Garena Reveals MS Dhoni’s Character In Free Fire India’s New Teaser
Garena’s collaboration with Dhoni can be the biggest crossover in the Indian gaming market’s history. Although the developers haven’t confirmed much about Dhoni’s arrival in Free Fire’s Indian version, they have dropped major hints about the upcoming character by calling it “New Captain.” Moreover, in a separate Instagram post, Garena wrote revealed:
“A legendary force approaches.”
For the unversed, Dhoni is well-known for his love for mobile gaming and has been spotted playing games on his iPad on multiple occasions. Interestingly, it will not be the first time for Garena Free Fire’s collaboration with a cricketer, as Pakistani stars like Babar Azam, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shadab Khan, and Shoaib Malik have previously made their debuts in the Free Fire Pakistan server in 2022.
However, instead of characters, Garena released the bundles for the said cricketers, which might not be the case with “Thala” Dhoni, who is arriving in-game with a character ability. After the release of his character, Dhoni will join the list of the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Hrithik Roshan, KSHMR, DJ Alok, and more, who have partnered with Garena in the past to bring a character based on them.
Note: Garena has yet to unveil the MS Dhoni character for Free Fire’s Indian. We will update this article with more information once developers have revealed the release date, first look, ability, and more.
