In advance of the Indian festival of Holi, Krafton has released the March update for the well-liked mobile game Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI). It will give the game a variety of Holi-themed components and settings. With the Holi Dhamaka update, BGMI will reach version 1.9.0 and gain new Sky Islands, a Holi Dhamaka theme mode on Erangel, and more. Let’s look at everything that was included to the Holi Dhamaka update for BGMI.
BGMI Holi Dhamaka Update 1.9.0 Announced: What s New?
The patch notes for Krafton’s most recent Holi Dhamaka upgrade for BGMI have been made public. Players can access the brand-new Holi Dhamaka theme mode in Erangel by tapping the new arrow button in the bottom-right corner of the game’s interface, next to the Ranked tab. Additionally, if players update their game to the most recent version, they will receive a Wild Ambition set that they can use for a week.
Before entering the real fight zone, players will be able to explore new surroundings and win exclusive coins on the new Sky Islands that will be added to both Erangel and Livik in the update. There will be a variety of ecosystems and terrains on these islands. There will be a sky island with Egyptian pyramids, for instance, and another with an arctic setting where gamers can explore an ice palace.
Before landing on the battlefield, players can fly to these Sky Islands by drop-plane and parachute. A player’s head will become round and have a particular hue whenever they land on one of these islands. In the most recent BGMI update, they can however alter the colour of their heads by utilising unique platforms on these islands.
After that, players can gather coins from the four various coloured zones in the Sky Islands that match the colour of their heads. Once the player returns to the fight from a Sky Island by either dying or voluntarily leaving the island, they can utilise these coins there.
After the countdown in the top-right corner expires, the Sky Islands will only be there for a little time until they vanish. As an added bonus, if players come across an adversary in the Sky Islands, they can shoot them to enlarge their heads, which will cause them to drift off the island and eventually return to the fight below. A hovering player can be lowered to the Sky Island by being shot by teammates.
The Sky Islands aren’t the only new places Krafton has added; there’s also Camp in Erangel and Rainbow Plaza. In the new places, players will be able to purchase a bicycle, a new type of transportation. Additionally, the most recent BGMI update adds race courses to Erangel so that players can pull off some wild stunts on their own on these unique racing tracks.
In addition to these additions, Krafton has changed a few locations in Erangel, such as the Sosnovka Bridge. Additionally, the company included a new random mode for both ranked and unranked matches, as well as an indoor shooting range.
