PUBG’s UAZ Jeep seen in Battlegrounds Mobile India teaser, Erangel map also mentioned

Battlegrounds Mobile India is getting a new teaser that shows PUBG’s UAZ Jeep and mentions the map named Erangel. The 15-second video was shared on the game’s official YouTube channel, which recently surpassed four million subscribers. Battlegrounds Mobile India is the Indian avatar for PUBG Mobile, which was banned last September due to its connection with Chinese company Tencent. This time around, Battlegrounds Mobile India is released by South Korean developer Krafton and is said to come with some India-specific tweaks.

PUBG Mobile popularized the Battle Royale genre for mobile gamers and brought the ever-popular Erangel map. It is a large map with different terrains, locations, and playing opportunities. To navigate this large map, several vehicles can be found randomly in the game. One of these vehicles is a jeep called UAZ. It can accommodate four players simultaneously, which means that a team can use a UAZ to browse the map quickly. The UAZ has now been teased for Battlegrounds Mobile India, along with the Erangel map. Check out the teaser below.

Interestingly, the teaser spells out the name of the card as “Erangel” and not “Erangle,” which was to be the new name from a previous teaser that showed a postcard with “Erangle” on it. This name change was supposed to be one of the subtle differences that will be present in Battlegrounds Mobile India, but now it looks like it won’t. If the Erangel map has the same name and spelling in Battlegrounds Mobile India, we can also expect the previously teased smaller 4×4 map to have the same name – Sanhok.

Krafton has yet to release a release date for Battlegrounds Mobile India, but speculation suggests the game will be playable from June 18 in the country. This date places the game’s release exactly one month after the pre-registration date on the Google Play Store. However, since the developer has not shared an official release date, fans will have to continue to wait.

Battlegrounds Mobile India has essentially the same gameplay as PUBG Mobile with a few India-specific tweaks. PUBG Mobile was banned in India last September, along with 117 other apps. Since then, developer Krafton has struggled to relaunch it in India, given the popularity of the battle royale genre in the country.
