Free Fire India returns after a year-long ban with new features and Dhoni as brand ambassador

Free Fire India, a popular battle royale game, has made a comeback to India after a one-year ban imposed by the Indian government due to national security concerns.


For safety of user data, the game developers, Garena, have collaborated with Yotta, a service provider officially approved by the Ministry of Information and Technology.

Yotta will be responsible for safeguarding the personal information of Indian gamers and will also provide local servers and network connectivity.

The game will incorporate features and content specifically designed for Indian players, including maps, outfits, weapons, and vehicles.


Garena has made Mahendra Singh Dhoni as the brand ambassador for Free Fire India. Dhoni will also make an appearance in the game as a playable character named "Thala."

Several other renowned Indian sports personalities, including Sunil Chhetri, Saina Nehwal, Leander Paes, and Rahul Chaudhari, will also join the game as playable characters.

Free Fire India is set to host a flagship tournament later this month, with the winners gets the opportunity to represent India at the Free Fire World Series in Thailand.

Users can download the game starting from September 5, 2023, via the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
