Free Fire’s Street Fighter V crossover event in July welcomes Ryu and Chun-Li into the battle royale

Here comes a new challenger! Garena’s Free Fire is launching a Street Fighter V collaboration this July, with fan-favourite characters Ryu and Chun-Li entering the arena.

Along with these two iconic characters, there will also be lots of exclusive collaboration content, as well as limited event experiences and brand-new activities. Plus, there will be a full interface reskin and tons of themed collectibles players can get their hands on.

“Street Fighter revolutionized fighting video games. It is a franchise many of us grew up with, playing as its iconic characters like Ryu and Chun-Li,” Free Fire Producer Harold Teo says. “Bringing a part of Street Fighter into Free Fire and welcoming Ryu and Chun-Li to Bermuda is something our players will enjoy.”

Right now, Free Fire just released its latest Elite Pass called Evil Enchanted, with fairytale-themed items and new cosmetics reminiscent of the classic Cinderella story. With the EP’s new characters and intriguing story, Survivors will be happily preoccupied until the Street Fighter V collab launches in July.
