Battlefield Mobile India Pre-Registration: Crofton Battlefield Mobile India pre-registration date announced on May 18
Today, South Korean video game developer Krafton announced a pre-registration date for its long-awaited game: Battlegrounds Mobile India, commonly seen as a replacement for Pub G Mobile. The original game was banned last September along with several other Chinese apps in India.
Pre-registration for the game will go live on the Google Play Store on May 18. There is no word on when the game will be released, but it will be after the pre-registration link goes live. It’s not clear when the game will be released on iOS.
In a press release, the company said “there will be specific rewards available for fans to claim, only if they pre-register the game.” These rewards are only specific to Indian players.
To pre-register, users need to go to the Google Play Store and click on the “Pre-Register” button. Rewards are automatically available at the beginning of the game. All users are free to play the game with in-app purchases as previously seen on PUBG Mobile.
PUBG Battlefields Mobile India: Age restrictions, spending limits, and so on
In addition, those under 18 years of age can only access a maximum of three hours every day. The developer is also restricting their spending limits. There have been reports that teens spend millions of rupees on the game for in-app purchases in the past. Now, in-app purchases are limited to Rs 7,000 per day for players under 18.
Krafton is trying to address the privacy issues that ultimately led to the ban on gaming in India. The company states that all personal information is stored and processed on servers in India and Singapore, although it may transfer data to other countries to meet legal requirements.
Battlefields Mobile India: Sanhok Map
Crofton posted a new teaser for the Sanhok map on the official Facebook page, saying much is unknown about the upcoming game and whether it really differs from PUBG Mobile. The poster shows the location of the Ban Tai Map from Sanhok, one of the 4 4 4 maps available in the game. The map was added to PUBG Mobile in September 2018. Based on the images shared so far, the game looks similar in design and spirit to the original PUBG Mobile.
