About The Game
It is almost the same as many other battle royale mobile games, such as PUBG, Fortnite, COD, etc. A player has to survive till the end in a place with other players. It is basically an online game that a player needs to have an internet connection to play with. There are many different modes available that will give different experiences in the battleground. A player can enjoy the game alone or with friends as teammates. And this game is supported in mid-range smartphones.
The graphics are not that high, like PUBG, or Fortnite, or COD. This game is played with 50 players from different parts of the world, and the one who survives till the end gets Booyah as a winning tag. Now let’s talk about some key ideas that made Free Fire really successful.
