Battlegrounds Mobile India, the India-exclusive version of popular battle royale game PUBG Mobile, has been announced finally. After teasing the game for months, the developers Krafton Inc., have officially launched the game today.

Battlegrounds Mobile India is expected to offer the same game modes such as PUBG Mobile, including battle royale, team deathmatch, war and more. The game may also have the same Erangel, Miramar, Sanhok and Vikendi maps.

The game will be available for pre-registration soon, and it can be played only in India. Krafton also announced that the game will release with exclusive in-game events like outfits and features and will have its own esports ecosystem with tournaments and leagues.



Battlegrounds Mobile India comes with specific restrictions for minors

Battlegrounds Mobile India will be available for minors as well, despite the several incidents and complaints of children overspending on the game, allegedly ignoring studies and other cases.

With that said, Krafton has announced some specific restrictions for minors – those below 18 years of age. Here’s what we found:

  1. Minors will have to provide the phone number of their parent or guardian to play the game.
  2. Minors will only be able to play the game for a maximum of 3 hours a day.
  3. The maximum amount that can be spent in the game will be limited to ₹7,000 per day.
However, it is unclear as to how the company will verify the age of its users. If the process is simply based on the details entered during registration without any authentication, it may defeat the purpose of the restrictions.

We should know more in this regard once the game launches officially.

The PUBG Mobile India ban timeline



PUBG Mobile was banned in September last year since Tencent, a Chinese company, held the licence for the game. The ban was a result of heightened tensions between India and China.

The Indian government banned PUBG Mobile along with over a hundred other Chinese apps and games with concern over 'sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order,’ by the Indian government.

Since then, PUBG’s developers Krafton Inc., have revoked Tencent’s licence.
