Garena is looking to make a foothold into India with their Free Fire India Today

Free Fire is a Battle Royale game just like PUBG and Fortnite where you strive to become the last man standing. Though popular mostly in Asia, the game has yet to develop its competitive scene in India. The game is published by the Singapore-based gaming company Garena. Seems like India will be their next target for the time to come.

Though relatively unknown in the competitive scene in India, Free Fire is actually pretty popular on Youtube. The Free Fire India channel currently has 875K subscribers and 147 videos with 120,661,515 views. That is pretty impressive for a Battle Royale game rivaling PUBG Mobile in India.
