Community Oct 25, 2022

You can play Garena Free Fire Max on PC and here's how you can do it.

Garena Free Fire Max is here and it is available for Android and iOS mobile devices.  The game retains the same Battle Royale settings while introducing more realistic graphics and gameplay. The game is said to be a massive improvement from its previous iteration and has built upon the items that made its previous iterations a massive success. The game picks up right where it left off but improves in every facet. With Garena Free Fire Max, the developers look to break the hold BGMI has on the Indian esports scene and saturate it with their own Battle Royale Games.

The game has seen several changes across the board but nothing major that a player of the previous version will find unfamiliar. Even though the game was released for iOS and Android, players in an attempt to play it on PCs found a way. BGMI, otherwise known as PUBG was released initially released for PC. Free Fire does not have a PC counterpart so the best way to play the same on PC is to play it via BlueStacks.

It requires an operating system of Windows 7 or above paired with modern Intel or AMD CPU with at least 4GB of Ram and 5GB of storage. A reminder, these are all minimum requirements and may not be enough to run Free Fire Max smoothly with high settings.

What is BlueStacks?

BlueStacks initially started as an App Player that helped bridge the gap between platforms like Windows and Android and lets users run Android applications on a desktop. It is freeware that can be downloaded by anyone on their Windows computers and install Apk files just like they would on their Android devices.

Often it is found that Windows computers are way more powerful than Android devices which lets them play a lot of games more smoothly with better quality. You can utilize most of your computer’s performance and play Android games with would otherwise be far from possible on some low to mid-range Android phones.

Android phones usually have screens that are too small for comfort and touch controls aren’t always the best way to go. Having a keyboard for the same mobile game gives an added advantage. A keyboard and mouse are always more accurate than a touch-sensitive screen, playing the same game on a bigger screen is undoubtedly a better experience.

Blue also has the added advantage of customization. Every other control can be customized to your will, unlike mobiles where you can barely rearrange the controls.
