Garena has announced new in-game and esports content to entertain and engage the global Free Fire community during these challenging times. This includes the Vengeance Day in-game event, which lands today, and two new international tournaments – the recently concluded Free Fire Asia All-Stars (FFAA) 2020 for Asia and the upcoming Gigantes tournament for the Latin America and Brazil regions.
With the global esports scene largely on pause due to the global situation surrounding the coronavirus, the new content reflects Garena’s commitment to deliver exciting, engaging, and most importantly, safe content for its community. The new content also takes the place of the Free Fire Champion’s Cup (FFCC) 2020, which Garena made the difficult decision to cancel earlier this year.
Originally planned as an in-game event for the FFCC 2020, Vengeance Day has now been released as a standalone event for players to enjoy.
Vengeance Day 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 July 25.
A teaser trailer for the Vengeance Day event is available below. The full version will be released on the official Free Fire YouTube channel on July 18.
Regional Esports Tournaments
Garena launched two new all-virtual international tournaments for players to compete in from the comfort of their own homes – the upcoming Gigantes tournament for the LATAM and BR regions and the recently-concluded FFAA 2020 for Asia.
Gigantes will feature the top 12 teams from the Latin America and Brazil regions as they go head-to-head for the title of the continent’s strongest Free Fire team. Taking place on August 1, the fully-online tournament will bring together the top 6 teams from the Liga Brasileira de Free Fire (LBFF) 2020 and the top 6 teams from Free Fire League (FFL) 2020 Group B Sur. The 12 teams will compete in 6 rounds, across 3 maps: Bermuda, Purgatory, and Kalahari. Expect more news on the tournament to drop in the coming weeks.
Garena also recently concluded the Free Fire Asia All-Stars (FFAA) 2020, Free Fire’s premier online-only esports tournament in Asia, which brought together top influencers and professional players (pros) from India, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam on June 12 and 13.
