Battlegrounds Mobile India has teased the popular Sanhok map through a poster on its official Facebook page. The game is the Indian version of PUBG Mobile and the name was recently revealed by publisher Krafton. Battlegrounds Mobile India does not have a release date yet but the developers have said it is coming soon. The game is anticipated to be quite similar to the original PUBG Mobile with a few India specific changes. Krafton had also announced it will build an esports ecosystem while bringing in-game content regularly.
The official Facebook account for Battlegrounds Mobile India shared a poster of what appears to be the Ban Tai map location that is from Sanhok – one of the 4x4 maps in-game. Sanhok was added to PUBG Mobile in September 2018 and will now be playable in Battlegrounds Mobile India. It is a relatively small map compared to the original Erangel and Miramar maps but bigger than the most recent map that was added to the game, Livik. The poster does not share any more details about the game and its release date is still a mystery.
Sanhok will presumable be one of the playable maps in Battlegrounds Mobile India. The game will be up for pre-registration before it launches for the masses.
PUBG Mobile was banned in India in September 2020 along with 117 other apps. Since then, Krafton has been making efforts to bring the game back to India. A couple of months later, PUBG Mobile India was teased to be the Indian version of the game and was to mark the return of PUBG Mobile to the country. However, that did not pan out and now finally, Krafton has announced Battlegrounds Mobile India and its launch seems more promising.
