Moba Legends: 5v5 is the official Indian version of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang

It has been more than three years since Mobile Legends: Bang Bang was banned in India. Popularly known as MLBB, this MOBA title has a huge audience in the Asian region. I’m glad to break the news that the game is making a comeback but with a new name, Moba Legends: 5v5.

Its not new that the banned games generally return with a new name and a localised publisher in India. It has already happened with PUBG Mobile, Free Fire. And now, it’s time for Mobile Legends: Bang Bang to come back to India. Before the ban, the game had a decent-sized audience in India, and it still maintains a very good and engaged crowd in India. As a player of this game myself, I can say the crowd is very dedicated towards this game.

What is new in Moba Legends: 5v5 compared to MLBB

On the surface level, it is exactly the same game with a different name. However, the game is being published under a new name, Moba Legends: 5v5. The publisher’s name is Vizta Games, and this seems be the first game under them.

Inside the game, it is just the same. It has all the ongoing events that is running on the global version. So literally there is no difference between Mobile Legends: Bang Bang and Moba Legends: 5v5. One more thing to mention is that, the game is very much localised, and it includes Hindi as a language.

How to play the Indian version of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang

For the Indians, it is very simple. All you need to do is to head over the app stores. The game is currently available only on Google Play. I reached out to MOONTON Games‘ spokesperson for an official comment but unfortunately, they refused to comment on it. This is understandable considering the previous ban. But I can confirm that for now, there’s no iOS version of Moba Legends: Bang Bang, but we’ll get to see it very soon.
