Here is the list of the four tournaments.

  1. Battlegrounds Mobile Open Challenge (BMOC)
  2. Battlegrounds Mobile Pro Series Season 1
  3. Battlegrounds Mobile India Series (BGIS)
  4. Battlegrounds Mobile Pro Series Season 2

According to the announcement video, the four tournaments will have a culminating prize pool of a massive ₹6 Crore. While the two seasons of BMPS are set to hold a prize pool of ₹2 Crore each, Krafton has promised fans across the country that the second edition of the Battlegrounds Mobile India Series (BGIS) will be bigger than last season.

While Skylightz Gaming won the inaugural edition of BGIS, GodLike Esports participated in the PMGC 2021 Grand Finals after fulfilling all criteria for being the only invited team from India.

Furthermore, the four tournaments announced by Krafton have been scheduled throughout the year so that BGMI players can balance between grinding on the battlegrounds and looking after their health.

It is to be seen how many new talents will make a name for themselves in the upcoming Esports tournaments and emerge as superstars who will represent the nation on the global stage.
