Is BGMI back for download? Here are the details about its return

Reports of BGMI’s return to the Play Store proved false. The hype of its unban continues as Krafton introduces policies for users under 18.

There were some reports yesterday that claimed that the popular battle royale game Battlegrounds Mobile India was available for download on Google Play Store. However, the reports turned out to be false as the game has not returned to Play Store. The hype of BGMI unban and getting back into the Indian gaming community has been increasing for some time.

The Indian government had given its green signal to Krafotn, the company behind BGMI to re-launch the game for a three-month trial period. According to reports, the Indian government will be paying close attention to issues of user harm and addiction during the three-month trial period. 

Krafton the makers of the game were in continuous discussions with the Government of India and the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) to bring the game back after it was banned by the MeitY citing security reasons. To comply with the Indian government, Krafton has released two important policies for users or gamers who are the under the age of 18.

Policies for users under the age of 18

  1. For those who are underage, Battlegrounds Mobile India has rigorous guidelines. If you are under 18, you will only be permitted to play BGMI for three hours, according to Krafton’s rules. Additionally, individuals can play it provided their parents or guardians give their permission. At this time, it is unclear how Krafton will verify users’ identities. It is possible that it will want a formal document to verify your identification. 
  2. In accordance with Krafton, for those who are “under the age of 18 years, the maximum daily amount of using the game’s paid service will be Rs 7,000.” Additionally, this amount will vary daily according to the currency rate.

An official statement from KRAFTON says, “Currently, the closed test track for BGMI is updated. Those who opted for a public test for the game before its launch are expected to get a message which takes them to the play store for downloading the game. However, the link won’t work and the game cannot be downloaded as the servers have been shut down. We also understand that some other users who had not opted for the closed test are also getting this message. This is a technical error and we are working on resolving it.”
