers resorted to racist comments. At the time, Krafton refused to condemn this behaviour.
From our time with the game we felt it’s identical to PUBG Mobile in places that matter all while clunkily trying to adhere to local regulations and guidelines, resulting in a game similar to the Chinese version.
