In related news, Krafton recently announced that it will soon suspend the option to transfer data between Battlegrounds Mobile India and PUBG: Mobile. To recall, data transfer allowed players to transfer their data between their old PUBG: Mobile account and their new Battlegrounds Mobile India account. This would include any purchases they made when they were playing PUBG: Mobile. Krafton notes that data transfer between PUBG: Mobile and Battlegrounds Mobile India will no longer be available after December 31, 2021, 23:59:59 (UTC). This is roughly January 1, 2022, 5:30am IST. As such, any players that did make any purchases are advised to link their accounts as soon as they can so that they can continue to enjoy any in-game items they purchased.
Of course, the whole reason why this has to be implemented is that PUBG: Mobile was banned in India. In order to ensure that Battlegrounds Mobile India’s isn’t banned. Kraftion implemented a number of changes to ensure the violence is toned down, while also addressing the alleged addictive nature of the game. Recently, Krafton added a bunch of new features aimed at ensuring minors do not play the game unsupervised. Every under-18 player that wants to play BGMI will now need to register a parent or guardian before they can play. An OTP will first be sent to the parent or guardian’s phone number, and only then can the minor start playing. Further, minors will also not be able to play for over three hours a day. On top of this, all players will not be allowed to spend over Rs 7,000 per day.
