PUBG Mobile is arguably the most famous battle royale game on the mobile platform. This game has amassed a massive player base and shows no signs of slowing down.
In India, however, the last few months haven't been the best for this game's fans and players, as a ban was imposed on it by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology.
Since then, they have been waiting for the return of their beloved title. And around a week back, fans finally received some good news. PUBG Corporation, in a press release, announced a special version of PUBG Mobile for Indian users, leaving players ecstatic and excited about the return of their favorite game.
Changes in the PUBG Mobile Indian version
PUBG Corporation also stated that in-game content would be enhanced to fulfill the needs and match the local player's preferences. As a result, PUBG Mobile India would be slightly different from the global version.
Here are some of the significant changes:
#1 Hit effect – The hit effect will be changed to green, indicating the game's virtual nature. The players can change this color in the global version, but it is expected to be green in the Indian version.
#2 Default character clothing – All the game's characters will most probably be fully clothed by default.
#3 Feature to restrict the game time for younger players – Restrictions would be set on the playtime to promote healthy gameplay habits and culture.
Exclusive esports league for the Indian region
The company also announced its plans to host an esports league exclusively for the Indian region. It will lead to further development of the game on the competitive front.
PUBG Mobile India also released several teasers of the trailer/advertisement for the upcoming iteration on its social media handles. These clips featured a few popular PUBG Mobile influencers – Dynamo, Kronten, and Jonathan. It is expected that the trailer would provide players with the exact release date of the game.
Also, gamers will likely be able to migrate data from the global version to the Indian version.Published 17 Nov 2020, 17:25 IST
