PUBG Mobile’s developers today have announced that they will be soon launching a new game called PUBG Mobile India to cater to the needs of Indian players. The original PUBG Mobile Global version was banned back in September by the Indian government and, PUBG Corporation had announced that it will no longer authorize the Tencent Games in India. While the developers had announced that it would terminate access for users in India starting October 30, the game was still playable for several people running Android and iOS OS.

Additionally, the company also states there will be regular audits and verifications on the storage systems that store the personal information of Indian users in order to make sure that the data is kept safe.
The creators have also shared that they will be constantly improving in-game content and will also customize it to “reflect local needs.” These changes include a virtual simulation training ground setting, clothing on new characters, and green hit effects instead of red. It will also add a feature to restrict game time for younger players, as a , measure to stop addiction.
Additionally, PUBG Corporation plans on establishing a local office where it will hire over 100 employees to enhance communications and services with players. “In addition to establishing a local office, the company will look to actively collaborate and leverage local businesses to strengthen its gaming service,” the developers added.
