Battlegrounds Mobile India January update to add Spider-Man content today: Here is the rollout schedule


The Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) January update is rolling out later today, bringing notable changes to the popular battle royale game. One of the biggest additions to the multiplayer title comes from Spider-Man: No Way Home, as part of publisher Krafton’s first partnership with Sony Pictures. According to reports, as part of the BGMI update for iOS and Android smartphones, BGMI will receive updates to the game for optimized gameplay. The game may also include in-game weapon handling improvements based on recent PUBG Mobile updates also released by Krafton.

According to Krafton, Android and iOS users will receive the BGMI January update at different times. Android users will receive the update between 12:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. IST, while players on iOS can download the update at 4:30 p.m. IST. The publisher hasn’t specified the size of the update, but recommends users download the latest version over a strong Wi-Fi connection.

While Krafton is yet to provide an official changelog for the BGMI January update, the list of changes recently released for PUBG Mobile gives players an idea of ​​what to expect from the update. PUBG Mobile recently added a new Classic mode called Aftermath and new Spider-Man: No Way Home themed content. The upcoming update is also expected to include a new supply shop for players to purchase supplies using currency found on the map, and the ability to recall an eliminated teammate in certain maps and game modes.

Krafton previously announced that the January update for BGMI will bring collaboration skins to the game along with other exclusive content. According to Krafton, the special content will be made available to players who complete missions in the game. BGMI follows Epic Games’ battle royale title Fortnite, which added Spider-Man: No Way Home content in December, including skins, harvesting tools, back bling and emotes, along with premium skins for Spider-Man and MJ (Michelle Jones -Watson) in the item store.

The game currently features special content from Riot Games’ Arcane series on Netflix, which was added to the game in November 2021 as part of the Battlegrounds Mobile India 1.7 update. Players could play as part of a Mirror World mode that changed their characters into Arcane’s Vi, Jinx, Jayce, or Caitlyn. The game also added special characters, locations, and items to the game as part of the update, just as the upcoming January update will add special Spider-Man: No Way Home-themed content to the game later today.
