The much-anticipated India-specific version of PUBG, Battlegrounds Mobile India (BMI), is yet to get a release date, but developer Krafton has been posting teasers revealing some aspects of the game for a while now.
The latest 15-second long video teaser shared on the game’s official Facebook and Twitter page shows an in-game item that players can find. It shows a level 3 backpack that is an essential part of the battle royale experience as it allows players to carry various items.
A level 3 backpack is the largest capacity backpack players can find in the game. Also, the backpack looks identical to the one in PUBG Mobile.
Ahead of the launch, the publisher has released a couple of guidelines and rules, which would especially apply for gamers under the age of 18 years.
Meanwhile, Battlegrounds Mobile India is currently up for pre-registration on Google Play Store. The game went up for pre-registration in India on May 18 for Android devices. While the release date for the game is still a mystery, some gamers have tweeted saying that it will be available in the third week of June itself. Krafton is also offering some rewards to those who pre-register for the game.
According to another teaser, Battlegrounds Mobile India will get the popular PUBG Erangel map. But it will be called “Erangle” on the Indian version of PUBG Mobile to avoid comparisons.
Battlegrounds Mobile India is essentially PUBG Mobile for Indian audiences, though the company doesn’t want the link being highlighted for obvious reasons, given that PUBG Mobile was banned in India back in September last year. The new game will be a tweaked version of the banned game that caters exclusively to the Indian audience.
