Battlegrounds Mobile India is expected to launch later this month and popular streamer Aaditya Sawant, better known by his channel name Dynamo Gaming has now revealed some information around the title to The Indian Express. The popular ex-PUBG Mobile player has over 9 million subscribers on YouTube and was even spotted in the official Battlegrounds Mobile India teaser that went live on May 18.
The burning question: PUBG Mobile data on Battlegrounds Mobile India?
Sawant suggests that a transfer of account data between PUBG Mobile and Krafton’s new Battlegrounds Mobile India game might be possible. “I am aware of a few things like Krafton being the central data hub for both PUBG and Battlegrounds Mobile India and therefore; the Indian players would be restoring their previous ID assets,” he said in an email interview.
Sawant however, adds that we will have to wait for Krafton to officially drop details on aspects like a launch date, playing with other players overseas and other questions.
He adds that in case we do not see an account transfer being possible, he is positive that players will stick to playing Battlegrounds Mobile India from scratch rather than continuing to play PUBG Mobile via unofficial means like VPN.
“Battlegrounds Mobile India is specifically designed for Indians. There will be more perks in BGMI for Indian gamers as compared to PUBG,” he said. “Most of the gamers also know the pains of playing with VPN i.e. immense lag, high ping issues etc. We experienced a lot of people playing PUBG to maintain their skills while waiting for Battlegrounds Mobile India to launch,” he added.
New India-specific in-game elements and emphasis on Indian culture
Talking about new elements that he’d like to see in Battlegrounds Mobile India, Sawant mentioned that he hopes “we would be experiencing Indian style outfits”. He pointed out that other versions of the popular game promoted auspicious occasions like the Chinese New Year, and that we should see some “features that could enhance the beauty of Indian cultures”.
Indian mobile eSports to grow post-Battlegrounds Mobile India
Sawant also suggests that mobile eSports will grow further after the launch of Battlegrounds Mobile India. “Esports prevailed even before the launch of PUBG-M, but operated at a smaller scale. It gradually started growing when the audience started witnessing and enjoying PUBG tournaments like PMCO, PMIS etc,” Sawant said.
