The video shared by BGMI’s social media account goes over some of the new changes in the game that includes a new Grenade Indicator, which is bound to come in handy. Other major gameplay changes include the Piggyback function, which essentially allows teammates to carry downed teammates hopefully to safety and revive them. The Mirror World Themed Mode certainly looks pretty fun and is bound to shake up the gameplay in hopefully a meaningful way.
Piggyback certainly will affect gameplay in a big way as it pretty much provides players with more options to revive their teammates as previously, dropping a smoke bomb was about as much safety as one could call on during revival. The Grenade Indicator has been a staple of shooters for a while now and is a massively helpful tool that will help players avoid easily avoidable deaths. BGMI Update 1.7.0 certainly looks like it will be adding quite a bit to the game, and it is scheduled to drop November 19, as confirmed by Krafton.
