Soon after the Government of India banned PUBG Mobile in the country last year, Krafton Inc., the company behind the game, cut ties with Tencent and started teasing a return to the Indian gaming scene. Over the past six months, we have seen numerous teasers, rumors, and reports about a PUBG Mobile India relaunch. And now it’s finally happening, albeit under a new name — Battlegrounds Mobile India. So here are all the details, pre-registration links, features, device compatibility, and more that you need to know about Battlegrounds Mobile India (PUBG Mobile India).
Battlegrounds Mobile India: Everything You Need to Know
We already know that PUBG Mobile will relaunch in the country with the new Battlegrounds Mobile India moniker. And Krafton is surprisingly strict about not calling it PUBG Mobile India (possibly, to avoid another ban??). Obviously, as of this writing, we do not have a lot of details about the game, but based on social media posts, the famous foliage-laden Sanhok map will likely be available in the game. Besides, hopefully, most things with Battlegrounds Mobile India will remain similar to the global version of PUBG Mobile.
Battlegrounds Mobile India: Supported Devices
The original PUBG Mobile title was compatible with a host of smartphones, and the company even launched PUBG Mobile Lite for budget smartphones. However, we only have confirmation of Battlegrounds Mobile India’s launch on Android smartphones right now. There is no word on its compatibility with low-end or budget phones.
As far as iPhone users are concerned, you will have to wait a while before Battlegrounds Mobile India becomes available on the iOS App Store. We are almost certain that there will be no pre-registration for iPhone users, but hopefully, the game will be made available on the App Store either at launch or soon after.
