The gaming giants, Krafton on
Wednesday announced that they will
be launching “Battlegrounds Mobile
India” soon. Earlier there were reports that PUBG Mobile India will be launched
with a new name. But like its happening for a long time now, Krafton still
hasn’t provided a specific launch date
for the upcoming and most awaited mobile game.
Battlegrounds Mobile India is considered
to offer world class battle royal
multiplayer gaming experience on mobile.
The game will be free of cost to play
and it will be available only in the Indian regions. The game will boast
exclusive in-game features like outfits
and Skins. Users can either purchase them through game currency called UCs or
by accomplishing missions.
The biggest aspect of Battlegrounds Mobile
India is that it will have its own
esports ecosystem with regular tournaments and leagues in collaboration with
its partners. Krafton is also planning to host a variety of India specific
in-game events and features at the game's launch.
The game will be a revival for the e-sports
scenario in India. The huge prize pools and the handsome salaries of Esports
players will attract the youth to choose gaming as a career. Prominent competitive players like Tanmay Singh a.k.a.
'Scout' and Jonathan from TSM-entity will be looking to make a comeback as
Indian esport stars.
Talking about the launch date of the game,
Krafton still hasn't announced a confirmed date for the same. Although they
have confirmed a period of pre-registration before the launch of the game. It
looks like Krafton is pretty confident about launching Battlegrounds Mobile
India this time around after announcing back in November the launch of PUBG
Mobile India but failed to do so. Looking at the teaser image, the game looks
exactly like PUBG Mobile with a significant change in the logo. The logo also
is designed with the tricolour of the Indian flag inscribed on it.
Previously when Krafton announced PUBG
Mobile India, it said the game would have significantly India centric features.
A similar approach is expected to be followed for Battlegrounds Mobile India.
Krafton also stated that they will be working with their partners to ensure
complete data protection and security.
This will be done to ensure privacy rights and all data collection and
storage will be in full compliance with the applicable laws and regulations in
India and for the players here, Krafton
said in a statement.
