Free Fire OB30 expected release date

With the OB29 patch released at the beginning of August and all "OB" patches last for 2 months, Free Fire OB30 is likely to come out at a similar time. However, Garena has to take events into consideration as well:

The previous patch was released just one day before a Clash Squad Ranked Season ends, and this same season 8 is going to close down on Sept 29, 2021. Players should complete the grind to unlock their ranked rewards if they haven't already.

Free Fire Advance Server OB29 also went live a day before the Keyboard Warrior Gold Royale ends, and the current Gold Royale is also scheduled to end on Sept 29.

If Garena continues to follow the same pattern this time, players can expect the Free Fire OB30 update to come out on Tuesday, Sept 28, 2021.

The Gold Royale set is also ending on the same day.

When will Free Fire OB30 maintenance be?

As usual, the server will not be accessible during the scheduled maintenance. Players will encounter an error while logging in during this time.

Updates generally begin at 9.30 AM IST (GMT +5.30) and ends around 6.00 PM (GMT +5.30). You can usually download the patch halfway into the maintenance, between 10.30 and 12.00 PM IST (GMT +5.30).

Even after downloading, players will not be able to access the game until the server is open again. It is best that you plan your schedule around this update, as you won't be able to play Free Fire for most of that day.
