What to expect from PUBG Mobile India?
PUBG Mobile was among the 118 Chinese apps that were banned in India citing security reasons. The India government said that these apps “are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, the security of the state and public order”.
It was only last month that we got an update from PUBG Corporation that it had received permission to re-launch the game in India while at the same time adhering to the rules and regulations.
The company has also said that it is looking to better data security and ensure that the data of its users is safe and stored locally.
The India version of the battle royale game is expected to come with changes in the gameplay, clothes characters in the lobby at the beginning of the game and other alterations as per directions by the government.
