Free Fire server maintenance period details

Free Fire players are currently unable to access the game because the developers have taken the servers down for maintenance. Once this phase ends, players will be able to play the quick-paced BR title on their devices and try out all the new features that have been added with the OB28 update.

Free Fire informed fans of the maintenance break in a social media post. The post reads:

“Attention survivors! We will be having our game maintenance tomorrow. You know what that means – new features are coming! Please be noted that the game will close from 9:30am-6:00pm (IST) – during this time, you will not be able to enter the game. However, you will be able to play normally once you update after the game opens! Thank you for your patience and understanding.”

According to the post, the servers of the game will be down from 9:30 AM IST to 6:00 PM IST (GMT +5.30).
