Garena has not added any new map into Free Fire in quite a while. However, last month, a brand new location with a code name "Shangri-La" was revealed by leakers. Similar to all other leaks from Garena, the map's real name turned out to be Alpine. In this article, we are going to showcase everything you need to know about the upcoming new Free Fire Alpine map.

1. Free Fire Alpine map release date

Apparently, the map is going to be part of Free Fire's new year celebration event "New Era", arriving on January 1, 2022. Alpine is the fifth map ever added to the game, alongside Bermuda, Purgatory, Kalahari, and Bermuda Remastered. Additionally, the "Alpine Resurrection" event will start on December 25.

Players will be able to check out the new map on a web page available on its launch date. The web event dubbed New Age, might be available from December 15th onward. According to the leak, Alpine will be a very immersive map.

2. Where is Alpine map based on?

Alpine is Garena's interpretation of a mountainous region with rich biodiversity in the vicinity of both snowy mountains and forests. It is likely based on the Alps, a mountainous region in the middle of Europe. Forests and semi-natural grasslands are found on the lower slopes but, as the altitude increases and the temperature drops, trees become scarcer, replaced by snow.

Overall, this is a pretty unique map based on a region that other battle royales have never really tried before. The closest to Alpine is Vikendi from PUBG, however, the former doesn't have nearly as much snow.

3. Details of Alpine map in Free Fire

While both Alpine and Purgatory are located on high altitudes, the former is more focused on normal residence and facility while the latter is focused on tourism. There is next to no tourism on the island, with Carousel and Snowfall being the only related buildings. Design wise, Alpine is super similar to Bermuda, with the same river dividing the southern part of the map.

The map is going to introduce a lot of new features such as trains, helicopters, wind generators, breakable fences, new decorative vehicles, new constructions, new textures, and exclusive buildings.

There are going to be 6 big population centers or cities on the island:

  • Militia is the usual military complex on all Free Fire islands. Located right in the middle of the Alpine map, it is likely to be the hottest drop zone for players.
  • Snowfall on the northwest is the only area on the map covered with snow. It is full of Japanese themed buildings.
  • Railroad is the next big location on the map. It is going to include trains... however, there are no indications that Free Fire players would be able to use them, so far.
  • Stadium is a sports complex on the south side of the map. It is going to have a basketball court.
  • Forest Red is going to be a residential area with a big red tree.
  • Dock is the last big location, with two gigantic warehouses filled with loot.
