Battlegrounds Mobile India, the upcoming game from PUBG Mobile developer Krafton, has posted a new teaser for the Sanhok map via a poster on the company’s official Facebook page. Krafton had recently announced the company’s plan to launch a new battle royale game in India; Battlegrounds Mobile India. The title will be an India-only game, and it is basically a redesigned PUBG Mobile for India. The game features an India-centric logo complete with tricolour hues.
The official launch date of Battlegrounds Mobile India has not yet been revealed by the company but it is expected to launch soon, according to the developers of the game.
The game is expected to be quite similar to the original PUBG Mobile albeit with a few India specific changes. There have been rumours about the blood being green, instead of red. But we will have to wait a little longer to know the exact changes in the Indian version of the game. Krafton has also announced its plan to build an esports ecosystem while updating in-game content regularly.
Battlegrounds Mobile India shared a poster of what seems to be the Ban Tai map location from Sanhok – one of the 4×4 maps available in-game. The map Sanhok was added to PUBG Mobile in September 2018 and is now set to be a part of Battlegrounds Mobile India.
The map is relatively small when compared to the original Erangel and Miramar maps, but bigger than some other recent maps like Livik. Battlegrounds Mobile India will be up for pre-registration before it launches for the masses.
New restrictions for kids and teenagers
The policy also mentions that parents or guardians who feel that their child has provided personal information without their consent can contact the developers and request for the information to be deleted from the database. Furthermore, players below the age of 18 will only be able to access the title for a maximum of three hours every day. These players will also not be able to spend over Rs 7,000 per day for in-app purchases. However, it is not clear how the game will verify the age of each player.
The global variant of PUBG Mobile was banned in India last year along with various other Chinese apps over issues of data privacy.
