Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is an online multiplayer battle Royale game developed and published by PUBG Corporation, a subsidiary of South Korean video game company Bluehole. Pubg mobile and some other apps were banned by Indian Government on September 2, reason behind the ban was that these apps were engaging in activities that are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity, defense and security of the country. From that time news was coming on and off of the return of Pubg mobile in India but it is finally here.
In the latest development, PUBG Mobile has launched a new website for India. The site, as of now, only features social media posts by PUBG Mobile India and links to its social media handles and YouTube channel.
It is to be noted that the website hasn’t given any official date for the launch its just showing coming soon on the site. Pubg mobile also posted first teaser on their social media handles and featured famous pubg mobile personalities like Dynamo, Kronton etc.
PUBG Corporation says that PUBG Mobile India has been created specifically for the Indian market, with data privacy and the security of Indian gamers being top priority. Before the ban, around 25% of all of PUBG’s global gamer base came from India. As soon as the PUBG Mobile India announcement happened, gamers couldn’t keep calm anymore. Social media erupted in a joyous celebration with memes setting the tone for the trends and the hashtags on social media. To moderate privacy and data security concerns, PUBG said it will conduct regular inspection and verifications on the storage systems holding Indian users’ personally identifiable information to reinforce security and ensure that their data is safely managed. They do not want to happen anything to their game again after what they have been gone through. According to the resources many characteristics of the game will be customized according to Indian gamers
such as the game now being set in a virtual simulation training ground, new characters automatically starting clothed, and green hit effects to reflect the virtual nature of the game. More importantly, the company will include a feature that places restrictions on game time to promote healthy gameplay habits for younger players,” says the developer, in an official statement.
Users will likely be able to have their Skins and In-App purchases from Global Version on their Indian Version. In-Game now, it shows for a user that their character has migrated to the Indian version. The servers as we all know are based out of India and any games made by Krafton or its partners will be hosted on Microsoft’s Azure platform. However, IDs with a ban sentence of 10 years will not be migrated to the India version, known from the latest news.
