PUBG Mobile India, or the newly named BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA, is making a comeback in India after almost getting banned for a year. It had to make a lot of changes to its terms and conditions, privacy policies and a lot more to finally make a comeback in one of its biggest markets.
Recently, in partnership with KRAFTON has finally revealed the pre-registration date of the game in India. The pre-registration will start from 18th May, and also there will rewards if you pre-register for the game.
For that, you have to visit the Google Play Store and click on the “Pre-Register” button, and your rewards will automatically be available to claim on game launch.
Apart from rewards, the pre-registration date itself has sparked a new interest among gamers and the industry as a whole. So, here’s how the eminent people from the gaming industry have reacted:
1. Mr Lokesh Suji, Director, Esports Federation of India & Vice President of the Asian Esports Federation (AESF):
“It is heartening to see that Krafton Inc. has announced the date for pre-registrations of Battlegrounds Mobile India, which is a clear indication that government green light has been given and this surely is a piece of good news for all the PUBG players who have been missing the game all this while since the game was withdrawn from the Indian market post the government ban.
We also urge that it is an opportune time for Indian video game developers, as well as the existing esports titles as such recent announcements, will fuel the Indian esports ecosystem which is full of possibilities and opportunities.”
2. Mr Tarun Gupta, Founder, Ultimate Battle, India’s first-ever one-stop online esports platform:
