The launch of PUBG Mobile India is around the corner because the APK link to download the game briefly appeared for a few users yesterday. Many PUBG players claimed that the “Download” option was visible at the news section of the website, though it was not working.
The official website showed two buttons. The first one led to a Google Play store listing of the game and the second one was an APK link through which users can download the game.
With this new development, speculations are rife that the website is being tested before the official launch of the much-awaited game. PUBG players also took to the micro-blogging site to express their excitement.
The popular PUBG Mobile App was among the 118 Chinese apps that was banned by Indian government in the month of September over national security concerns.
Earlier this month, PUBG Corporation announced its comeback to the Indian market with the creation of an Indian subsidiary and a new game.
The company also unveiled its plans to provide a secure and healthy gameplay environment with investments to cultivate local video game, esports, entertainment and IT industries.
To ensure privacy and data security concerns, PUBG said that it will conduct regular audits and verifications on the storage systems holding Indian users’ personally identifiable information to reinforce security and ensure that the data is safely managed.
They also added that in order to build and foster a healthy gameplay environment, in-game content will be improved and tailored to reflect local needs.
Different aspects of the game will be customized for Indian gamers like the game now being set in a virtual simulation training ground, new characters automatically starting clothed and green hit effects to reflect the virtual nature of the game.
The company will also add a feature that places restrictions on game time to promote healthy gameplay habits for young players.
The company is yet to reveal the launch date of PUBG Mobile India.
