Free Fire has emerged as the best mobile game in 2020 by becoming the most downloaded game, according to App Annie. This mobile battle-royale has been a hit for a long time and has grabbed this award consecutively for the second year. The report has revealed that Free Fire has managed to surpass Among Us to become the best game last year.
These ranking are based on the total number of downloads across official application stores like Google Play and Apple App store. Free Fire has managed to topple the global phenomenon of 2020, the popular game Among Us despite a striking rise in the latter’s user base.
Free Fire is a very popular mobile battle-royale title with a large player base. Despite lacking the hardcore theme of any battle-royale title, this game has gained traction due to its innovative features like characters, lucrative skins and popular crossover events.
Garena, the developers, have successfully catered the need of the fan base for the last couple of years and as a result, Free Fire has won this title for two years straight.
As Free Fire is most downloaded in 2020, a large amount of this credit goes to its big partnerships and collaborations with several prominent names in different industries.
The game has made collaborations with several actors, DJs and even TV series like Money Heist and One Punch Man. The biggest collaboration in Free Fire history was seen by the end of last year where Garena announced football sensation Cristiano Ronaldo as their global ambassador.
Despite being a fancy battle-royale title, Free Fire has managed to beat its toughest competitor, PUBG Mobile, in the race to become the top game last year. Free Fire is the most downloaded game and hence, this trend could be seen for current year as well.
