As part of Garena Free Fire’s celebration for its 4th anniversary, there will be plenty of updates to the game, which is now one of the most downloaded games in the Battle Royale genre.

As happens with every Free Fire update, the game went down for maintenance at 9:30 am IST, and will stay down until 5:45 pm IST, after which users can update the game through the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store and resume playing the game as usual and enjoy the various updates.

Garena Free Fire OB29 Update to Include New Characters, Pets, and Game Mode

The main focus of the update is the Lone Wolf mode, which will bring a 1v1 aspect to the game – something that many Battle Royale games have begun including into their arsenal of game modes. The Lone Wolf mode is a knockout based one versus one mode, in which the player who wins the first five rounds will be crowned as champion. For now, the mode is only available with the Iron Cage map, although a tweet from Free Fire’s official Twitter account suggests that a new map for the mode may also be introduced soon.

Other updates that come with OB29 are new characters, new pets, and new weapons, as well as major improvements to the Clash Squad mode. Players who have a rank of Gold III or above will be eligible to receive the exclusive gift for the improved Clash Squad mode, a golden AN94. The patch will now enable users to request their teams to purchase an item directly to one’s inventory, as well as the ability to display their backpacks from the vault in Clash Squad. “We’re adjusting the points calculation in the Battle Royale to make sure the ranking up experience is easier than before,” the company’s representatives stated.

The game will also include a new redeem code which is available on the game’s official website, and which lets players get exciting in-game rewards without paying for them.
