- Garena Free Fire has hit 1 billion downloads globally on the Google Play Store.
- To mark the achievement, the battle royale game is gearing up to roll out a new update.
- Garena announced that it would be hosting a special in-game event.
Free Fire has reached a peak of 100 million daily active users in 2021, according to Sea Limited’s first-quarter report, which was released today. The last record for Garena’s battle royale was 80 million daily active users. The makers are planning to celebrate it by launching a special in-game event for the players. They are also going to bring in some more additions to their game for celebrating the Free Fire’s fourth anniversary.
This increase in the daily user number for Free Fire is certainly due to the company’s efforts during the coronavirus pandemic.
Free Fire Developers Through a Tweet Said:
“Free Fire has been downloaded more than 1 billion times on the Google Play Store! It is the first mobile battle royale game to achieve this milestone and joins a small group of mobile games that have done so”.
This would not have been possible without the support of Free Fire’s global community of users. We will host a special in-game event in August – in conjunction with the game’s 4th anniversary – to celebrate this milestone with you. To our Free Fire communities around the world – thank you!
