What is Free Fire Max and how is it different from the original game?

While games like PUBG and other battle royale worry about making lighter versions for less powerful smartphones, Garena is going the opposite way and preparing for a turbo-charged start. We are talking about Free Fire Max, an improved version of the classic Free Fire that is being tested in beta tests worldwide.

If you are curious about the details of the new version of the game, we will show you what changes compared to the normal Free Fire and also which iOS and Android phones are compatible with the game.

What is Free Fire Max for Smartphones?

Free Fire Max is a version of the Free Fire game for Android and iOS phones with great graphics. The game brings textures, lighting and other details improved compared to the normal version. The player even has access to settings like graphics quality and dynamic shadows.

The experience has been called Ultra HD by Garena, but the reality is that graphics quality will depend on the processor, GPU, and your smartphone’s screen. Only the strongest models on the market will support the game with its maximum configurations.
