With Free Fire approaching its third anniversary, Garena is going all out with new events, skins and other great content. A Free Fire maintenance patch is headed to the servers to prepare the game for the grand anniversary celebrations. Players may not be able to access the game during this maintenance break.

Free Fire Maintenance Timings

Free Fire India’s official Instagram handle put out this post regarding Free Fire Maintenance:

The post reveals the Free Fire maintenance timings. Players will not be able to log on and play from 9:30 am to 5 pm IST (GMT +5:30). During this time players will not be able to log in and Free Fire shows a notification which says, ‘The server will be ready soon’. However, after the Free Fire maintenance update, players can continue enjoying the game as usual. 

Garena Free Fire 3rd Anniversary Celebrations

Garena Free Fire has always celebrated its anniversaries with a bang. Last year, the game featured a series of missions starting from 26th August and a chance for players to earn rewards. The mission started off by claiming Cake headgear from the 2nd Anniversary tab in the game. As part of the Anniversary celebrations, Free Fire also conducted an AMA and players got a chance to win free characters, a new game mode, Big Head mode as well as other match rewards. 

This time around, Free Fire is adding the Hayato “Firebrand” character, which will be available for free in the 3rd Anniversary event. Hayato Firebrand is the elite version of Hayato. He comes with an ‘Art of Blades’ special ability that reduces frontal damage by {20/25/30/35/40}% for 3s, with a cooldown of 50 seconds. The character can be unlocked by completing the 'Awakening' missions

All players can also claim a free joker themed costume for Free Fire's 3rd Anniversary. An exclusive ‘Anniversary Royale’ can be claimed in the Luck Royale Section. The Anniversary Royale voucher can be used to redeem rewards. There are also some changes to the spawn island and in-game lobby. 

Despite the difficulties posed by the global lockdown, Free Fire's event landscape has been quite active recently, with numerous competitions announced in the last few months. With the Free Fire maintenance patch adding more exclusive content to the game, this year’s Anniversary celebrations are bound to be bigger and better.
