Battlegrounds Mobile India was launched earlier this month in India. The PUBG Mobile alternative is available for download on the Google Play Store for Android smartphone users.

Meanwhile, it looks like BGMI will host eSports Tournaments very soon. The official website has a dedicated microsite for eSports tournaments. For the uninitiated, such tournaments let players showcase their gaming skills while giving them a chance to earn cash rewards. Let’s take a look at more details on the Battlegrounds Mobile India eSports tournaments.

Battlegrounds Mobile India to host eSports tournaments

Battlegrounds Mobile India was launched earlier this month. Days after the release, the developers have confirmed hosting eSports tournaments. Krafton’s official BGMI website has a dedicated tab for eSports tournaments. The microsite does not share any details of the first tournament at the moment but states that it is coming soon. 

eSports tournaments allow players to showcase their gaming skills at a global level. Krafton typically hosts such tournaments across regions, wherein international players compete against each other to win the title. Players also get cash rewards and other prizes for participating and winning the tournament. In the case of BGMI, Krafton is likely to host a tournament at a national level because BGMI is currently available only for Indian players. PUBG Mobile, on the other hand, is officially banned in India. We can expect more details about the BGMI tournaments in the coming days.

Meanwhile, players can download BGMI from the Google Play Store. They can also transfer their PUBG Mobile data to BGMI before July 9. Krafton will temporarily suspend the data transfer service until further notice. Players can also claim several in-game rewards after downloading the game. Krafton has already rolled out the “India ka Battlegrounds” gift along with 1 million and 5 million total download rewards. Players can also collect the Constable Set, which is a permanent gift for 10 million downloads. iOS users need to wait for a few days to play the game. Krafton is yet to make an official announcement on the BGMI iOS app release date.
