After an extraordinary year, Free Fire is planning to wrap up 2021 with a grand online party this December 31, 2021! While most details are still kept under wraps, event organizers promise that their fans will be blown away by what’s in store this year-end!
Rise of Free Fire
Free Fire is a mobile battle royale shooting game. Each game places 50 players on a single island, where they can explore the vast map, hide in the wild, or seek to eliminate enemy players in order to be the last person surviving on the island.
Aside from battle royale, other game modes are also available in Free Fire. Clash Squad mode is one such game mode that has risen in popularity. The game mode places 2 teams of 4 players in a small location, where they engage in multiple rounds of combat to determine the more skillful team. Other modes include the more casual Pet Rumble, a social game where players engage in a battle of wits.
In late September this year, Garena launched Free Fire MAX globally to continue to drive high quality engagement and immersive experiences across its large and diverse user base. Free Fire MAX is a new standalone version of Free Fire with enhanced specifications that is completely interoperable with Free Fire, allowing users of both versions to play together.
Battle Royale Domination
Garena, developer and publisher of Free Fire, found global success with the game. Rising among the multitude of free-to-play battle royale games, Free Fire became the most downloaded mobile game in 2020 and 2019, according to App Annie, and even achieved a new record high of over s 150 million peak daily active users. Earlier this year, Free Fire hit over 1 billion downloads on the Google Play Store, joining a small group of mobile players who have done so.
Free Fire continued to be the highest grossing mobile game in Southeast Asia, Latin America and India for the third quarter of 2021, according to App Annie. Free Fire has maintained this leading position for the past nine consecutive quarters in Southeast Asia and in Latin America, and four consecutive quarters in India.
The game was also recently awarded the “Esport Mobile Game of the Year” by the Esports Awards 2021 for the second year running, and named the most downloaded mobile game globally this year by Sensor Tower.
Countdown to 2022
As Garena pushes forward to develop and innovate with Free Fire, they also found new ways to connect and engage with local communities through various localised events and activities. Local fans have been the pillars of the success of Free Fire, especially in the Philippines, and have been actively contributing to the evolution of the game.
To celebrate the end of the year, the company will be hosting a year-end party online with tons of activities and prizes for Free Fire fans in the Philippines. Fans and players can look forward to plenty of exciting activities and special appearances from various singers, artists, influencers, and streamers! Major prizes, including high-value in-game items, will also be given away to a few lucky fans.
This may well be one of Free Fire’s biggest parties of the year, so stay tuned to their facebook page Garena Free Fire on Dec 31, 2021, starting at 10:00pm for this exclusive event by Garena.
