Earlier this month, Krafton announced that it will soon be launching Battlegrounds Mobile India. The new mobile game replaces PUBG Mobile in India, which was banned in the country in August 2020. Now, ahead of the Battlegrounds Mobile India launch, Krafton has announced that starting today (18 May), users in India will be able to pre-register for the mobile game on Google Play Store. “There will be specific rewards available for fans to claim, only if they pre-register the game. These rewards would be specific to Indian players only,” Krafton has announced.

Krafton, the company that owns the PUBG IP, has not said anything about the release date yet. However, seeing the pace at which the company is moving ahead towards making Battlegrounds Mobile return to India, we might soon see an announcement. Several YouTubers in India have suggested the launch could happen as early as June, and while they have not shared a date, fans have predicted Battlegrounds Mobile may arrive on June 10, coinciding with the solar eclipse.

Battlegrounds Mobile India pre registration link

Battlegrounds Mobile India pre-registration link is already live on the Google Play Store. To pre-register, head over to the Battlegrounds Mobile India application on the Google Play Store and click on the ‘pre-register’ button. That’s it. Users will be notified when the game is launched and is available to download and play. Krafton had said there will be 4 exclusive pre-registration rewards, including the Recon Mask, the Recon Outfit, Celebration Expert Title, and 300 AG.

System requirements for downloading Battlegrounds Mobile India

According to Krafton, you need to have a phone with at least 2GB of RAM and Android 5.1.1 or above. This means that most of the new phones will be supported but you will have to check for the RAM on your phone. Android Go smartphones are unlikely to support the game because of the 1GB of RAM in them. And finally, obviously, you need to have a stable internet connection to download and play Battlegrounds Mobile on your phone.

Can you play matches with anyone on Battlegrounds Mobile?

No. Since the servers for Battlegrounds Mobile are hosted in India, you will only be able to play with people playing the game in India. Cross-server matches are not allowed. “The app #BATTLEGROUNDSMOBILEINDIA is exclusively for players in India only, serviced by Krafton,” the app description reads.
