See what's new on the Launch of Free Fire MAX
Coming soon, the Creation Workshop is a Free Fire MAX exclusive feature that allows players to create their own maps. Fans can get creative and include various objects like buildings, structures and decorations for a different experience with friends. Completed maps can be played in both Free Fire and Free Fire MAX, as players are able to share their custom maps for both versions of Free Fire.
A new map, Bermuda MAX, will also be added to Free Fire MAX, bringing a redesign to the Clock Tower and Factory areas, adding details to the internal and external structures of the environment.
New Free Fire Update
The new update brings a new mode for the Contra Squad, available in the Custom Room, where it is possible to form teams of up to 6 players. In addition, the mode will receive adjustments to the Bermuda map. Changes were made in the Clock Tower, to better balance the map when teams resurface, and in the city of Mars Electric, where a slight adjustment was made so that the shed is in the center of the map.
Players who participate in games in this new mode will win the Craft Workshop Card, and whoever secures 30 kills can win a Free Fire MAX themed ice wall. The Combat Zone on Training Island will have a few less items. The fit is intended to ensure that training is more dynamic for users. Learn more at Garena's Dev Blog.
Optimization at Points of Return
Interface optimization comes in to ensure that users will be able to see Points of Return being captured on the map, ensuring more accurate information. They will no longer disappear while being captured and players will be able to watch who is capturing due to HUD optimization. The update also features a countdown to the end of Return Points and their cooldown.
What's New in Battle Royale Mode
The Vending Machine is now available on Airdrop. The new feature allows players to spend their FF Tokens in different places on the map, and can strengthen themselves and raise their teammates. The update will also bring a change to the gas damage level to ensure that no one can hide in the poison while waiting for other players to be killed. Poison gas damage increases by 10%, and the damage increase for each new area increases by 3%.
The characters Chrono, Wukong, Andrew and Shiro received upgrades and tweaks to their abilities. In addition, the Treatment Rifle, SPAS-12, FF Knife, Grenade, P90, AWM, SKS and Vector weapons have been rebalanced. See all the adjustments on Garena's Dev Blog.
As of the new update, the Firelink technology will also be available, which allows full interoperability between Free Fire MAX and Free Fire. This will allow players to:
- Use the same existing Free Fire account to login to Free Fire MAX;
- Sync all account data – including account progress and game items – across both apps;
- Play all game modes with all Free Fire players, regardless of the app they use.
- You can find the full update notes on the Garena Dev Blog.
