KRAFTON Inc., the South Korean video game holding company, has recently introduced the Beta version of the highly popular Battlegrounds Mobile India game for select users in the country. BGMI was banned in India last July over concerns related to security, quite similarly to PUBG, whose place it had taken for the same reason. Before that, this game had achieved a monumental number of 100 million players in the country and drove in the majority of the eSports market revenue as well.

The CEO of KRAFTON India, Sean Hyunil Sohn, said the following about the BGMI game’s return to the country in a press statement, “We are highly grateful to the Indian authorities for allowing us to resume operations of Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI). We would like to extend our gratitude to our Indian gaming community for their support and patience over the past few months. We are excited to announce that Battlegrounds Mobile India will be available for download soon and we cannot wait to welcome you back to our platform. We believe in the power of gaming to bring people together and create unforgettable experiences.”

BGMI Beta Tester Apk is currently available for select users to download from the official website link. The user on the website will find a message from KRAFTON about whether they are eligible to install the app on their device or not.

It will either read, “App not available for this account. Your account isn’t currently eligible for this app’s testing program,” or, “If you’ve been invited to become a tester, make sure you’re signed in to the account that was invited to the testing program. If you’ve been invited to a Google Group as part of the program, make sure you’ve joined the Group.”

Even though the BGMI Beta Tester has been introduced now, the exact date for the release of the game is unknown. As per the tweet from Rajeev Chandrasekhar, the Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship of India, KRAFTON is going to resume BGMI in the country with a 3-month trial approval, in which the concerned authorities will keep a watch on the users, about whether it is harmful and addictive for them or not, before taking a final call about releasing the game.
