Step 4: You can then click the Install button to begin downloading the latest version of the game.

Ensure that your PC has sufficient storage space to install the emulator and the game successfully. It is important to note that the performance of the battle royale title will ultimately vary based on the hardware specs of your PC.

Step 5: Once the installation ends, open Free Fire on the relevant emulator, and you can then begin playing the latest version.

You need to be aware that Garena has introduced a separate matchmaking queue for those using emulators. As a result, you will only get paired with others who are playing the game on an emulator. In addition, even if you are in the lobby with someone who is playing on mobile, you will still be put into emulator matchmaking.

Disclaimer: Free Fire is prohibited in India due to government-imposed limitations. Thus, you should not participate in the game for the time being. You can wait for the release of the Indian edition of the game, which Garena announced a few months ago.
