Battleground Mobile India Early Access went live on Thursday, with the game being made available in beta through Google Play. We figured out how to get our hands on it, and played a full match. Plainly Battlegrounds Mobile India is basically PUBG Mobile with minor changes, which we’ll get into in a bit. With the open beta being made available only in front of the recently expected June 18 delivery date, we are uncertain how long this beta phase will last or what the release date will be. Here are our first impressions of Battlegrounds Mobile India’s Early Access build.
In case you’re a PUBG Mobile fan, directly from when you open Battlegrounds Mobile India on your Android device, all that will be natural. Subsequent to signing in with your past PUBG Mobile credentials, or making an account, you are greeted with the same home screen and background music as PUBG Mobile. And the best part is, you get to transfer your in-game data over from PUBG Mobile. We’ll publish a how-to soon. Interestingly, there were prompts asking if the player is over 18 and if they are in India, and unfortunately at this platform, it appears you can simply respond to this with ‘yes’, without any verification needed.
We promptly hopped into Erangel with the Season 19’s Traverse – Insectoid theme and heard the protected gaming narration stating this is a simulation, it does not represent real life, and to not spend long hours playing. This appears to happen every time you start a match – which may get a bit annoying, but, may be a much-needed reminder during long sessions. Unsurprisingly, the match was filled with bots and we did not come across a single real player. It was like the initial days of PUBG Mobile all over again.
The Erangel map in Battlegrounds Mobile India is exactly the same as PUBG Mobile, you get natural weapons and hardware, utilizing similar customisable controls. A benefit of the game being restrictive to India is that it was a fast and smooth insight all through with no slack, outline drops, or ping issues. Despite the fact that the experience may change a piece when genuine players are on a similar worker.
Landmarks Mobile India brings back similar guides, same weapons, interactivity mechanics, and by and large allure as PUBG Mobile, aside from, it has been repackaged for Indian clients. It makes a couple of minor changes however. The blood in-game is presently green rather than red. On the upper left where it showed the quantity of players that are ‘Alive’ and the quantity of players you’ve ‘Murdered’, presently shows ‘Alive’ and ‘Completed.’ Another move for the sake of security? You can’t choose your worker in Battlegrounds Mobile India as the alternative has been incapacitated. It is muddled if this choice will be available later on.
As mentioned, Krafton opened beta testing for Battlegrounds Mobile India on Thursday for a limited number of users, and we were able to get access to the game.
