As it happens, Free Fire is also the game with the highest gross revenue in Latin America and Southeast Asia during the third quarter of 2019. A big contributor to the game’s popularity is the fact that it constantly teams up with prominent figures in the entertainment field to promote its image. For its latest collaboration, it has partnered with the well-known Brazilian DJ Alok to feature him as a playable character in-game.

What makes Free Fire stand apart from other games in the genre is its emphasis on hero-style characters and abilities and the fact that it can be played on lower-spec devices. Each match only includes fifty players and generally lasts about 10 minutes, which is a lot faster than the likes of PUBG Mobile for example. This makes it the perfect mobile battle royale experience.

Ahmad also discussed a little bit about the esports presence of the game. According to the statistics he provided, the Free Fire World Series attracted over 100 million cumulative views. As for the overall numbers, the game has had over 450 million downloads and 50+ million daily active users.

It might become your new favorite mobile battle royale, you never know! And of course, don’t forget to check the in-game shop to find DJ Alok, who brings his own AOE ability that grants nearby allies healing and a speed boost.
