PUBG Mobile re-launch: What will be different in the new Indian version
PUBG Corporation has finally revealed the launch plans for PUBG Mobile, the most popular Battle Royale game before the Indian government decided to ban it due to privacy concerns. The speculations of a re-launch became more rampant after the company decided to sever ties with its Chinese publishing partner Tencent in India. Now, PUBG Corporation, announced that it is preparing to launch PUBG Mobile India.
The company has clearly stated that this will be a new game created specifically for the Indian market. Since this is a specific game built for India, there will be a few changes that will be introduced both in the gameplay and even other aspects of the game including new set of restrictions.
One of the primary reasons for PUBG Mobile to get banned in India was the vulnerability of user data. With the new version of PUBG Mobile, the company claims safety is a top priority for PUBG Corporation. The company will conduct regular audits and verifications on the storage systems holding Indian users’ personally identifiable information to reinforce security and ensure that their data is safely managed.
In the gameplay, the company claimed that content will be improved and tailored to reflect local needs. The game will now be set in a virtual simulation training ground and new characters with start clothed. Another difference is the hit effect. Earlier, users had the choice to change hit colours. In the new version, the default will be set to green hit effects. This will be done in order to reflect the virtual nature of the game.
