It seems that the wait is finally over for the lovers of Battlegrounds Mobile India as Krafton has released the official version of BGMI for Android devices. It had earlier released the early access of BGMI on Google Play Store on 17th June, 2021 and various speculations were going round the internet about the release of official version of BGMI.
Krafton was overwhelmed to see the response given by Indian fans to this game and claimed to release the official version in the first week of July as they had to fix some technical issues in the game and as we can see, our wait for the release of the official version of BGMI didn’t go in vain. BGMI is specially designed for Indian users and has come up with various changes like green leaf damage effect and showing ‘defeated’ instead of ‘killed’ when you eliminate an enemy.
