Free Fire’s long-awaited McLaren Top Up Event is finally here. After a long maintenance shutdown yesterday, Garena rolled out the Free Fire OB28 update for all its users. With the update, the game publisher detailed all the changes coming to the game. One of the notable omissions though was the mention of McLaren.
To recall, Free Fire first announced collaboration with British motor racing team McLaren last month. It had announced that Free Fire players and enthusiasts will soon be able to experience “the thrill of the Formula 1 race car in-game soon”. Now, we finally have the first phase of this collaboration in the form of the Free Fire McLaren Top Up Event.
Free Fire McLaren Top Up Event: what is it?
Free Fire McLaren Top Up Event, as the name clearly gives away, is a top up event. With the top up event, Garena Free Fire tries to nudge its players to acquire diamonds. In order to acquire diamonds, the in-game currency, the players need to spend real money. However, with a top up event, Garena rewards all the players who spend real money to purchase diamonds for their account.
The McLaren Top Up Event started at 12.30pm on June 8th and will conclude at 11.59pm on June 15th, 2021. The top up event is now available in the events section of the game and it brings with it two new items:
McLaren P1 Helios Car Skin
The McLaren P1 Helios is available as part of McLaren Top Up Event and it is a skin that will increase the acceleration of any car. This skin will also reduce the damage sustained by your vehicle. In order to get this skin, Free Fire players need to top up with 200 diamonds.
Win and Chill emote
Alongside McLaren P1 Helios car skin, you also get a brand new emote called Win and Chill. This new emote will be available to all those players who will top up with 500 diamonds.
