In September 2020, the government of India banned PUBG Mobile in India. Since then, players were waiting for PUBG Mobile India. However, while waiting for PUBG Mobile India, Krafton announced PUBG New State. Later, Krafton announced Battlegrounds Mobile India for the Indian fans.
The PUBG New State was announced in February, whereas BGMI was announced on the 6th of May.
Although these games were announced after the ban of PUBG Mobile in India, these games are entirely different. This article will explain how these games are different.
1. In-Game Differences.
There will be a massive difference between the gameplay of both games. The Battlegrounds Mobile India will be more or less similar to PUBG Mobile. However, PUBG New State will have no connection with the original PUBG Mobile.
The developers say that PUBG New State is set in the year 2051. Thus, PUBG New State will have futuristic weapons and vehicles.
The developers stated, “Ultra-realistic graphics that exceed the limits of mobile gaming with the ‘global illumination’ technology, PUBG: NEW STATE surpasses what was previously possible in mobile gaming graphics.”
2. Regional Availability
The developers stated that PUBG New State would release globally except for China, Vietnam, and India. However, Battlegrounds Mobile India will exclusively release for India, as the name states.
Krafton is developing BGMI exclusively for India after the ban of PUBG Mobile in India.
3. Pre-registration and in-game rewards
The developers revealed that the pre-registered players for PUBG New State would get a limited permanent vehicle skin in-game. However, they did not reveal the name of the vehicle.
On the other hand, the pre-registered players for BGMI will get Recon Outfit, Recon Mask, the Celebration Expert title, and 300 AGs.
BGMI is expected to release in June. However, PUBG New State will be released at the end of the year. It will be exciting to see what these games bring for the players.
