Battlegrounds Mobile India Crosses 5 Million Downloads in Early Access

Battlegrounds Mobile India has surpassed five million downloads in its early access phase which is available to everyone in the country. South Korean developer Krafton has shared this development by thanking Indian players through player notifications. The game was available for download in open beta for a few testers on June 17th and was open to everyone on June 18th and it has already surpassed five million downloads. Battlegrounds Mobile India is the Indian version of PUBG Mobile which was banned in the country in September last year.

Crafton gave each Battlegrounds Mobile India player a classic crate coupon, thanking them for five million downloads. The in-game event event screen displays a ‘5M Downloads Gift’ notification that says, “Thank you India! Celebrating 5M Downloads, we send our thanks with this extra gift! Enjoy!” The notification rewards players with a free coupon that they can use to open classic crates and get random prizes. The game has only been available for download for two days and the first day was only for beta testers.

Crafton launched the beta test on June 17 for a limited number of users, and the slots were filled almost instantly. You can check out the first impressions of our game.

With Battlegrounds Mobile India eagerly waiting for almost nine months now, it is no surprise to see so many players jump in. The game is an Indian version of PUBG Mobile which was banned in the country in September last year. Earlier last month, Battlegrounds Mobile India went up for pre-registration on the Google Play Store and by the first week of this month, it had surpassed 20 million pre-registrations. The five million download mark seems to be the first milestone of a hugely popular game yet to reach iOS devices.
