After months of being suspended in stasis without news or information of PUBG Mobile returning in any way, shape, or form, fans can finally play Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI). The game is available for pre-registered beta testers on the Google Play Store and the festivities amongst the Indian gaming community are well underway.
The game has undergone several changes in terms of some aesthetic choices, but the core gameplay remains largely unchanged from the days of PUBG Mobile back in the day. A major concern for the fanbase at large was whether they might be able to pick up where they left off with PUBG Mobile in Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI).
Much of those concerns were laid to rest as soon as players first logged in using their Facebook or Twitter account. The app enquired whether they would like to restore their account from PUBG Mobile – much to the delight of the sizeable player base of BGMI, formerly PUBG Mobile.
List of account details players can migrate to BGMI from PUBG Mobile
Krafton’s official website for BGMI includes a well-detailed support page for players looking to migrate their data to the new game. The list of data that will be transferred to the game is pretty extensive and players can have a look through this link here.
