If you are wondering what to look forward to this weekend then it is the Garena Free Fire World Series 2021. The World Series 2021 is being held this weekend but the action starts early with play-ins being held on May 28th, 2021. The finals are being held on May 30th, 2021 but there is a lot happening during these three days. Ahead of the World Series 2021, we saw Garena Free Fire get the updates that matter.
From new characters to pets to costume bundles to weapons, Garena has introduced a ton of updates. These updates were essentially preparation for the big finals. In contrast to current circumstances, the Free Fire World Series 2021 is being held offline at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. From livestream to event details, here is everything you need to know.
What is Free Fire World Series 2021?
The Free Fire World Series 2021 can be dubbed as an esports event that puts the world’s top Free Fire talent on display. The event is being held this weekend and is held offline in Singapore. The esports event will bring 18 teams from 11 regions to Singapore and with a prize pool of two million dollars, this is the largest Free Fire event ever.
Garena, the organiser of the esports event, claims that millions of concurrent online viewers tune in at its peak to watch the tournament. Last year, the Free Fire World Series was held online due to the pandemic and with the event returning offline this year, Free Fire is projecting a state of normalcy in a world that is still being devastated by the pandemic.
“With the health and safety of all involved of utmost importance, Garena is working closely with the local authorities and has employed stringent screening and protection measures,” the company said in a released statement.
