The Platinum tier provides a pay per download basis via a Platinum Pass that is priced at Rs 25 to the postpaid users and Rs 26 to the prepaid users.
Lastly, the Free-to-Play tier includes over 250 free games on the app. Vi Games, according to the company, will offer over 250 free games with no charges or in-game purchases.
In addition, postpaid subscribers who choose a plan worth Rs 499 or above will receive five free gold games every month, according to the company.
