Krafton’s India exclusive battle royale mobile game Battlegrounds Mobile India (BMI) whose pre-registration went live for Android users on May 18, has successfully reached the 20 million milestone. The highly anticipated mobile game is still available for pre-registration on the Google Play Store, but sadly there is still no update about when it will be available for iOS users who are impatiently waiting to pre-register themselves.

No official game trailer or teaser of the gameplay has been released so far, as everything seems to be kept tightly wrapped up. However, the developers did list out a few changes that we can expect to see in Battlegrounds Mobile India,
