Garena is ready to roll out the much-awaited Free Fire OB35 update today. Users have high hopes for it since the new version will oversee the game’s fifth-anniversary celebrations.

It includes UI enhancements, adjustments to characters and weapons, map balances, and several new gameplay features to enhance the overall experience.

Now that the patch notes are out, gamers will finally have a comprehensive overview of the new content on the other side of the maintenance window.

Note: Free Fire is banned in India, so players in the country should refrain from playing the battle royale title. However, they can play Free Fire MAX, which is not among the banned applications.
