PUBG is coming back! Good news about ID of game players
For the last two weeks, there has been a lot of discussion about the re-launch of PUBG game. PUBG players are now eagerly waiting for their favourite game to return. But in the meantime, another good news has arrived about the user ID of the game players. Here’s what the buzz is about.
According to Insider Sports, the old ID of users will work in PUBG Mobile users and they will not need to create a separate ID. The Indian version will also run with the ID being used in PUBG Global so far.
Reports have said that PUBG Mobile India will be an updated version of the game. The Indian version will be different from the global version.
As per tech website Business Insider, PUBG has chosen Microsoft’s cloud service Azure to store the data of Indian users. PUBG’s parent company Krafton has joined hands with Microsoft for this new project.
In line with the Government of India’s rules on data privacy and security, the setup is being prepared in a way that users’ data is kept in the country itself. To play PUBG this time, the user will have to go through a new verification process. This process is a part of the company’s efforts to protect the data of Indian users.
Last week, PUBG Corporation said that it is making a comeback to the Indian market with the creation of an Indian subsidiary and a new game. PUBG said it is preparing to launch PUBG Mobile India, a new game created specifically for the Indian market.
The Indian subsidiary will hire over 100 employees specialising in business, esports, and game development, PUBG Corp had said.
To assuage privacy and data security concerns, PUBG said it will conduct regular audits and verifications on the storage systems holding Indian users’ personally identifiable information to reinforce security and ensure that their data is safely managed.
The company will include a feature that places restrictions on game time to promote healthy gameplay habits for younger players.
The immensely popular PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) Mobile app was among the 118 Chinese apps that the Indian government banned in September over national security concerns.
To get the ban lifted, PUBG Corp made the decision to no longer authorise the PUBG Mobile franchise to China-based Tencent Games in India.
