Garena Free Fire Max Announces New Light Fest In-Game Event
Garena Free Fire Max is teasing a brand new event. Called Light Fest, the event is set to begin on October 7. The developer has started teasing the event on social media and in-game. The details of the event have not been released officially, but it can be assumed that it will be related to the Diwali holiday.
Garena Free Fire Max: Festival of Light
In one of the posts on Instagram, Garena teases the Map of the Kalahari to be covered in “dark clouds of smoke”. This seems to suggest that the map will get a new look as part of the event.
In the in-game event announcement, Garena revealed some of the challenges they can complete before the event. Rewards include restock cards. Weapon Loot Crates, and more. It’s worth noting that all of these rewards will only be available until October 7, when the Light Fest main event kicks off.
Here is an overview of the rewards and how you can unlock them.
Supply card: Course 3000 meters
Bounty Token: Play for 20 minutes
100x Universal Shards: Kill 5 enemies
Lightning Strike Weapon Loot Crate: Inflict 2000 damage
Garena usually organizes special events to celebrate Diwali. Last year, the developer offered players a number of Diwali-themed game elements. These items can be purchased from a special Diwali Level Up shop using Diamonds, the game’s premium in-game currency.
In 2020, Garena was even more ambitious. Called “Light Up Bermuda,” the event required players to complete missions to collect “diyas” and light up an in-game event map at 100%. Collected diyas could also be exchanged for weapons, skins, and emotes.
Garena has yet to reveal any details on what we can expect during the Light Fest event. We’ll just have to wait and see what the game has in store for players.
