Free Fire India, an upcoming regional variant for Garena’s eponymous title, is all set to arrive on Google Play Store and Apple App Store. The game was initially scheduled to release on 5 September 2023 but later got postponed by a few weeks in a bid to offer the “best possible experience” to Indian fans. Therefore, Indian users can spend more time playing Free Fire MAX before Free Fire India debuts.
Despite the postponement, readers can still access the Play Store page of Free Fire‘s Indian version. They can pre-register for the game and turn on automatic installation to access it as soon as it is released. The game is supposed to offer a similar gameplay experience as the original title. Still, readers will witness some exclusive changes or additions in the Indian version.
Here’s when Free Fire India will be released on Google Play Store:

For the uninitiated, Garena has published the game under “Garena International III,” while Garena International I offers Free Fire and Free Fire MAX. However, none of the games, including the Indian version, are available on the India-specific Apple App Store, which means iOS/iPadOS players will still have to wait a little longer to experience the Free Fire experience.
Apart from the game’s availability, developers have already promised additions like Playtime Limits, Virtual World Reminders, Spending Limits, Toxicity Reporting Mechanism, and more to Free Fire’s Indian version. At the same time, the upcoming is bringing a brand-new character based on former Indian Cricket Team captain MS Dhoni, popularly known as Thala (translates to Leader in English).
