Garena Free Fire becomes the first mobile battle royale game to receive 1 billion downloads on the Google Play Store
Free Fire now becomes one of the few games that have achieved this milestone.
Garena Free Fire is the first mobile battle royale game to achieve this milestone, and joins a small group of mobile games who have done so.
Garena Free Fire celebrates achievement with its global community
To celebrate this milestone, Garena will host a special in-game event celebrating with the players.
This event will take place in August, in conjunction with Free Fire’s 4th-anniversary celebrations.
The achievement builds on Garena’s Free Fire efforts to offer great content for players
This latest milestone builds on Garena Free Fire’s efforts to provide an accessible and enjoyable battle royale experience catered specifically to smartphone users. Part of the efforts include continuously delivering engaging content for its global community of users and providing esports platforms for the game’s top players to compete and entertain.
In 2021 alone, Garena Free Fire announced collaborations with brands and personalities that resonate with its players. This includes partnerships (in the game and beyond) with McLaren Racing, Street Fighter V, One-Punch Man, and Attack on Titan.
Garena Free Fire’s esports events continue to provide the game’s top teams and players an opportunity to compete to be the best, which offers a viewing spectacle for fans around the world. The recent Free Fire World Series 2021 Singapore hit a peak of 5.4 million concurrent viewers, excluding Chinese platforms. This set a new global esports record.
