In the past few years, Gaming has established itself as a new genre in entertainment as well as sports. Games such as Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), Garena Free Fire, and Call of Duty Mobile have revolutionized the gaming scenario in India.
Our Expert 8bit Thug has also said, "The gaming scene in India has increased so much, that there should be a gamer in each house".
Esports in India has gone to the next level after the introduction of mobile games in India as a departure from just PC games, because:
- Most people have mobile phones as teenagers.
- In general, mobile devices are cheap as compared to gaming PCs.
- Accessory-requirements are less.
- Multifunctionality while playing and easy to play at any location.
While esports made a positive impact, there are some drawbacks, such as:
- What if the game is banned?
- What if the craze around that games goes away?
- You can't rely on a single game.
- Your gaming standards should be the best all of the time.
Knowing all this, you might be wondering how you can launch your esports career. Here are some of the upcoming games based on which you can build your esports career.
