The OB35 update of Free Fire is coming out later today, and excitement is at an all-time high. Based on the reveals in the Advance Server, Garena is going to add three new characters in this patch, alongside a new weapon called Bizon. There would be an upgrade to the replay function - players can now watch highlights of the best actions in each match.

However, Garena is going to take down the servers for maintenance soon. In this article, Gururgamer is going to detail the update's expected file size, server downtime, and more!

OB35 update server downtime

The OB35 update is going to be huge.

It is expected that the server would be shut down today for about 10 hours of maintenance. Players would not be able to access the game while the server is down. Below are the projected timings for the server downtime:

  • Start time: 9:30 am IST (GMT +5.30)
  • End time: 5.30 pm IST (GMT +5.30)

Players should take this with a pinch of salt, as Garena has not officially revealed the maintenance time and the info is based on the past few updates. They are likely going to reveal the exact start and end time soon.

Overall, Garena need a lot of time to ensure that the patch transition is smooth and bug free.

Free Fire OB35 update expected file size

Overall, similar to previous patches, both versions of the game (Free Fire and Free Fire MAX) will feature the same update. Players can expect the update size to be around 400 to 500 MB for Android users and 500 to 600 MB for iOS users.
