Made-in-India battle royale Indus has crossed 1.5 Million pre-registrations according to Pune-based publisher SuperGaming.

A new playtest has been announced that will allow players to test out the game’s esports features. Participants will be able to share their thoughts on the game directly with SuperGaming and if you want to be part of the playtesting group, here is how you can sign up.

Note: If you are selected, you will be notified via email or phone notifications. 

Indus is set to release later this year and it might fill the hole left by Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) and Free Fire’s absence. With rumors about BGMI doing the rounds, and teams investing in new rosters, it is possible that Indus will have to compete against Krafton’s title in the future.

There are two key advantages that Indus has in its favor. Firstly, it is a multiplatform title that is coming to console and PC, unlike BGMI which is a mobile-only title officially. Secondly, the made-in-India branding by Indus can work in its favor as the Indian audience could feel more connected to a game that seeks to represent the country’s culture.

There is no official release date available yet, but we can expect an announcement in the coming months.
