South Korean developer KRAFTON launched Battlegrounds Mobile India support page According to which, “OTP” authentication will be required to log-in to the game. Many information has been provided in this, such as how many times players can ask for OTP, how long will the validity of the OTP, etc. This suggests that players will have to register their phone number to play the game and will be able to play the game only after verifying the OTP, which simply means that mobile number verification will be required to play the game.
The website of Battlegrounds Mobile India states that a user can enter the ‘Verify Code’ three times, after which it will not work. A verification code will be valid for five minutes and the player can request OTP only 10 times, after which he will be banned from making requests for 24 hours. One phone number can be registered on up to 10 accounts.
PUBG Mobile was banned in the country in September last year. Whereas Battlegrounds Mobile India will offer a largely similar battle royale experience. However, there will be some minor changes in this game for Indian players. In PUBG Mobile, players got the option to log-in through Facebook and Twitter as well as Google Play and Guest accounts.
This raises some concerns for data migration from PUBG Mobile to Battlegrounds Mobile India. Although KRAFTON has not yet officially confirmed whether PUBG Mobile players in India will be able to transfer their data to Battlegrounds Mobile India, but GodNixon, the creator of PUBG Mobile related content, has posted on its YouTube channel. Channel But putting up a video said that it is highly likely that players will be able to do this. But now, when the login method seems to be different, it is not clear whether the data migration will still happen. It may also happen that apart from the option to log-in via OTP, the options included in the game in PUBG Mobile may also be retained.
