Everything known about the upcoming Free Fire OB27 update
There has been a pattern for the previous few updates in Free Fire, i.e., they were rolled out a day before the Clash Squad ranked season ended. The next update is expected to hit the servers on April 14 as the CS mode’s ranked season ends on April 15.

Beginning with the next patch, we’ll adjust the cost of leveling. The exact details are still in the works, as we try to keep everything balanced.
Henceforth, the cost of leveling will also be receiving several changes. However, the specifics are yet to be revealed.
Merging of awakened and normal abilities and balancing
Merging of awakened and normal abilities is one of the key changes. This means that now the skills of awakened characters will only take one slot.
Apart from these, several characters’ skills will also receive particular buffs and nerfs in the Advance Server. Users spotted two of them - Chrono and Wukong.
