Battlegrounds Mobile India: How to Download BGMI Early Access APK and OBB Files
There is still a way to get your hands on the BGMI Early Access APK.
Krafton released the Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) Early Access APK yesterday, on June 17. The announcement caught the community by surprise as players rushed to get their hands on the open beta version. Unfortunately, only a handful of users could successfully register for the testing programme, as it reached the user limit extremely fast. While we recommend obtaining the official BGMI Early Access APK via the Google Play Store, it will take quite some time to gain access to the game via this method since the game "isn't accepting any more testers" at this point. Fortunately, you can download and install BGMI through third party sources. Here is how you can obtain the APK and OBB files to start playing Battlegrounds Mobile.
How to Download and Install BGMI Early Access APK and OBB Files
There is an alternate method available to start playing the new Battlegrounds Mobile India Early Access version even if you are not able to get your hands on the official APK via the Google Play Store. Follow the steps below to download and install the APK and OBB files on your mobile devices.
First, download both the APK and OBB files to your mobile device.
Open the downloaded files which should by default be inside the 'Downloads' folder within the 'File Manager'.
Before moving forward make sure that you have the option to install from unknown sources enabled on your android device.
Now, install the downloaded APK file.
Once done, you now have to extract the OBB file. Simply tapping on the file should present you with an 'Extract' option.
Make sure that you are extracting the content of this OBB file to the OBB folder, usually found within the Android section through your File Manager.
This is it, you are now ready to start playing the Battlegrounds Mobile India Early Access version by simply tapping on the game icon.
In a majority of devices, this process is hassle-free and quite straightforward. On some Android devices, you may experience issues with the default File Manager apps. In such a situation, you can try third-party File Manager applications like Cx File Explorer, FX File Manager, or other similar apps which will likely rectify these problems.
