It’s almost like everywhere you went in the past week, people were talking about BGMI making a comeback. “It is available on the Playstore but the servers are inactive” and “Will BGMI ever even come online?” were some of the things my friends were spotted saying mid-conversation. Well, mobile gamers can finally breathe a sigh of relief as after a long and tedious wait, BGMI has officially made a comeback in the Indian market.
BGMI is back!
Krafton’s Battlegrounds Mobile India has finally made its official comeback. Users can now simply download the BGMI 2.5 version from their respective app stores and experience the newly updated and also heavily Indianized version of the PUBG Mobile. Besides the comeback, BGMI is also offering up to four rewards which include free permanent skins to celebrate its comeback, but there is a catch!
BGMI 2.5 is forced to follow the regulations set by the Indian government. This has translated to Krafton imposing a limited playtime of only 3 hours for players aged below 18. Players above the age of 18 can enjoy the game for 6 hours only (not that you should be playing the game for that long)
Besides the limitations comes the addition of a new map titled Nusa. It is a 1×1 map of a resort island placed somewhere in the tropical zone. It is said to be one of the smallest maps ever introduced in the game with each match in the game lasting only about 8 minutes. There are also several new features in the game like zip lines and elevators which can be installed in hotels for quick transportation across the island.
Besides the new map, new updates have also been made to the older maps. BGMI’s Livik map has received improved textures while Miramar receives new supply shops. It looks like Krafton was long waiting to make a comeback in the Indian market with BGMI as the relaunch of the game also brings about new in-game events. Some of the events in-game vents include Race To The Top In Battlegrounds, Hot Drop Into The Battlegrounds, Gameplay Glory, Underworld Unleashed, and much more.
