Battlegrounds Mobile India Early Access went live on Google Play Store today
The game looks and feel like PUBG Mobile rebranded for India with minor tweaks
Almost a month after pre-registrations were opened, Battlegrounds Mobile India has been launched, after a fashion. The early access version of the game went live on Google Play on June 17, Thursday. For starters, PUBG Mobile players will find a great deal of similarities between the old battle royale game and its new India-specific avatar.
Battlegrounds Mobile India Early Access is a beta version of the mobile game and has been made available only for already registered beta testers in the country. It means those who missed the window to get a beta tester slot will have to wait to get their hands on the title. Empty spots on Battlegrounds Mobile India's beta testing programme might be scarce, given the anticipation around the game. We were able to find an empty slot after two tries, so one can hope.
Moreover, beta launch of Battlegrounds Mobile India a day before the game was rumoured to go live leaves the launch date for its open access version once again shrouded in mystery. Krafton India, the game's developer, has been constantly teasing bits of Battlegrounds Mobile India but without declaring an official launch date. Considering the fact that only the beta version has been released yet means they could be testing the waters or ironing out some kinks in the game, which could take some time.
