Does Garena Free Fire still work in India? Post-ban server status and more details


The unexpected ban of Free Fire in India surprised everyone. Being one of the most revenue-generating mobile game titles, no one expected a ban, especially since the game has no Chinese roots.

However, the Indian government banned the title along with 53 other apps that posed a threat to national security on February 14, 2022. Ironically, some gamers can still enjoy the Battle Royale game despite the ban. This caused a lot of confusion as a few players couldn’t access it. Ultimately, this raised the question of whether the server is still down or not.

Free Fire Servers: Live or Down?

Currently the servers are working well in India. Players can log into the game as they did before and enjoy Battle Royale and Clash Squad matches.

However, some players cannot access the Battle Royale game. This is due to their network connection. Players who used Airtel in India were barred from logging into the game as soon as the app was removed. On the other hand, Jio users had no difficulty enjoying the game until very recently. Currently, players who use Wi-Fi can connect to the Battle Royale title and enjoy it.

This is one of the main reasons why Garena asked players to give the name of their network service provider. Using this data, the developers will be able to get a good idea of ​​the users who were denied entry into the Battle Royale game.

Back when PUBG Mobile was banned, it took a long time to shut down the servers. Therefore, if the Free Fire ban is permanent, it will take a few weeks to bring the game’s servers down.

However, gamers need not worry for now as Free Fire MAX can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. This allows players to enjoy the upgraded version of the Battle Royale game even if the servers are taken down in the future.
