PUBG’s New Game: Undawn Can Be Available In India; PUBG Mobile Will Be Allowed Now?
Garena Undawn is a new zombie survival game developed by Tencent-owned Lightspeed & Quantum Studios (developer of PUBG Mobile) and published by Garena .
Gamers might recognize Garena of Free Fire, the hugely popular battle royale with over 500 million downloads on Android alone, and COD Mobile fame.
About The Game
The game is another post-apocalyptic zombie survival fare offering players a player-vs-player (PvP) or a player-vs-environment (PvE) experience.
In the open world, players get to do things like building bases, crafting resources and scavenging all in the name of survival in a world plagued by zombies.
It will be an open world co-op third person shooter developed using the Unreal Engine 4 platform implying that it could run on multiple devices eventually.
It is said to be available cross platform i.e. simultaneously on mobile and PC.
Tencent is also ambitious in delivering a AAA quality game, as opposed to its mobile-centric focus in the past years.
Currently the game is in the pre-alpha stage, meaning players can sign up to be selected for the limited testing phase, and only a select few will be chosen to play the game and provide feedback on optimisation and other features.
The official release is said to take place later this year.
One can sign up for the same on the dedicated Undawn website. It is currently open to only Android users.
The big question remains: is it coming to India? Let’s review the facts.
The publisher Garena is based in Singapore, which is not associated with mainland China, so people can cross their fingers and hope the game makes its way to India.
Another thing to note is that Garena’s Free Fire game has been available in the Indian Playstore from the start, so the same could potentially apply to Undawn.
Those still holding out hope for a return of PUBG Mobile to India, should start exploring other titles.
Despite PUBG Mobile registering as an Indian company to avoid exclusion from the Indian market, there is no substantial news yet regarding whether or not it will make a comeback.
PUBG e-Sports players have also been shifting base from India to other regions in order to continue participation in global tournaments.
Krafton, the parent company of the game, has also been working tirelessly to earn approvals from the Centre.
Its chairman, Byung-Gyu Chang, minced no words in a statement: “In my heart, I want to release the game as soon as possible, but it’s not our (Krafton) problem, it’s India’s problem.”
