After Battlegrounds Mobile India went up for pre-registration earlier this month, the game’s launch doesn’t seem to very faraway. However, players who have a connect with the original PUBG Mobile still wonder how much of the game will they see in the Indian rendition— Battlegrounds Mobile India?
A new teaser released by BGMI shows first hints of the desi version of the game. The teaser shows a polaroid photo sitting on a desk amidst cups of tea, energy drinks (a popular PUBG Mobile health-reviving tool) and the PUBG Mobile Pan.
The photo shows a map that looks the original Erangel map from PUBG. However, the text on the Polaroid has ‘Erangle’ written instead of the original spelling. Given the different spelling has popped up in an official teaser image, it looks more than a typo.
The new name suggests the same map from PUBG mobile will continue with a different name. The original game, PUBG Mobile is banned India since September 2020. Krafton is trying to ensure that no part of Battlegrounds Mobile India takes any cues from PUBG.
The very first parachuting teaser showed Miramar desert map while a later teaser hinted at a Sanhok-like map.
Ninong Ering, MLA from Arunachal Pradesh wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleging the connections of Krafton with China. In his letter, he requested the PM to ban Battlegrounds Mobile India. He wrote “big threat to security of India & privacy of our citizens and a way to circumvent & disregard our laws.”
Ninong Ering tweeted about “Chinese deception”. He said BGMI is trying to divert the mind of Indians. He also attached a three-page letter addressing several issues linked with BGMI, Krafton and Tencent.
Added in the letter was that they are trying to sidestep Indian laws and deceive Indian citizens and government. He added it is a”mere illusion and a trick to launch same game with minor modifications. To collect user data of millions of our citizens and transfer it to foreign companies and Chinese government.”
