The news has been shared by Garena’s official linked handle.
The post contains “Free Fire has been downloaded more than 1 billion times on the Google Play Store! Free Fire is the first mobile battle royale game to achieve this milestone, and joins a small group of mobile games who have done so.“

We will host a special in-game event in August – in conjunction with the game’s 4th anniversary – to celebrate this milestone with you. To our Free Fire communities around the world – thank you!“
Launched in 2017, the game is already winning multiple esports awards.
