The BGMI 2.8 update is expected to release in the second week of October on Android, followed by iOS devices.
The update will see the return of Zombie mode, new season C5S13, a collaboration with KFC and a few weapon upgrades.

In the last week of May, popular mobile gaming title Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) made a successful return to the Indian region. Millions of gamers throughout the country play the game on a daily basis to experience the thrill of the battle royale. Krafton India has introduced several updates since the return of BGMI, such as the recent Dragon Ball Z event. These updates provide players with a unique and refreshing gaming experience. Players are eager to dive into the next update. Here is when the next update is expected to arrive.

BGMI Update 2.8 Release Date and time

The next update will be the game's third major update following its successful return to the Indian region. The update is expected to be available to BGMI players across the country between 7th October and 13th October. However, the 2.8 update in the Indian edition is most likely to be released in the second week of October. It will most likely be available on Android first, followed by iOS devices. 

While the current A1 Royale Pass is set to conclude on 2nd October, the current season, Cycle 4 Season 12, is set to end on 23rd October. As all important updates always arrive in the game a few days before the start of the new season, the above mentioned timeline was estimated accordingly. The update period that lasts 2 months has also been taken into account.

It is important to note that the last couple of updates were not released according to said time as Krafton wanted to make some changes. It is recommended that players wait for the official announcement for the update.

Features expected in BGMI Update 2.8  

The 2.8 update has already been released in the title's global counterpart, Players Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) Mobile, as has been the case with previous updates. It included a slew of new features that have quickly become fan favorites.

As the majority of the features from PUBG have been transferred over to BGMI, it can be predicted that the primary features from the PUBG Mobile 2.8 update will most probably be added to the Indian variant as well. 

Here are some of the features from update 2.8:

  • Zombies Edge mode includes Aerolith Lab, Outposts, and several zombies such as Mutants, Berserkers, and Rippers, as well as Mutation Weapons (Gauntlets and Blades).

  • Collaboration with KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) 

  • New WOW mode modifications and additions. 

  • Firearms updates include the Crossbow, ACE32, and Honey Badger.

  • Popularity Battle Competition.

  • New C5S13 Season.

  • Enhancements to the classic mode.

Fans are eager and excited to play the new modes in the 2.8 update and the entire gaming community is hoping that Krafton will release the patch as soon as possible.
