Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) has been made safer for players under the age of 18 thanks to a series of new precautions implemented by Krafton. Under the 'Game Responsibly' campaign, the gaming company has included additional parental control options.
Krafton has implemented two big adjustments as part of the campaign: time limits and OTP verification. Both adjustments are made to guarantee that BGMI provides a secure and responsible gaming environment for Indian users under the age of 18. Gamers under the age of 18 will need their parents' permission to play the game, according to Krafton. In a similar vein, the firm has implemented parental OTP verification. The OTP will be required in order to play the BGMI game. "Before they begin playing for the first time, any player under the age of 18 must register a parent or guardian. "An OTP will be given to the registered person's phone number, and the minor will be permitted to play the game after that," Krafton stated in a statement.
Support for warning messages, break reminders, gaming limitations, and other features have been added by Krafton as part of the 'Game Responsibly' programme.
Furthermore, Krafton has limited the BGMI playing for gamers under the age of 18 to three hours. Another significant modification made by Krafton is the lowering of the daily spending limit to Rs 7000.
There have been several cases in the past where children have squandered their parents' hard-earned money on video games. The spending restriction will prevent lesser gamers from overspending on BGMI.
Furthermore, the firm just released the BGMI 1.7 upgrade, which includes new gaming mechanics and unique features. The update adds a new League of Legends-inspired mode to the Erangel, Livik, and Sanhok maps.
