With hopes of LAN events being crushed due to lockdowns around the globe and the rising popularity of pro players of Free Fire, Garena has decided to give its playerbase some good news. The leading global online games publisher announced today about a new in-game esports event, The Vengeance, that aims “to entertain and engage the global Free Fire community during these challenging times”. The Vengeance starts today, on 17th July and will last till 26th July. Garena has also announced an upcoming Gigantes tournament for the Latin America and Brazil regions.
Citing the global situation that makes conducting LAN events almost impossible, Garena looks to double down on their commitment of delivering “exciting, engaging, and most importantly, safe content for its community”. With The Vengeance announced, they also declared that the new tournaments will be replacing the Free Fire Champion’s Cup (FFCC) 2020 that was scheduled for April this year. FFCC 2020 now stands cancelled due to the current global lockdown situation.
Starting from 17th July, The Vengeance will allow players to win event-exclusive prizes, including costumes, parachute skins, loot boxes, and more. A new game mode, ‘Grim Reaper’, will also be available on the event’s peak day on 26 July.
