Made-in-India battle royale Indus will have its third playtest in February. Developed by Pune-based SuperGaming, Indus is slated for mobile, PC, and consoles with pre-registrations live on Google Play for Android. Pre-registrations for the game began on January 26, India’s Republic Day and are en route to cross one million shortly.
“To celebrate the community’s love and support for Indus, we felt that it’s time to take it to India’s fastest-growing city, Surat,” says SuperGaming co-founder and CEO Roby John. “Our previous playtests had us get valuable feedback from players in Pune and Bengaluru which helped us make a better game, now it’s time to see what some of the more hardcore battle royale players in the country think.”
Like prior playtests, this is an invite-only event so sign up for access and other crucial details like timing via this form. The community will be able to play the game on February 25 in Surat at White Orange Software.
During this community playtest, players will get access to the latest build of Indus and play a few rounds of the game with the developers and fellow community members. Here are some of the changes and additions compared to the second community playtest held in November in Bengaluru:
- Better graphics and smoother visuals.
- New playable paragons (they’re what we call our playable characters).
- New paragon skins.
- New weapons.
- Map improvements.
- Mini-map upgrades.
- Slide feature.
- Customisable controls.
- Supply drops.
- Weapon testing facility — to try out Indus’ weapons before you land on Virlok.

Players will be able to share their thoughts on various aspects of the game and impact the direction of how SuperGaming crafts its most ambitious title yet. If invited, players get an Indus Battle Kit. It’s a collection of collector-grade memorabilia made to celebrate SuperGaming’s community and how games are built through collaboration.
This is inline with how SuperGaming has crafted its biggest hits — MaskGun and Silly Royale. Popular multiplayer shooter MaskGun has amassed over 65 million players since its launch with a relentless focus on putting its players first leading to some of its biggest community members featuring in-game as well as celebrating India-specific events like Diwali.
Indus fans keen to attend this playtest will need to register on this link. The announcement of the selected attendees of the event would be made available via email or phone notifications.
