Krafton, earlier today, announced that Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) is officially released in the country. The PUBG Mobile alternative was available for download in May 2021. Since then, the game has crossed over 10 million downloads on the Google Play Store. Krafton is yet to release the BGMI iOS app for iPhone users. While we wait for that, the company has announced some key details around the data transfer from PUBG Mobile to BGMI. The developers had previously announced that Battlegrounds Mobile India players can transfer the data from PUBG Mobile till December 3. However, on the day of the official release, the developers have paused the data transfer.

Krafton, on the official website, announced that it is temporarily pausing the transfer service from July 6. Players from India can safely secure the PUBG Mobile data to BGMI. Those who have played the Livik Map in PUBG Mobile can transfer their account data to BGMI. Krafton has also stated that users who have transferred their data will receive pre-registration rewards.

The developers have not shared details on when they plan to resume the data transfer service. It is in your best interest to transfer your PUBG Mobile data to BGMI before July 6. Following the maintenance, BGMI players cannot transfer the PUBG Mobile data until further notice.

Android smartphone users can download BGMI from the Google Play Store. Those who had the early access version can simply download the 137MB update from the Play Store to get the official version. Users on iOS might have to wait for a few more days to play BGMI on iPhone. 

As part of the official release, the developers have announced various in-game events. The duration of receiving the “India ka Battlegrounds” gift along with 1 million and 5 million total download rewards is extended to August 19, 23:59:59 (UTC). In addition, players can also collect the Constable Set (permanent gift for 10 million downloads) after the official opening until August 19, 23:59:59 (UTC). Krafton will announce more such in-game events in the coming days.
