Highlights
Free Fire India is a version of Free Fire that has been specifically built for the Indian market.
To appeal to the Indian audience, it offers its own set of features with local content.

Update: Free Fire India has announced that the game's launch (originally scheduled to go live on 5th September) has been postponed "by a few weeks." According to the developers, this is being done to fully complete the localisation of the Free Fire India experience.

Original article is as below.


Garena's popular battle royale title Free Fire was prohibited by the government of India in February 2022, citing privacy concerns. Following this ruling, the Google Play Store and App Store withdrew the game from their platforms in accordance with Indian government requirements. Free Fire Max, an upgraded version of Free Fire, on the other hand, was not restricted and may be played in India.

The Indian version of Free Fire i.e. Free Fire India, will be returning for the Indian audience in 2023. Players are pleased to see the game return after a long absence. However, the question is when will the Free Fire India APK file be accessible for download.

Free Fire APK download details

Last year, Garena's famous Battle Royale title was banned in India, affecting millions of players and esports athletes. With the return of BGMI on 29th May 2023, rumors of a possible reappearance of Free Fire began to circulate. 

On 31st August, Garena held a press conference and announced the big news of its battle royale title returning to the Indian markets as Free Fire India. This will be an India-exclusive application, with the Free Fire India APK file becoming available for download in the digital storefronts starting 5th September 2023.

For now players can follow these steps and pre register themselves for Free Fire India:

Step 1: Go to this URL to pre-register: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.garena.game.ffi

Step 2: Select the pre-registration option. When the game is available for installation, you will be notified.

Step 3: After installing the game, players will gain access to special benefits and rewards that are only available to pre-registered users.

Garena's announcement of the release of Free Fire India has sparked enthusiasm throughout the gaming community. This version of the popular game has been tailored to appeal to the likes and preferences of Indian gamers, with a variety of local content and features.

Notably, Free Fire India will be supported by Yotta's cloud hosting infrastructure in India. Yotta promises to protect Indian user data through Indian servers and network connectivity services. This step demonstrates Garena's commitment to offering the greatest possible user experience while prioritizing data security.
