Finally, PUBG Mobile announced their plans for a re-launch in India, but players should expect the game to have a new ‘tailored’ experience. So far, there is no news about the exact date when the game will be made available, but the company seems ready to re-launch it in India with an elaborate plan.
PUBG Corporation announced its intentions to resolve the issues that banned the game in the first place and some long-standing questions about the immense popularity of games among younger audiences.
PUBG Corporation, the producer of PLAYERUNKNOWN ‘S BATTLEGROUNDS (PUBG) and a subsidiary of KRAFTON, Inc. of South Korea, has revealed that it is planning to launch PUBG Mobile India, a new game specifically created for the Indian market. Along with investments to develop local video games, esports, entertainment, and IT sectors, the company also announced plans to provide a healthy gaming environment.
The new game is designed with the privacy and protection of Indian players as a top priority, PUBG Corporation says. The company claims that it will perform periodic audits and verifications of the storage systems containing the personal identifying information of Indian users to improve security and ensure that their data is handled safely.
Also, in-game content is stated to be enhanced and personalized to reflect local needs. For Indian gamers, different aspects of the game will be tailored, such as the game now being set in a virtual simulation training ground, new characters starting automatically dressed, and green hit effects to reflect the game’s virtual existence. The business will have a feature that places limits on game time to cope with the problems of heavy use by younger players.
Also, PUBG Corporation announced plans to develop an Indian subsidiary to boost player communications and services. More than 100 workers specializing in the industry, esports, and game development will be employed by the Indian company. The company will aim to partner and leverage local businesses to improve its gaming operation, in addition to establishing a local office.
Finally, PUBG Corporation plans to make investments in India worth $100 million with its parent company KRAFTON, Inc. to develop the local video game, esports, entertainment, and IT industries.
This would be the largest investment made by a Korean company outside of the manufacturing sector, according to a statement by the company. By hosting exclusive Indian esports events, which will include tournaments, prize pools, and tournament productions, the company also plans to make investments.
The company claims that more details regarding the launch of PUBG Mobile India will be revealed at a later date.
