The early access of Battlegrounds Mobile India (BMI), which is deemed by many as desi version of PUBG Mobile India, has attracted millions of PUBG Mobile Indian lovers in India, It is to be noted that Battlegrounds Mobile India is still in the testing phase but it has already registered over 5 million downloads in less than 48 hours.
Battlegrounds Mobile India developer Krafton has introduced several changes in gameplay as well as back end operations of the much-hyped title in order to escape any tough action by the Indian government.
Changes in gameplay
Before the Indian government decided to ban PUBG Mobile India in September 2020, several parents used to complain that PUBG Mobile India was affecting their children because it portrayed a lot of violence. While the new game has retained of PUBG Mobile India, Battlegrounds Mobile India has made significant changes to terminology and visuals as well, including the colour when a player is hit.
It may be recalled in PUBG Mobile India, the default colour was red which looked like blood splatter. But in Battlegrounds Mobile India, Krafton has used green colour in place of red and it also shows feathers instead of splatter-like animation. The new version also has changed the term “kills” to “finishes” in order to tell the number of players defeated by a player.
Gameplay management system
PUBG Mobile India limited hours spent by a player while playing the hugely popular game, but Battlegrounds Mobile India will provide more frequent reminders to the gamer to limit screen time.
Battlegrounds Mobile India server
The default server set for majority of Battlegrounds Mobile India will continue to be India but the players will need to choose different servers from the settings page.
Battlegrounds Mobile India – Overall gaming experience
Battleground Mobile India’s gaming experience broadly remains similar to PUBG Mobile India. But the catch is that Indian players will not be able to partake in global e-sports events of PUBG Mobile. The gamers will also need to confirm their geographical location while setting up an account. It is expected that Krafton may introduce new changes to Battlegrounds Mobile India before the final release.
