Patch 1.8.20 introduces several significant updates to Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.

Notable changes include reworks for Lolita and Johnson, a revamped home screen interface, and the unveiling of a brand-new assassin hero.

Among these additions is the introduction of a game mode called Domination.

This new mode will join the rotation of existing arcade game modes, such as Mayhem, Mirror Mode, Overdrive, and several others.

In this game mode, two teams of four players engage in intense battles to control three strategic points on the battlefield.

Securing one of these capture points results in point generation for the team. If these capture points aren’t defended, they can be seized by the opposing team. The first squad to reach 100% wins the game.

Adding to the dynamic nature of the mode, players will find portals scattered throughout the map, allowing them to move quicker between locations.

This mode takes place on an entirely futuristic map, evoking the ambiance of Zlatan, a futuristic city where the renowned S.A.B.E.R. squad resides.

The patch, along with the new game mode, will be released on September 19.
