Garena Free Fire Max, the upgraded version of Free Fire is now available for download on Android smaretphones. The game will download on Android devices connected to a WiFi network for users who pre-registered for the same. Others can simply head to the Play Store and search for the game. Free Fire MAX has a download size of 0.96GB.

We tested out the game and surprisingly just past the login page is a notice that informs you that the game’s servers are not ready yet. That means all you can do right now is enjoy a short cutscene and nothing more. The game’s servers are expected to go up soon, though.

UPDATE: Trying to play the new game now shows a different message. Starting the game and logging in now shows a “Limited test has ended. See you in the next test.” message. The result is the same though and unless you’re one of the players who managed to get through the limited test run, you still cannot get past this new screen and play a match.
