Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) Returns to Google Play Store with Technical Issues

Download Unavailability and Server-related Problems

Krafton, the developer of Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), has announced that the game is currently not available for download. Users who opted for the public test track before the game’s launch may receive a message directing them to the Play Store for downloading the game. However, the link provided will not work as the servers have been shut down. Even users who did not participate in the closed test are experiencing this issue, which the company acknowledges as a technical error. Krafton is actively working on resolving the problem.

BGMI’s Return and Conditional Terms

BGMI, previously banned in India due to security concerns, has made its return to the Google Play Store for Android smartphones. Although the game is not directly listed on the app store, users can visit BGMI’s official website and click on the Play button to be redirected to the download page. The game is available for free download. However, it should be noted that BGMI is currently not available on the Apple App Store for iOS devices, although its availability is expected in the near future.

Government’s Involvement and Conditions

Krafton expressed gratitude to the Indian government for lifting the ban on BGMI. The game’s return is subject to certain conditions set by the government. These conditions include implementing a time limit within the game to address addiction concerns and adapting the user interface (UI) to be more suitable for Indian audiences. Notably, BGMI was already customized for Indian users prior to its ban, and Krafton had also partnered with Microsoft Azure to ensure the security of Indian users’ data. However, the specifics of these conditions have not been confirmed by Krafton.

Krafton’s Response and Professional Gamers’ Reactions

Krafton, in a release, expressed gratitude to the Indian authorities for allowing the resumption of BGMI’s operations in India. Krafton India CEO Sean Hyunil Sohn conveyed appreciation to the Indian gaming community for their support and patience during the past months. The company is eagerly looking forward to welcoming users back to the BGMI platform. Krafton emphasizes its strong commitment to the Indian gaming ecosystem.

The return of BGMI is also a relief for professional mobile gamers. Founders of Loco, Ashwin Suresh and Anirudh Pandita, commented that this revival holds tremendous potential for players and the gaming industry as a whole.

BGMI’s Impressive Milestones

Krafton highlights that BGMI achieved the milestone of 100 million users within a year of its launch. The game’s popularity soared as it became the first esports event to be televised, attracting 24 million concurrent viewers and a total of 200 million viewers.
