Battlegrounds Mobile India: Old accounts will be retained, says TSM's Ghatak

Battlegrounds Mobile India: Old accounts will be retained, says TSM's Ghatak

Earlier this month, Krafton announced Battlegrounds Mobile India. a free-to-play battle royale title that will be available to play only in India. Since the announcement, fans have been wondering if they will be able to access their old accounts and all the items.

PUBG Mobile pro Abhijeet Andhare aka Ghatak uploaded a video on his YouTube channel saying "investments made in PUBG Mobile will be retained in the Battlegrounds Mobile India". In the video (at 1:03), he says "There is good news for those who have made investments in PUBG Mobile. Whatever investments you have made will be retained in the Battlegrounds Mobile India. So, chill and enjoy.”

Players can participate in international tournaments 

When the game was announced, Krafton said that it will have its own esports ecosystem with tournaments and leagues. Maybe Krafton will organize esports tournaments exclusively for Indian players, but nothing can be said for sure. As for international tournaments, Ghatak said in the same video (at 3:00), "Krafton will build a framework for talented Indian players to showcase their skills in international events. So chill, Krafton will take care of everything."

How is Battlegrounds Mobile India different than PUBG Mobile?

Battlegrounds Mobile India is different than PUBGM. For example, the game features green bloodstains instead of red, and according to the privacy policy, "gamers under the age of 18 will only be able to play the game for a maximum of three hours per day." Krafton has also restricted the maximum spending limit in the game down to Rs 7,000 per day. The game will have more exclusive in-game outfits and features.

Earlier today, Krafton announced the pre-registration date for Battlegrounds Mobile India. Pre-registration for Battlegrounds Mobile India will go live on May 18 on Google Play Store.
