After being banned almost 10 months ago, PUBG Mobile returned to India under a new name, Mobile India battlefields. The game was released in early access.
The two games are almost identical with a few differences. While the global version is released by Tencent, Mobile India battlefields is published by Krafton. He has no red blood and refers to the battlefield as a “virtual playground”. Instead of killing in the game, all eliminations are called “finishes” or “losses”. Players will also be asked to confirm if they are over 18 when opening the game. However, this can easily be changed through settings.
Players will also be able to transfer their data from the original version of PUBG Mobile. This includes all skins, progression, and other items.
APK file size is 71.93MB while OBB file is 636.46MB. Additional data including maps, skins and textures will be downloaded when opening the game. Players can select the features they want to download.
How to download Mobile India battlefields on Android?
- Download and extract APK and OBB files.
- Once done, locate them on your device.
- Click on the APK file to begin the installation process. However, you may need to enable installation of apps from unknown sources in settings.
- The OBB file, on the other hand, should be copied to the following location: Android> OBB> com.pubg.imobile. If this folder does not exist, create it with the same name.
- Open Mobile India battlefields, log in and enjoy.
PUBG Mobile has been banned in India due to data privacy concerns. By announcing Mobile India battlefields, Krafton said privacy and data security are a “top priority” for him. The South Korean company added that it would work with “partners” to comply with local laws.
Update June 17 7:15 am CT: BGMI early access is now full. While you can download the game’s install via the APK file, it may not work until Krafton allows more players to preview.
