Through a partnership with Nodwin Gaming, Blizzard Entertainment will make its online services available to gamers in India. The two will work together to bring digital distribution of its online service to Indian customers for the first time.
Gamers will have the option to purchase digital balance cards offered in Indian rupees, compliant with GST guidelines, and available through multiple e-commerce platforms including Digistore, Flipkart, Amazon and Nodwin’s payment gateway, Novaplay.
“Nodwin was founded by two guys and their immense love for StarCraft, the iconic Blizzard game,” says Akshat Rathee, co-founder and managing director, Nodwin Gaming.
“We believe in the phenomenal lore of the Blizzard universe and that gamers should always have easy access to all Blizzard products in India. Nodwin has always stood for making gaming more accessible, and this is hopefully the first of many steps to bring Blizzard closer to the Indian gaming community.”
Games from Blizzard’s list of franchises, including “Overwatch,” “Starcraft” and “World of Warcraft” will be available in the launch along with Activision Blizzard partner series games like “Call of Duty.” Event-based purchases, like virtual BlizzCon tickets, will also be available.
