Garena has announced a new tournament called Free Fire City Open. The tournament will see Survivors battle it out for a chance to represent their city or state. The company notes that this is a first-of-its-kind national tournament, and will feature the top 12 Free Fire teams from across the nation taking each other on for a prize pool of Rs 60 lakh. These 12 teams will feature the top ten teams from eight states. These eight teams will be named after their respective cities, namely Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Chennai, Lucknow, and Visakhapatnam. These eight teams will be joined by two “wildcard” entries who will hail from outside of those eight regions. ‘Survivors’ can sign up in-game through the Free Fire Cup (FFC) mode until match day on 30 April.
