Earlier today, as part of Garena‘s earnings announcement, it was reported that Free Fire has achieved a new record for peak daily active users of over 80 million. This easily surpasses the game’s previous record of 60+ million DAU, which was first reported back in March.
The news arrived just in time for the reveal of the game’s latest playable character, Wolfrahh (thanks, Mobile Mode Gaming). Headshots, however, will do less damage when the ability is active.
The company’s grassroots efforts include working alongside regionally-popular streamers and creating content for specific markets, including Day of the Dead events and even a series of short films starring Indonesian action star Joe Taslim.
Another major draw is the fact that the standard game can run on lower-spec devices. That said, news previously spread of Free Fire Max, a visually enhanced version for higher-spec handsets.
