Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), a highly popular mobile game in India, has regained its position on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store after being temporarily removed due to government demands. Since its comeback, BGMI has consistently remained in the top charts. To further boost its popularity, Krafton, the game’s developer, has recently announced the Battlegrounds Mobile India Series (BGIS) 2023. As the name suggests, BGIS is a gaming tournament for BGMI squads, competing for a remarkable prize pool of Rs 2 crore. The series commenced on July 20 and will conclude on October 14.
The tournament is divided into two phases – the online qualifiers and the offline grand finals. The thrilling grand finals will be conducted on-ground from October 12 to 14 and will welcome enthusiastic fans as attendees, promising an immersive gaming experience. In line with Krafton’s commitment to providing localized experiences for players and fans, the Grand Finals will be broadcasted in 10 languages, including English, Hindi, and eight other regional languages, ensuring widespread excitement across the nation.
Sean Hyunil Sohn, India CEO of Krafton, expressed the company’s dedication to organizing innovative gaming events and tournaments for the gaming community, offering valuable opportunities to establish their presence in the gaming world. Sohn believes that BGIS 2023 is just the beginning of a thriving gaming community.
The series kicks off with “The Grind,” where 256 invited teams will fiercely compete to secure their position among the top 64 teams advancing to Round 2 and Round 3 of the tournament. The Grind will determine which invited teams, along with players from the In-Game Qualifiers, will qualify for the main event. Registration for the BGIS series is scheduled from July 24 to August 2, with verifications taking place from August 3 to August 9.
Verified teams will then participate in intense in-game qualifiers through 15 classic matches, held from August 10 to August 17. Their top 10 match scores will determine their rankings and their chances of proceeding to the grand finals, where they will battle for glory and the prestigious prize money.
BGMI enthusiasts and players across the country are eagerly looking forward to the Battlegrounds Mobile India Series 2023, as the event promises to be a thrilling and competitive showcase of gaming talent, bringing together players from all corners of India.
