Take note, BGMI is not the first game to collaborate with Spider-Man: No Way Home. Epic Games had also collaborated with the movie to bring Spider-Man along with other content from the movie to its battle royale game, Fortnite back in December. All of the content introduced in Fortnite included skins, harvesting tools, gliders, emotes, back bling, two premium skins for Spider-Man and MJ.
To recall, back in November, Krafton partnered with Riot Games to bring content from its popular Netflix Arcane series to BGMI with its version 1.7 update. Under the partnership, the company added characters, locations, items, and a new piggyback mode. Apart from this, the company also added a Mirror World mode, where it allowed gamers to change their characters to Arcane’s Vi, Jinx, Jayce, or Caitlyn. With the Spider-Man: No Way Home collaboration, we expect to see the Mirror World Mode make a comeback.
