PUBG Mobile developers, Krafton have been working on bringing the game back in India following its ban last year. The government has refused to list the ban on the popular mobile game. Krafton, late last year, announced that it will launch an India-specific game that will adhere to the local laws and regulations. This game, now known as Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), is expected to launch soon in India. Krafton opened the pre-registration of BGMI on May 18 prior to its release. Following the pre-registration cycle kicking off, the latest announcement suggests that BGMI has received an overwhelming response from players in India. Let’s take a look at more details on the Battlegrounds Mobile India release date and pre-registration details.
Battlegrounds Mobile India crosses 20 million pre-registrations
Krafton has announced that Battlegrounds Mobile India has received over 20 million pre-registrations within two weeks. The game’s pre-registration opened on May 18 in India. Krafton announced that it received 7.6 million pre-registrations on its opening day, crossing 20 million pre-registrations in two weeks. The pre-registration for the game went live on Google Play Store on May 18.
At the time of the pre-registration announcement, the company announced that BGMI is an India-specific game. Players who pre-register for the game are eligible to get special rewards. Krafton has revealed the list of special rewards that it would give to the pre-registered players. These include a Recon Mask, the Recon Outfit, Celebration Expert Title and 300 AG. Pre-registered players will get the rewards automatically once the game released in India. These rewards are currently exclusive to Indian players.
When will the game release in India?
Krafton did not reveal the official release date of BGMI and said it will be announced at a later date. It was previously rumoured that the game will release in India on June 18. Popular eSports gamer Maxtern posted a cryptic tweet that revealed the June 18 release date. Another content creator Abhijeet Andhare had claimed that Krafton is likely to launch the game in the third week of June.
