PUBG Mobile’s return is highly anticipated by the Indian mobile gaming community as the developers recently announced a slightly modified Indian version of the game along with a $100 million investment. Despite being a bit different from the global version these changes will have no impact on gameplay and according to a recent report by ‘Memphiz’, the Indian users will most likely have access to all their skins and other in-app purchases from the global version transferred over to the new Indian version.
Indian PUBG Mobile Users Might Get Access To All Their Skins And In-App Purchases
As per a report by Memphiz who is a Liquipedia Editor for both PUBG and VALORANT, data from the global version (PUBG Mobile) which is maintained by Proxima Beta Pte. Limited will be transferred over to PUBG Corporation who will be operating the Indian version (PUBG Mobile India).
“Users (Indian) will likely be able to have their Skins and In-App purchases from Global Version on their Indian Version.”
He has shared a video of the claim on Instagram which shows a user getting all his data transferred from the global version over to the Indian one. On the main menu in-game the following message can be seen highlighted on top, ‘The player you are viewing has migrated to PUBG Mobile India’.
Further information reveals that the migration of data from the global version over to the Indian version will only be available until 1st June 2021 from the day of release following which 'such transfer will no longer be possible'.
“I'm not too sure why this was being shown in the Global version, but it does confirm that there is something in the works for data to be transferred from the Global version to the Indian version”
The users will be notified of the same when they log-in to the game as their permission would be required for the transfer of data. This is huge news for all the PUBG Mobile players across the country who were concerned about the same since the news about the game’s return to India broke out last week.
Note: The Proxima Beta Pte. Limited is a Singapore based company under Tencent which has control over the data for the global version (PUBG Mobile).
Already the works are in process for the release of PUBG Mobile India as multiple advertisements have been produced with famous local players and personalities like Dynamo, Jonathan, and Kronten. The teasers of these ads have already been released with Kronten recently claiming that PUBG Mobile India will be released by 20th November.
