Publisher and developer Garena has announced a partial rebrand of its shareware mobile battle royale game Free Fire, revealing the continuation of the massive in-game Cataclysm event.
As revealed, the fourth season of Free Fire’s popular annual event will be subtitled “Unity” and will unite the characters from the previous “Cataclysms” under the direction of Tyson Brontë (aka Director).
The heroes must save the city from the Horizons Corporation, led by villains Breeze, Misty, and Nimbus (each with their own elemental power). To win, the Principal’s team must retrieve the Tome, a container containing an unknown powerful weapon.
Starting June 17, Free Fire users will have access to themed in-game activities, a new UI, new mode, cosmetic items, rewards, and so on. The culmination of the event takes place on June 25th and brings with it additional activities.
As for the rebranding, before the end of the summer Free Fire will receive updated graphics, user interface and fonts that will emphasize the dynamism of the gameplay and the progressive nature of the brand. Meanwhile, Garena unveiled a redesigned logo.
“Our fans around the world have always been the driving force behind all innovations in Free Fire. With the branding update, we hope to create a recognizable art style for the game that reflects the spectacle and variety of gameplay. The new logo will be just one of the elements of Free Fire’s modern look. Our team looks forward to sharing more changes in the coming weeks.”said Free Fire producer Harold Teo.
Free Fire and Free Fire MAX are available for Android and iOS. In April, Garena announced the creation of a single-story universe based around the game: Cataclysm: Unity, based on the short How a Flame is Born, will be part of it.
