When it comes to mobile gaming, Battle Royale is one of the most popular genres prevalent in India. The abrupt rise of PUBG Mobile shook the Indian gaming industry to its very core, reminding us with a very formidable fact about just how inspiring and influencing games can be on young minds.

The easy availability of mobile gaming devices and cheap data plans boosted the impact of PUBG Mobile in India.

After the ban of PUBG Mobile, BGMI stood its ground and maintained the audience appeal and interest.

The charm of BGMI has introduced local and national gaming tournaments with millions of players participating and attending. This would not be possible without the original fascination that Battle Royale brought with itself.

The most stunning aspect of Battle Royale is the amount of different games it brings to its audience, each game being distinctively unique in its own way while still following the main rule of survival in Battle Royale.

Some new and old Battle Royale games to look out for are:
