May 27, 2023

Krafton has announced Battlegrounds Mobile India will be available for playing starting May 29, 2023. Yes, BGMI for iOS will also be playable on the same day. However, Android users get to preload it early on. Well, today itself. Here’s how.

Steps to preload BGMI on Android from May 27

1. Go to Google Play Store on your Android smartphone and search for BGMI. Those who have installed or played the game before will be able to find it on the list.

2. Download BGMI 2.5.0. (about 790MB in size on my phone). Allow permissions whenever asked. Some of you may have found the game automatically downloaded and updated. Krafton says this is part of the process only.

3. Download an in-game update of around 1080MB in size (the higher quality one).

4. Sign in to the game using Google Play Games, Facebook or Twitter.

5. However, here you’ll be informed that BGMI servers aren’t live yet. The good thing is that we know when the servers will be online.

When can you finally play BGMI on iOS and Android? 

As mentioned already, you will be able to play Battlegrounds Mobile India from May 29 on iOS and Android. 

The company revealed the same through a press release. In it, it teases a new BGMI map, in-game events, etc. 

“We are thrilled to announce that BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA is now available for preload. We are consistently striving to deliver a smooth gameplay experience to our users and are excited to welcome everyone back. We once again, thank the authorities and our users for their continued support as we look forward to elevating the gaming experience for our community in India. See you on the battlegrounds,” says Krafton India CEO, Mr Sean Hyunil Sohn on this occasion. 

Besides the BGMI availability details, Krafton has also launched a new marketing campaign called ‘India ki hearbeat’ that showcases the avid players of this game. Are you one of them?
