Highlights

  • PUBG Mobile Royale Pass season may not be available on Battlegrounds Mobile.
  • Battlegrounds Mobile India may have different Royale Pass seasons.
  • The pre-registrations for Battlegrounds Mobile India will open on May 18.

Battlegrounds Mobile India will arrive on Google Play Store for pre-orders on May 18. Now, the release date for the Indian version of PUBG Mobile is not available yet, but we are hearing something new every day about the battle royale game. According to an Indian YouTuber, the Battlegrounds Mobile India game will get its first Royale Pass season on the very first day, and that these seasons will be different from the PUBG Mobile Royale Passes.

Luv Sharma, who goes by his alias GodNixon on YouTube, has posted a video in which he has claimed that players will get to see "the new season and Royale Pass on the same day of the game's release." And this Royale Pass season will be different from what PUBG Mobile has going on. Right now, PUBG Mobile players are seeing the beginning of Season 19, but for Battlegrounds Mobile India, it is going to be Season 1. However, specifics regarding all of the collectibles and items that will be available in the Indian version are not known right now.

It makes sense to have a different Royale Pass season for Battlegrounds Mobile because Krafton, the company behind the PUBG IP, does not want any linkage to PUBG Mobile. A gaming content creator was recently told off by Krafton not to use the words "PUBG Mobile" in any of the videos or the content. Krafton is possibly moving ahead with caution because PUBG Mobile is a banned entity. Krafton does not need the government's permission for Battlegrounds Mobile India but for PUBG Mobile.

Previously, another YouTuber who is popular as Ghatak said the Battlegrounds Mobile India players will not lose the inventory that they acquired in PUBG Mobile global version. This includes the Unknown Cash (UC), skins, and outfits for players who are using PUBG Mobile Global. Last year, after the ban, a large horde of mobile gamers resorted to downloading global or Korean versions of PUBG Mobile because their IP addresses were still accessible on Indian mobile and broadband networks.

Battlegrounds Mobile India will include certain measures that Krafton has taken to avoid a last year-like situation, which is the ban. The new Indian version of PUBG Mobile will have certain restrictions for those under 18, such as a three-hour limit on playing time, a Rs 7,000 cap on in-app purchases, and, most importantly, consent from parents through mobile verification. And for all the users, Krafton is changing a few things. The blood spill will be replaced by the green-hit effect while the avatars will be fully clothed right from the beginning.

Krafton will open pre-registration for Battlegrounds Mobile India on May 18, but this will only be for Android users. Users with an iPhone will have to wait.
