BGMI will be available for download both on Apple’s App Store and Google Play Store. Some Android users who opted for the public test of the game before its launch can already download it through Google Play Store and BGMI’s official website but it is not visible within the app store.
Many players also reported that they are unable to play the game even after downloading it. According to the company’s official statement, there are some technical issues and they are working to fix them.
At present BGMI is getting relaunched with a trial period of 90 days. Union Minister of State for Electronics and IT Rajiv Chandrashekhar tweeted that the authorities will closely monitor the game within this time period on issues like user harm, addiction and etc before taking a final decision.
The company has addressed India’s concerns and will be trying to stick to the government’s regulations. They have also brought several alterations like changing the blood color from red to green. In the official release last week, Krafton India CEO Sean Hyunil Sohn expressed his gratitude to Indian authorities for following them to resume operations of BGMI and to the Indian gaming community for their support and patience.
