Buoyed by the return of its video game Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) to India on a three-month trial by the government, South Korean video game developer Crafton on Thursday announced its eSports YouTube channel and Instagram page for the country.
The channel, named Crafton India Esports, aims to promote the growth of the eSports ecosystem in the country, the company said in a statement.
Crafton Inc. India CEO Sean Hyunil Sohn said, “With our dedicated eSports channels and upcoming tournaments, we look forward to bringing engaging experiences and growing alongside our gaming community in the country.”
The company is hosting the ‘Road to Valor: Empires’ series of matches on May 26.
Players can participate in exciting matches against the developers from the Krafton team, where the winning player gets a chance to win 1000 gems as a reward.
The company said it will hold developer vs player matches every Friday for its flagship titles, enabling gamers to challenge game creators and showcase their skills.
Last week, BGMI Sports returned to the country. The government said it would closely monitor the game for three months before giving it a final nod.
“We are extremely grateful to the Indian authorities for allowing us to resume operations for Battlegrounds Mobile India,” Sohan said in a statement.
