Battlegrounds Mobile India is now available for preload on the Google Play Store in India


New Delhi, May 27th

Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) video game is now available for preload on the Google Play Store and users will be able to play the game starting May 29, the company announced on Saturday.

South Korean company Krafton, the developer of the battle royale mobile game, announced that the game will be available to download and play for iOS users in the country starting May 29.

The company said in anticipation of an overwhelming response, it will phase out the availability and playability of BGMI, which was banned in the country by the government nearly a year ago.

“We are pleased to announce that BGMI is now available for preload. We always strive to provide our users with a smooth gaming experience and look forward to welcoming everyone back,” said Sean Hyunil Sohn, CEO of Krafton Inc India.

The government has categorically stated that the final decision to allow the BGMI video game to return to the country will only be made after three months of rigorous scrutiny of the game.

“We thank the authorities and our users once again for their continued support and look forward to improving the gaming experience for our community in India,” said Sohn.

The game update will introduce a new map, in-game events, and more.

The Indian government initially banned Krafton’s main offering PUBG in the country. Krafton later announced the release of the BGMI game in May 2021.

The Indian government then ordered Google and Apple to ban the BGMI gaming app from their respective online stores under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act 2000.
