KRAFTON has now announced that BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA (BGMI) is playable for all Android and iOS users. BGMI was banned in India back in July 2022. BGMI follows on the success of PUBG Mobile but was still banned in the country. The latter was previously banned by the Indian government after the 2020 Indo–Chinese border violence. The main point of contention was that PUBG Mobile comes under the Chinese company Tencent, even though Krafton itself is a Korean company.
After a staggered rollout that began on May 29, the game is now playable for all users.
The company has released the 2.5 update for BGMI which includes a brand-new map – Nusa, in-game events, weapon upgrades, and new skins. Users can download the game from Google Play Store and App Store.
As it has been close to a year since the game was banned, chances are that users will now look to download the game again. If you are wondering whether it is possible to get access to your old account, worry not. Read on to find out more.

Getting access to old accounts
Users who played the game after linking BGMI to their social media accounts should be able to access their accounts. While users can play the game from a guest account, the data will be erased if you delete the game or change your device.
So, if you only accessed BGMI through a guest account earlier, all your data would be lost.
