Krafton has finally announced that Battlegrounds Mobile India, earlier referred to as PUBG Mobile India, will be releasing soon in India. For those who don’t know, PUBG Mobile was banned in 2020, under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act as Tencent was engaged in activities that are prejudicial to the sovereignty and integrity of India, the defence of India, the security of the state, and public order.
The game will be making a comeback after a long wait and will offer a world-class AAA multiplayer gaming experience on both Android and iOS devices. Here is everything we know yet regarding Battlegrounds Mobile India launch, including the release date and how to pre-register.
