The popularity of Garena Free Fire has allowed it to cross a new milestone. The game has been downloaded over a billion times on the Google Play Store. This also makes it the first mobile battle royale game to reach this milestone. The popularity of the game might have a lot to do with the fact that the game’s system requirements are quite low. This allows it to reach a wider audience, especially those users with budget smartphones. Not only that, but Garena has also focused on both regional and international tournaments, which also helps its popularity grow,
