PUBG Mobile to Launch as Battlegrounds Mobile India: Official Teaser, Restrictions and More

Krafton, the South Korean company behind PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, revealed Battlegrounds Mobile India as the game’s dedicated Indian version. The new battle royale game promises a premium, AAA multiplayer gaming experience as well as unique in-game events like costumes and features.

According to a press release from the company, Battlegrounds Mobile India will also launch its own esports ecosystem, which will include tournaments and leagues. In addition to announcing the information, Krafton also released a video teaser for the game, which bears some resemblance to PUBG Mobile, which was banned in India last year.

Official Video Teaser:

To recall, PUBG Mobile along with 117 other mobile games with ties to China, was banned by the Indian government. PUBG Corporation, a Kraton affiliate, purchased the publishing and distribution rights in the country from PUBG Mobile’s publisher Tencent Games shortly after the ban.


Indian Version:

Battlegrounds Mobile India will also have its own mobile e-sports ecosystem, with India-specific in-game content and tournaments in the future, according to Krafton. If you’re worried about privacy, the developer promises that all data collection and storage will be in complete compliance with all relevant laws and regulations in India and for players here.

Restrictions:

The developers have shared a few key details on how Battlegrounds Mobile India is targeting its largest potential user base – teenagers, or anyone under the age of 18. These include gaming time limits, regular spending limits, and parental consent requirements.

Under the Battlegrounds Mobile India privacy policy, gamers under the age of 18 will be limited to three hours a day of gameplay. In addition, Krafton has set a daily spending limit of Rs. 7,000 in the game. The two restrictions are likely intended to address the controversy that surrounded PUBG Mobile prior to its ban, particularly in regards to the levels of addiction it sparked among gamers in the country. Several reports emerged on a near-daily basis citing minors who were once barred from playing PUBG Mobile committing suicide, self-harming, or even injuring others around them.

Under the terms of service for Battlegrounds Mobile India, Krafton has stated that under-18 gamers must enter a contact number belonging to their parents and obtain their permission before playing the game. Parents worried that minors who have given the game permission to collect private data without proper supervision may write to Krafton directly to have their data deleted, according to the Korean publishing house.

The new Battlegrounds Mobile India spending limit was enacted in response to previous reports citing multiple instances of minors using extreme measures to gain access to financial instruments, allowing them to spend on in-game goods – a by-product of addiction to the previous version of the game.


Pre-Registration & Availbility:

Pre-registrations for Battlegrounds Mobile India will be available before the game’s official launch in India, according to Krafton. The new game is to be exclusive to India, and the tri-colour theme will be used in the logo to appeal to Indian smartphone gamers.

With this, Battlegrounds Mobile India appears to be on the verge of resuming its journey in the country.
