Some users have already received an automatic update from midnight which is a part of the preload process. 

Commenting on the announcement, Sean Hyunil Sohn, CEO, KRAFTON, Inc. India, said "We are thrilled to announce that BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA is now available for preload. We are consistently striving to deliver a smooth gameplay experience to our users and are excited to welcome everyone back." 

"We once again, thank the authorities and our users for their continued support as we look forward to elevating the gaming experience for our community in India. See you on the battlegrounds!," he added, 

The company says that it will stagger the availability and playability of BGMI to ensure players enjoy the game seamlessly without any interruptions. “Players can, therefore, jump into the action-packed battles and prove their skills on the battlegrounds from 29th May onwards," Krafton says. 

Ban on BGMI was lifted earlier this month by the Indian government after the company committed to comply with the country’s laws. Coming after a ban of almost one year, the new update of BGMI will introduce a new map, in-game events and more. 

On the sidelines of the availability of the game, KRAFTON has also launched a new marketing campaign ‘India Ki Heartbeat’ that showcases the stories of gamers who embody the essence of BGMI as more than just a game, but a profound emotion.
