Battlegrounds Mobile India - BGMI 1.6 update release date and time

The BGMI 1.6 update is just around the corner and if you want to know when it will be released, we have Battlegrounds Mobile India 1.6 update release date and time information in this article for you.
Since its release in July,  Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) has quickly become one of the most popular mobile games in India, and that's no surprise as the game is a direct continuation of PUBG Mobile, which has been banned in the country in September 2020.

BGMI's successful launch has been followed by a huge 1.5 update, and now BGMI players in India will soon have a chance to enjoy the next big content drop, the BGMI 1.6 update.

The BGMI 1.6 update will introduce an abundance of new content, including the new Flora Menace mode where you will need to survive the alien invasion,  which will be available on the Erangel, Livik, and Sanhok maps.
