Since PUBG Mobile got banned in India back in September 2020, many players were waiting for its return in the country. Krafton has recently announced that Battlegrounds Mobile India will be PUBG Mobile for the country — though it really doesn’t want you to say that.
Battlegrounds Mobile India Pre-Registration Date
Krafton revealed that Battlegrounds Mobile India will be available for pre-registration from May 18, 2021. This will be for Android and iOS.
Battlegrounds Mobile India Release Date
However, the company hasn’t shared when pre-registration will begin or the release date of Battlegrounds Mobile India. The discourse in the community surrounding the Battlegrounds Mobile India release date suggests a June 10 date — due to Krafton sharing a teaser for the game that hints at a potential reveal during the solar eclipse 2021 date of June 10 . That said, sources in the industry speaking to IGN India tell us that the Battlegrounds Mobile India release date is June 18.
As none of this information is confirmed by Krafton yet, it should be taken with a grain of salt.
Battlegrounds Mobile India Map and Gameplay
Battlegrounds Mobile India’s recent teaser shows a map that is similar to Sanhok. The gameplay is expected to be similar to PUBG Mobile, with some tweaks to cater to the Indian player base. Battlegrounds Mobile India could also be similar to the Chinese version of PUBG Mobile, Peacekeeper Elite. The game could feature green blood and fully-dressed characters.

It also states that those players under 18 would need to provider parent or guardian contact details. However it does not explain how the game will differentiate between those above and below 18 years of age.
Krafton is expected to share more details about the release date, pre-registration, and gameplay of Battlegrounds Mobile India soon.
