Free Fire, the world’s most downloaded mobile game in 2020, has announced its latest event to celebrate the vibrant festival of colors, Holi, with Survivors all across India. Garena has lined up a host of exciting activities, rewards, and content for Survivors to enjoy this beautiful occasion. This further builds on Garena’s continuous efforts to entertain and delight the fast-growing Indian gaming community with engaging and localized content.
Celebrate Holi with exciting in-game activities and rewards
With Holi just around the corner, everyone is set to enjoy one of the biggest festivals in India. But these plans go out the window when a Demoness invades Free Fire and steals all of the colors away!
Now, Kelly, Hayato, and Misha are calling all Survivors to join their crew. Together, they will embark on a mission to hunt down the Demoness in the game. They will go on a mission to retrieve the missing colors so that the Holi festivities can go on. To achieve this, Survivors will be tasked to complete two stages.
Stage 1 – Fight for your colours
From March 15th, 2021 to March 19th, 2021, survivors will be invited to join the hunt for the Demoness’ hideout. They will need to pick their exploration track marked in different colors, locate the Demoness, then release the stolen colors. Taking the Demoness down will require the collective efforts of all Survivors across India. But the rewards will be more than worth it. The rewards include the Punkster Runner bundle, a Custom Room Card, a Character Level 8 Card, and an Awakening Shard.
Defeating the Demoness will only be the start. Her defeat will see the colors dispersed to different locations across the map. Players will need to collect and exchange the colors for additional rewards.
Stage 2 – Find your true color and restore the colours to Free Fire
Survivors will begin Stage 2 by first taking a personality test. This comprises a set of simple questions around their playing style, how to make friends, etc. – to reveal their true color. This color will represent you for the final color collection!
Players will then have to collect coloured paints from after-match drops, exchange any duplicated colours with friends, and gather a full set of 10 colours to restore them to Free Fire. In return, they will receive exciting rewards like the One-Finger Push-Up emote and the Cyber Bunnies skyboard. The grand Holi celebration will take place on March 28th, 2021. So look forward to additional rewards as Free Fire celebrates the festival together with its Indian fans!
Localized content, including a web series, brand new song and a music video
To kick things up a few notches, Free Fire has also lined up a series of localized content for players to enjoy. This includes a three-part web series production. This will cover how people can meet by chance through Free Fire, forge friendships in the game, play together in duo modes, and unleash their true colors. The series’ first episode will be published on March 16th, 2021. Survivors can also look forward to a brand new song and music video featuring some very familiar personalities, which will be launched on 28 March.
Garena continues its dedication towards the Indian community
This Holi campaign takes forward Garena’s efforts to entertain and engage the Free Fire Indian community with localized experiences specifically tailored to their preferences. Some of the recent highlights include India’s Republic Day event, the introduction of Hindi into the game, the streaming of esports tournaments in local languages, and the hosting of community engagement activities such as a YouTube influencer engagement party in Goa.
Last year, Free Fire also introduced the Light Up Bermuda campaign to celebrate Diwali with all their fans across India. They also partnered with superstar Hrithik Roshan in the “Be The Hero” campaign to launch the game’s first playable Indian character – Jai and developed the #IndiaKaBattleRoyale digital and outdoor campaign.
