BGMI will be playable in India from May 29, available for preload in Google Play Store from today


Ever since Battlegrounds Mobile India announced its relaunch in India, fans have been eagerly waiting to play the game. Although it was available to download through various channels, its servers were offline.

Now, BGMI is back with another good news for its fans. It has announced via Twitter that the game will be available to preload from May 27 and will be playable from May 29.

Battlegrounds Mobile India said, “Hello BGMI fans! Your all-time favorite game is available to preload from today, 27th May. Please note, the game will be playable from 29th May.

Interested gamers can download the game for the Google Play Store or they can visit the BGMI website and select the AOS download option in the top right corner, from where they will be redirected to the game on the Play Store.

The Government of India has given a provisional approval of three months to Battlegrounds Mobile India. During these three months, the game will be monitored by the government and officials will investigate whether it violates any rules.

IT Minister Chandrashekhar said, “This is 3 months trial acceptance of #BGMI after compliance with issues of server locations & data security etc. We will be keeping a close watch on other issues of user loss, addiction etc in next 3 months.” A final decision is taken.

new restrictions coming into play

Players under the age of 18 must register their parent or guardian before playing the game. Also, these users will be able to login to the game using OTP only. Krafton is also limiting the playing time of BGMI players from 18 to three hours a day.

In addition, a daily spending limit of Rs 7,000 will be implemented to prevent players from spending too much on the game. Crafton says these new limits will help prevent game addiction.

History of Battlegrounds Mobile India in India

BGMI was previously available in India as PUBG. The Indian government banned PUBG in September 2020, when it blocked several apps linked to Chinese companies, including PUBG Mobile, which was run by Tencent Games in India. Then South Korean company Krafton, which owns PUBG Studios, renamed the game and launched it as Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI).

The game was again suspended in India in July 2022 after the Ministry of Home Affairs asked the Ministry of IT to do so. Some reports said that the ban occurred because the game servers were communicating with Chinese servers.
