Battlegrounds Mobile India does not have a release date yet but is expected to arrive in the country on June 18.
The launch date of Battlegrounds Mobile India, the Indian version of PUBG Mobile, is not yet confirmed. But in the meantime, the company has issued an update on its support page, in which information has been given about some essential conditions for playing the game Battlegrounds Mobile India. If you want to play the Battlegrounds Mobile India game, then you should know these terms better, otherwise, you will not be able to play PUBG style Indian version game. If the conditions are not met, your request will be blocked for 24 hours.
OTP will be the only way to login to the Battlegrounds Mobile India
OTP has to be entered to login to Battlegrounds Mobile India game. This OTP based system will be the only way to login to the Battlegrounds Mobile India game. Before this, players are given the facility to log-in through Facebook, Google Play or Guest account to play PUBG Mobile. But the conditions for playing the new Indian version of PUBG have been tightened. This is because last year the Indian government blocked on charges of data theft and damage to the unity and integrity of India.
The Battlegrounds-Mobile India website mentions that a user can enter a ‘Verify code’ three times after which it won’t work. A Verify code will be valid for five minutes before it expires, and players can request for a code 10 times before they are restricted from doing so for 24 hours. A single phone number can register up to 10 accounts.
PUBG Mobile was banned in the country back in September last year. While Battlegrounds Mobile India essentially offers the same battle royale experience, it will come with some tweaks for the Indian audience. PUBG Mobile allowed players to log in using their social media accounts including Facebook and Twitter, as well as Google Play and even a guest login. Notably, the guest log in option was reportedly removed in August of 2019.
This raises some concerns over data migration from PUBG Mobile to Battlegrounds Mobile India. While Krafton has not officially confirmed whether PUBG Mobile players in India will be able to migrate their data over to Battlegrounds Mobile India, PUBG Mobile influencer GodNixon put out a video on his YouTube channel stating that this will most likely be the case.
But, now that the login methodology is seemingly different, it is unclear if data migration will still hold true. It should also be noted that though Krafton only explains the OTP authentication method on its Battlegrounds Mobile India support page, it may not be the only way to log in as Facebook and other options may return as well.
