Garena Free Fire is an online-only action-adventure battle royale game played in third person perspective.
A battle royale match consists of up to 50 players parachuting onto an island in search of weapons and equipment to kill the other players. Players are free to choose their starting position and take weapons and supplies to extend their battle life.
When players start a game, they are in a plane which flies over an island. While the plane is flying, players can jump wherever they want, thus allowing them to choose a strategic place to land. After landing, the players must then go looking for weapons and utility items. Medical equipment, medium and large weapons, grenades, and other items featured can be found throughout the island. The ultimate goal of the players is to survive on the island with a maximum of 50 players online; this requires eliminating all opponents the players encounter along the way and ensuring that they are the only survivor remaining. The available safe area of the game’s map decreases in size over time, directing the surviving players into tighter areas to force encounters. The last player or team standing wins the round.
