The open beta testing has already reached the maximum number of participants but Krafton plans to offer more slots frequently. This early access to Battlegrounds Mobile India comes amidst critics asking the government to ban the game even before its launch. In concession to government demands, Krafton has to make big changes to the game.

It even announced that the game will use green colour instead of red to symbolise blood. It has also announced plans to build an esports ecosystem in the country. If you are a PUBG Mobile player then one of the things that matters to you is the data. Krafton will allow data transfer, allowing PUBG Mobile players to port their data to Battlegrounds Mobile India. Here is what you need to know.

BGMI will let you transfer your PUBG Mobile account till December 31st, 2021

Krafton has confirmed that Battlegrounds Mobile India data transfer will apply to all those players who have an account from PUBG Mobile Nordic Map: Livik, also referred to as prior app. The data transfers, according to Krafton, will be available until December 31st, 2021.

During this data transfer process, some of the data from the prior app account will be transferred to the new app. It is important to note that normal gameplay will be possible even if the data transfer is not immediately implemented.

If a player proceeds with the data transfer after playing the game with their new account in the new app, the data from the prior app will replace any data existing on the new app such that all of the player’s progress including purchased items and play data from the new app will be deleted,” the company explained.
