Free Fire: Max, a game that’s likely to help Garena reach new heights. The idea is to offer unprecedented thrill in the Battle Royale genre. Though, Garena released Free Fire back in 2017 it made an immediate impact on players all over the world even while facing stiff competition from PUBG Mobile among others. Free Fire has successfully captured the heart of millions through its unique BR mode that fuses realism with fantasy.
With the recent influx in the rumours regarding Free Fire: Max to roll out soon, it’s natural to feel puzzled as well as excited. Although, there are no official announcements on this, as of now. However, concrete proof is out there with the streamers and the community formally associated with the game. There are plenty of ‘leaks’ lingering all over YouTube which can confirm the rumours, as well. This leads us to our next section in which we’ll look more into what Free Fire: Max will be all about.
1. What is Free Fire: Max?
Free Fire: Max is going to be the improved version of Free Fire with enhanced graphics and sound system. This will cater to the needs of those longing for a more realistic experience playing this game. It will have a variety of maps, new modes, weapons as well as other new features.
- ‘Third Eye’ feature will be available. This feature is not yet present in the current update of Free Fire.
- 3D Moving Menu Lobby. Now, your character will also move along the backdrop of the Kalahari grounds. This makes it more life-like and a bit more appealing to the eyes.
- An increase in the maximum rendering/draw distance that opens up room for more action-packed gameplay. Better grass textures and changes in Alok’s skill display.
- Introduction of new snipers are also a part of it. This way the game looks up at offering more varieties to the players.
2. Will Free Fire Max support low-performance devices?
One really unique and success inducing fact about Free Fire is how it has consistently managed to offer compatibility to low-end devices even now. Although there’s no official validation on this, rumours have it that Free Fire: Max is primarily looking to cater to the needs of high-end/ultra-high-end devices only.
Garena has always maintained a progressive mentality. With its playerbase growing up and exposed to a variety of insanely realistic BR games, lately, it had to take this compromising step to look more into the needs of its transitioning playerbase that’ll prefer more realism in BR games in the near future.
3. What will happen to the current Free Fire?
To put it out bluntly, nothing. Free Fire will remain as is. Garena is, definitely, in an attempt to lure in the high-end devices users with Free Fire: Max. Though, this doesn’t imply that it is ready to do so at the cost of sacrificing its low-end device users. The thing is, according to sources, Garena is more likely to revamp Free Fire as the ‘lite’ version of Free Fire: Max. So, low-end users need not worry about losing out on their favourite game just because of the fear of non compatibility. They can still keep playing, normally, as they are even when the Max version goes LIVE.
4. What will happen to my Free Fire account?
Players ought not to worry about this, either. Their achievements and purchases will not get deleted in any manner, regardless of them switching to Free Fire: Max or not. If they do opt to switch to Free Fire: Max, they’ll just have to login through the account they had previously linked Free Fire with. This implies, Guest Accounts might suffer heavy in-game item losses if they wish to switch to Free Fire: Max prior to having their accounts linked.
5. Should I go for it?
Well, this depends on your device and you, basically. But, if you’ve been playing Free Fire up until now in Ultra Settings without any or little lag, then you might as well try the new version, too. Garena is clearly looking to turn the mobile gaming industry upside down with the revolutionary inception of a rich legacy that Free Fire: Max will offer.
If you own a high-performance device and you’re fine playing with compromised graphics and frame rate, you can still consider giving this upgraded version a try. Though, you’ll be missing the main point behind Garena coming up with this high-end concept. Necessary storage space not just for the installation but also for future updates is also gonna be a crucial factor for players contemplating trying out Max.
The final verdict is to stick to the current Free Fire if you own a low-end device as playing the Max version with it will ruin your fun and also your phone with over-heating issues. Buy a high-end device instead if you’re that eager to play Max version.
