PUBG Mobile is back in a new avatar, Battlegrounds Mobile India, in the country due to its months-long ban. However, Krafton claims that they designed the Battlegrounds Mobile India to address concerns about its original version. It’s not new – it’s just what Chinese audiences have had all along.

Battlegrounds Mobile India has emerged as a slightly modified version of PUBG Mobile, with only a handful of (unnecessary) differences. And there are no India-specific changes here, with those tricolor posters relegated to marketing advancements.
Battlegrounds Mobile India is currently available for early access for Android users. Game publisher Krafton claimed just hours after the launch of the Battle Royale title that it surpassed the 5 million download mark.
Weeks before the formal launch of Battlegrounds Mobile India, Arunachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly Member Ninong Ering urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ban the game. However, the government did not respond publicly to Ering.
