PUBG in India has been banned but in Korea the new version of PUBG Mobile is out.
The new version is one of the versions of PUBG mobile made for players in South Korea however it can be played without the need of using a VPN in any part of the world including INDIA.
You are required to install it through a 3rd party app like APK pure or any other websites.
Also the update needs to be installed the same way.
Although there are many differences between PUBG Mobile and PUBG Korean, they are quite the same in all terms of mechanisms, gameplay, matching, etc. So the change will not affect your skill level. The downside being that you will have higher Ping, the reason being that you will be connected to the Korean servers. PUBG Korean has lots of different skins and new features also.
Also PUBG Korean players and PUBG global players can play with each other and also both games have the same server choice. So you can be matched PUBG Korean is just like PUBG Mobile when it comes to matchmaking, players do come across many hackers.
You will meet both PUBG Korean players and PUBG Mobile players in matches and also you can connect with your global friends and play together with them too.
Advantages of PUBG mobile Korean:
1. VPN is not necessary to play the game, anyone can play the game from any part of the world.
2. Ping is the same just like in global version. You will get the same ping but it also depends on your network. I use a 4g sim and in Asia server, I got a ping around 120 ms in Korean version
3. Same server choices are available just like in global version and matchmaking is done with both global and Korean version players so it’s basically the same matchmaking exactly like global version.
4. global version and kr version players can team up and play together.
5. Availability of dongstaku medals that can be used to open any 3 of the crates : pubg crate, pubg classic crate and pubg premium crate. 4 of these dongstaku medals are needed to open one. Also dongstaku medals are mythic category items but they can be obtained very easily.
Disadvantages of PUBG Korean version:
1. You cannot connect your global version ID with the Korean version game and vice versa. So you may need to open a new account when starting to play Korean version pubg.
2. You cannot join clans created by global version players and vice versa.
3. You cannot request for UC gifts(like royale pass) from global version players
4. Some/most global version events will not appear in kr version. Although the global version events are not much rewarding some of them might be useful.
5. Crates have time limit of 20–30 days. If rewards are not obtained within the time period they might reappear after a very long period. After time period is over new items are bought into list in the specific crates.
