PUBG practically invented the genre of battle royale games, considering its immersive gameplay: players parachute on a desolated island, and they’ll have to get their hands on anything to survive. Taking down each other with all sorts of weapons from sniper rifles to grenades is a ‘must’, as the last man standing wins the match.
But despite having millions of players that compete against each other online, PUBG is still not enough to convince the Indian government.
PUBG banned in India along with 118 Chinese apps
The Indian government has conducted another strike against China. Therefore, the Ministry of Information and Technology banned 118 apps for mobile devices, including PUBG Mobile for Android and iOS. This drastic decision comes after complaints were received, claiming that users’ data is being stolen through some mobile apps. The banned apps are considered a threat to India’s sovereignty, integrity, defense, and state security.
Luckily for PUBG players from other regions of the world, the ban is not available for them. They can still enjoy the wonderful benefits of the battle royale game, and the Play Store description is ready to offer some relevant details:
▶New classic map LIVIK◀
2km x 2km map with up to 52 players, allowing for quick gameplay
