BGMI 1.6 new features are super well designed.

1 - BGMI 1.6 update expected release date and download size

The current Royale Pass season of BGMI will end on Sept 17, at 5.30 AM, with C1S2 begins on Sept 17, 7.30 AM. Usually, the new update of BGMI is supposed to come out before the new season start. Therefore, it is logical to expect the BGMI update 1.6 release date falls between 16 and 17 September, or sometime tomorrow.

Players can expect the 1.6 patch of BGMI to be about the same size as PUBG Mobile's version. Hence, it would be around 690 MB for Android and 1.68 GB for iOS.
