For the past two years, Garena Free Fire has been the most downloaded game. The game also repeated the feat and was the third most downloaded game in August 2021.

They are also coming up with a new version of the game called Free Fire Max , for which pre-registration has already started.
With such a vast community, publishers must provide a fair gaming environment for players. However, some hacks have tried to infest the game with prohibited scripts to gain an advantage over others .
