Garena Free Fire's OB26 update will be available from February 4 onwards. The developers confirmed the same via an in-game event that will reward players for updating the game and then logging in. The event started from February 2. This event pretty much confirmed that the update would start rolling out on that day.

Event rewards with the OB26 update

Players can simply log in after installing the O26 update to receive two Diamond Royale Vouchers and two Weapon Royale Vouchers. Do note that in order to get the reward players will have to install and log in before February 9, 4:00 AM. Considering the fact that the new update will be a requirement to play the game, almost all regular players should be able to get this reward.

New character

Garena has also confirmed that they will be adding a new character to the game. The company has collaborated with Son Tung M-TP to create Skyler. Son Tung M-TP is a popular music artist in Vietnam. Skylar’s abilities are not yet known, but reports suggest that he will have a special ability to destroy Gloo Walls. This would make Skylar a good choice for aggressive playstyles.

Skylar will also be one of the few in-game characters that are modelled after real-world celebrities. Other examples include Jai, who is based on Bollywood actor, Hritik Roshan. One of the most recent examples is Chrono, who is based on professional footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo. You can learn more about Chrono here.

Garena has announced that it will be hosting the Free Fire South Asia Showdown: Battle of the Stars event. This will take place on February 6 and will feature notable Free Fire streamers from India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh. The tournament is touted as Free Fire’s first-ever esports tournament for the South Asia region. This event will be live-streamed on Free Fire’s official social media channels as well as Garena’s BOOYAH! Platform. The tournament will feature 12 teams, with three teams from each of the four regions. These teams will compete for a total prize pool of 1 million in-game diamonds.
