Battlegrounds Mobile India will be up for pre-registrations from May 18 on the Google Play Store in India. The much-awaited spiritual successor to PUBG Mobile India was announced earlier this month and Krafton Inc has been teasing the launch ever since. PUBG Mobile was banned in India in 2020 with the government of India citing privacy and security concerns. There is no word on the exact launch date of Battlegrounds Mobile India yet.
Battlegrounds Mobile India will go for pre-registrations first for Android as revealed previously. There is still no word when iOS users will be able to pre-register for the game. For Android users, the game will be available to pre-register on May 18 on the Google Play Store. Additionally, those who pre-register for the game will be eligible to receive exclusive rewards that they can claim when the game launches in India.
As it is an India-centric game, it will not be available globally and the rewards will also be specific to the Indian players. Recently, Battlegrounds Mobile India teased the Sanhok map for fans of the original PUBG Mobile and it is expected that it will be playable at launch.

The pre-registration for Battlegrounds Mobile India begins on May 18 in India. To pre-register for the game, users will have to visit the Google Play Store.

While announcing Battlegrounds Mobile India, Krafton revealed that the game will have exclusive in-game events like outfits and other such features.
