There were recently multiple leaks surrounding a potential collaboration between Free Fire and the Japanese superhero franchise – One Punch Man.
To the delight of fans, all these leaks turned about to be true as the crossover was officially confirmed by Free Fire a few days ago.
In a social media post, Free Fire has now unveiled the release date for the upcoming collaboration.
Free Fire's social media post read:
“Three more days before our One-Punch Man collaboration begins! Let’s sound the trumpet to call for battle with the strongest man in history. And gather your energy for the challenge starting on the 10th January 2021. “
Fans are now immensely excited for the new events and in-game items which will be introduced in the fast-paced battle royale game as a result of this partnership.
The challenges are all set to commence from 10th January 2020. The picture that Free Fire shared also mentions ‘The Hero Trial’ and ‘Jan 23’, prompting many to believe that 23rd January could possibly be the peak day for the events.
Apart from this, no other details were revealed about the crossover. However, with the events just around the corner, new information is likely to emerge very soon.
