As part of its terms of service for Battlegrounds Mobile India, Krafton has also specified that under-18 gamers will need to enter a contact number belonging to their parents and gain subsequent consent from them in order to play the game. The Korean publishing house has also added a clearly worded explanation of parental control, stating that parents concerned about minors having given the game consent to collect private data without proper oversight can directly write to Krafton to have their data removed.
The new spending limit imposed in Battlegrounds Mobile India comes as a recourse to previous reports that had cited numerous instances of minors taking extreme measures to gain access to financial instruments, which allowed them to spend on in-game items – a by-product of addiction to the previous edition of the game. With this, Battlegrounds Mobile India looks set to begin its journey in the country again. The title will be up for pre-registrations soon, and open access will follow soon.
