Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) May 2022 Update is now available. The update brings a host of new features, including the official Livik map, Core Circle mode, and Classic mode. BGMI developer Krafton also announced that BGMI is celebrating its one-year anniversary. The update also brings a 1st Anniversary Lobby, some in-game items, and a sale on player skins.

According to the BGMI official website, iOS devices will get the update from 4 pm, and Android phones will get the update on May 13th from 12:30 pm to 9:30 pm.

BGMI May 2022 Update 2.0 Features
The first thing that the Battlefield Mobile India (BGMI) May 2022 Update 2.0 brings is the official Livik map. In the map, players can fight in new themed areas, get an all-terrain UTV (high-speed four-wheel seat), and will allow players to upgrade standard weapons such as AKM, M416, MK12 and M24 to XT weapons.
They need to indulge in better tactics and strategies in the new advanced supply zone. They will be able to load supplies from a large number of crates. In addition, the official BGMI map will feature special supplies, a new fast zipline, and a new soccer field. Players can get more items by scoring goals.
The second big feature in BGMI’s May Update is Core Circle Mode. According to the announcement, the mode is inspired by the popular Japanese animation Evangelion, and it brings new skins, rewards, and progression-oriented rewards. Can be experienced in Erangel and Livik maps. Also, the battle between EVA-01 (Evangelion Unit-01) and Evangelion 6th Angel can be watched at Erangel. BGMI says players can access the theme through an in-game discovery event and “receive additional participation progress rewards after May 14.”
The third major update is Classic Mode. There is an emergency pickup feature that allows Erangel and Miramar players to call emergency pickups. When they find themselves outside the play area, they can be placed back in the middle of the play area later. Probably one of the most interesting features is the revival tower that players can use to bring back fallen teammates.
Other features include various improvements to controls. There’s enhanced haptic feedback, support for sponsor matchmaking, and the addition of a like button in spectator mode.
BGMI has issued an update warning for smartphones running the Android 12 operating system. If players get an “Unknown Error” message when entering the 2.0.0 update for the first time, they will need to reboot their device and try again. If “Error code: 3” appears, click “Retry”, and players must download additional resource files to access the game normally. After entering the lobby, you need to download additional resources such as maps.
