Highlights of the Story

  • Players can get around the ban by downloading the PUBG Mobile Korea Version
  • VPN’s might not be able to bypass the ban
  • PC and console versions of PUBG are available for purchase
  • PC version of PUBG Lite is available to download for free

Both PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite have now been added to the list of banned apps in India. Games like Knives Out and Rules of Survival along with Life After are also in the list of a 118 banned apps in India. However, the games are still available on the Play Store but not for very long, we assume. As soon as the ban is implemented, the games will be removed from the Google Play Store in India. This has led to hardcore players of the game to wonder if there are other workarounds this situation. Luckily, there is for now. The PUBG Mobile Korea version can be download and installed to play the game after the ban.

PUBG Mobile Korea Version

The Korean version of PUBG has a variety of skins and outfits that sets it apart from the global version. Furthermore, the Korean version of the game gets updates faster than the global version.
