PUBG Mobile Google Play Store URL in Battlegrounds Mobile India: Incorrect or Intentional

Battleground Mobile India

The Battlegrounds Mobile India pre-registration was released via the Google Play store on May 18, but its URL still mentions PUBG Mobile. This game is the Indian avatar of PUBG Mobile. Since the launch of PUBG mobile phones in India was banned in September last year, South Korean developer Krafton has been working hard to reissue PUBG mobile phones in India. 

In order for this to be possible, they had to cancel the name of PUBG Mobile, which is why their redux is called Battlegrounds Mobile India. But it seems they may have lost a place. In early May, Krafton announced Battlegrounds Mobile India as the Indian version of PUBG Mobile and pre-registered the game through the Google Play store in the country on Tuesday, May 18. 

Interestingly, IGN India found out that Battlegrounds Mobile India’s Google Play store URL contained the text PUBG Mobile. It is mentioned that the PUBG Mobile URL is still live. You can clearly see “pubg. mobile” in the URL, but the reason behind this is not clear. This can be a simple developer mistake or it can be a deliberate mistake. 

IGN India noted that “com.pubg.immobile” is an application package, which will affect the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) of the application in the Google Play store. Gadgets 360 has contacted Krafton for clarity and will update this space after receiving a response. The gameplay of BattlegroundsMobile India is basically the same as PUBG Mobile, but there are some tweaks. 

In announcing the name, Krafton stated that it will have an esports ecosystem that includes competitions and leagues, as well as unique in-game features (such as clothing). He also shared that those who pre-register will receive specific rewards when the game officially launches. 

The Battlegrounds Mobile India listing on Google Play also shows the popular Erangel and Miramar maps in the PUBG Mobile India section. These two maps can be added to the smaller 4×4 Battlegrounds Mobile India map, Sanhok, shown above. 

As of now, Battlegrounds Mobile India has no release date, but you will be notified by pre-registering the game and selecting the automatic installation option. When released, it allows you to play the game on the first day.
