Weekly Time Waster - ‘Garena Free Fire: Winterlands’

Rate this item

Every month or so, a new battle royale game seems to pop up, and while most of them are cheap rip-offs that barely function, there are also a few diamonds in the rough. “Garena Free Fire” is one such diamond.

Even though “PUBG” and “Fortnite” mostly control the market, they can also get stale after a while; “Garena” has a massive player base due to its recent release and I had no problems and barely any wait time to load into a game.

Just like most battle royale games, the premise is simple. You parachute down onto a map and must scavenge materials to build the best loadout you can with weapons, armor and grenades, all in an effort to be the last man standing. You’re inside a circle that slowly closes, bringing everyone together in a chaotic shootout.

But this game changes up the pace a bit. Instead of the typical 100 players, there are only 50 in each game. The rounds also last 10 minutes on average, compared to the grueling 30-minute matches involved with something like “PUBG.” This keeps each round you play short and sweet and extremely tense. There’s a good selection of vehicles to drive and lots of different ways to play, from stealth to guns blazing. You can play with your friends in a squad of up to four or you can go solo against 49 other people all by yourself. The choice is yours. I’ve had a blast playing it, and I hope you do too!

“Garena Free Fire: Winterlands” is free to download on the Android and IOS stores.
