Free Fire is the antithesis of PUBG Mobile when it comes to battle royale games in the mobile games market. But the two games together dominate the mobile games scene like no other games.

Since their inception, mobile games have been seen as casual ways to spend time. However, technological innovations have led mobile devices to take new strides and with mobiles, the games have also developed. Free Fire is one of the first to bring the battle royale experience to mobile.


Over the years, Free Fire has changed the outlook of the game and the game now has an active esports scene as well. Since then, Free Fire has also launched Free Fire Max, a more modern and up-to-date approach to the original game.
