PUBG Mobile to offer Tesla skins? Will Battlegrounds Mobile India players be left out? Here's what Krafton said
PUBG Mobile is no longer available in India after the ban imposed by government, but fans can experience the game in its new avatar, Battlegrounds Mobile India. Krafton has reintroduced the popular battle royale game in India with India-centric features and it has become a rage again. As for PUBG Mobile, it has gone and done something that is expected to make the game even more thrilling. PUBG Mobile parent company, Krafton, has now partnered with electric car maker Tesla, which is owned by eccentric billionaire Elon Musk. The PUBG Mobile-Tesla partnership was announced on social media with Krafton saying that it will bring the electric carmaker's “revolutionary spirit and products in-game.”
PUBG Mobile hasn’t revealed the details of the partnership yet but it will be in-game products. What exactly those in-game products will be isn’t confirmed yet, but we’re expecting to see Tesla cars in PUBG Mobile. Tesla currently has a series of cars including the Model S, Model X, Model 3, Model Y and the newly launched Tesla Model S Plaid. We could be seeing one of these cars in PUBG Mobile. Krafton has also partnered with McLaren for a McLaren 570S skin. There are a total of six McLaren 570S skins in Pearlescent, Lunar White, Zenith Black, Glory White, Raspberry, and Royal Black.
Similarly, Krafton is expected to offer new skins inspired by Tesla cars in PUBG Mobile. We’ll have to wait for more announcements to know what exactly PUBG Mobile players can expect. The teaser only says, “Are you ready to step into the future with us? We're excited to announce that we will be partnering with Tesla to bring its revolutionary spirit and products in-game!”
Krafton has so far only confirmed the partnership for PUBG Mobile. There’s no word on whether Tesla in-game products will be available in Battlegrounds Mobile India as well. Considering the game is more or less PUBG Mobile in a new avatar we may see the partnership extending here too. But Krafton has promised India specific -in-game events and content so we may be looking at more local collaborations here.
PUBG Mobile fans in India have start experiencing Battlegrounds Mobile India game, which is available in early access mode on the Google Play Store. It’s only for Android users though as the iOS version isn’t available yet.
