Garena Free Fire Banned in India 2022

If you're a fan of battle royale games on smartphones, the good news is PUBG Mobile is back in India in the form of BGMI and PUBG New State.

Garena Free Fire, the popular battle royale game, has been banned in India owing to national security threat

The app, along with 53 Chinese applications, was banned by the Indian government earlier today amid political tensions with China

This is the fifth major crackdown on Chinese apps since November 2020, when the government blocked 43 apps over the same national security risk

But there’s one thing that’s quite interesting, Garena Free Fire is not a typical ‘Chinese app’ as it is developed by Singapore-based SEA Limited

This time, the biggest shocker is Garena Free Fire which gained massive popularity following the ban of original PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite in September 2020

Even though Krafton released Battlegrounds India last year and PUBG New State early this year, Garena Free Fire still remains a loyal fanbase

To put it simply, Garena Free Fire is a battle royale-style mobile game where 50 players compete against each other in a deathmatch. Players are thrown out of a plane without any weapon
