PUBG/BGMI Alternatives In India

Even if PUBG/BGMI gets banned in India, there are currently a lot of alternatives that offer battle royale-style gameplay such as COD: Mobile. However, despite having alternatives, there are a few players, who have been playing PUBG for years, and they won't like to lose all their in-game progress.

Do note that, there is also the next-generation game from Krafton -- PUBG: New State, which offers much better graphics and is also has more features when compared to BGMI. However, PUBG: New State is a graphics-intensive game that requires a powerful smartphone to get smooth gameplay, unlike BGMI, which can be played even on entry-level devices.


Do note that, the Govt did ban a fresh set of Chinese apps and games in India. While there are persistent requests from various organizations to ban PUBG/BGMI in India, the Govt does not seems to be interested in re-banning the game in the country.
