Games Banned From India
Recently, India’s government has banned several online games, including Tencent-backed Garena Free Fire, NetEase’s Onmyoji Arena and Astracraft. In all, almost 50 applications whose parent companies have links to China have been banned from the country. While similar bans have been imposed in the past, these recent ones have focused on national security issues.

If you’re a fan of online shooters, you’ll want to check out Garena Free Fire. This popular game is available for iOS, Android, and PC. It’s an accessory of Vivendi SA, and was created by Strive Amusement. The gameplay is similar to the popular game, PlayerUnknown’s Landmarks, but features a third-person perspective. The game has over a billion players worldwide, and has entered the esports arena.
Game’s Loot Box System
The game’s popularity in India has fueled a public debate about its safety. Many people have expressed concerns over the game’s loot box system, which they claim is illegal and violates Indian gaming laws. Many players have petitioned the game’s developers to remove the loot box gambling system and address other issues.
It’s also worth noting that Garena Free Fire and Pubg India have been banned by the Indian government. As a result, there have been a number of apps taken off the Google Play Store by the government. Fortunately, the game’s fans can continue to play the popular games even after the ban.
Developed by Tencent-Backed Garena
Recently, the Indian government banned 54 Chinese apps from its mobile app store, including a popular battle royale game. The move comes in the wake of a lawsuit filed by PUBG developer Krafton, alleging that Garena copied its popular battle royale game title. The ban, which also affected 116 other apps, led to a massive surge in popularity for the Indian version of Garena Free Fire. However, the ban did not stop PUBG Mobile from returning to the Indian shores, renamed to Battlegrounds Mobile India.
High Number of Followers
While the game has a high number of followers, it has been losing users and revenue over the past few months. This is despite the fact that the game was at its peak in fall 2017, when it was updated to Free Fire Max. The resulting loss of user base has caused PUBG to suffer a severe setback in terms of revenue.
After the ban, Garena’s team was surprised. The company had been pursuing deals with gaming tournament organizations to attract higher user numbers and attract high-profile gamers. The company said it was aware of the ban, but had no immediate comment. As a result, shares in Singapore-based Tencent-backed Garena have fallen nearly 18 percent since the news hit the market.
NetEase-backed Onmyoj Arena is a fighting game in which players can fight each other. The game has a 3D visual layout and is free to play. It also comes with a wide variety of gameplay modes. There is a Mahjong Chess mode, 3v3v3 Royal Battle, Shikigami Defense mode and more.
Popular Onmyoji Series
The game is based on the popular Onmyoji series. It features unique characters, fast-paced action, and impressive visuals. Developed by NetEase, Onmyoji Arena is an exciting new addition to the Onmyoji franchise. It keeps the atmosphere and characters of the original series while bringing in new features and improvements.
The game is schedule for a December 2020 soft launch in several regions. It will then launch in January 2020 in Europe, North America, South America, and Southeast Asia.
Developed by Astracraft
Astracraft is a brand-new shooter from NetEase Games. Players can build and customize their own spaceships and fight other players in online multiplayer battles. The game offers next-generation graphics and features endless gameplay. Players can challenge other players to high scores, or just have a good time playing alone or with friends.
The game is easy to use and offers many customizable options, including weapons and gear. The controls are intuitive and make creating and designing your own robots easy. You can also build a variety of custom machines, from robots to cartoon characters. The game also allows players to use unlimited tech and combinations.
One disadvantage of Astracraft is its server instability. There are times when players get stuck in sandbox mode and are unsure of whether they will stay connected. For this reason, many regulars recommend playing on the Japan server, which has a much better connection. Even then, players still have to deal with the occasional disconnect.
