If you're not familiar with the game, Free Fire is Garena's incredibly popular survival shooter that pits players against each other in an epic arena. The battle royale game sets a 10-minute timer as Survivors parachute onto a remote island against 49 other players. You're free to pick a starting point and strategize the best course of action to take in order to survive for as long as you can. You can drive vehicles, ambush enemies, snipe other players, or just find a safe place to hide in the wild.

If you're eager to experience the game for yourself, you can download Free Fire on the iOS App Store or on the Google Play Store for Android devices. It's a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
