Battlegrounds Mobile India, the Indian version of PUBG Mobile will be available for pre-registration from today, May 18. The announcement was made by the game developer Krafton, the South Korea-based game company.

To entice PUBG fans and players, Krafton has announced special rewards for those who pre-register for the game. The company has noted that these rewards will be specific to Indian users only.

While it did not specify what these rewards are, Krafton said that the game will be free to play on mobile devices – both iOS and Android.
Battlegrounds Mobile India is expected to offer the same game modes as PUBG Mobile, including battle royale, team deathmatch, war and more.

Maps, gameplay and new features

Krafton has partnered with first-person shooter Metro Exodus to bring a new game mode called Metro Royale in addition to other game modes.

It will also introduce a new underground world with themed content. Other additions include spike traps, melee throwing and more.

The game will also be lightweight in comparison to previous versions of PUBG Mobile, which were close to 1GB in terms of download size. Instead, Battlegrounds Mobile India will be just around 610MB in size.

Battlegrounds Mobile India will have restrictions for minors

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 parents 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.
The game will also send notices if you play for more than 2 hours a 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.
