Garena is set to relaunch Free Fire India with servers set in Mumbai

Garena is gearing up for a relaunch of Free Fire India for the Indian audiences. The developers have made significant moves in moving the game servers to Mumbai for proper local regulatory compliance and to meet the unique legal demands of the local Indian Markets. Free Fire has been a popular title in the Indian Markets, and the company now will be focused on claiming the title back with the relocation of servers to Mumbai.

Garena aims to focus more on the localization of the game with proper regulatory compliance

The main motive behind this move will be to not only set up a local server for better operations but also to make sure that the game meets the unique set of regulatory compliance set by the regulatory authorities. The game was immensely popular before its ban, boasting over 40 million monthly active users at its peak, making the ban in 2022 a blow to both Garena and the Indian gaming community. This time around with localized servers, the company aims for better compliance with the local laws.

The new servers will be set in Yotta Data Services Navi Mumbai premises. Initial plans were to establish the servers in the Nodia offices of Yotta Data Services however due to delayed responses arising due to the meticulous preparations and rigorous testing, the company later decided to move the operations down to Mumbai. The testing and operations are still going on to make sure that the servers will be able to streamline data and handle excessive streaming for a seamless gaming experience.

The game’s launch has been delayed in the past because of the localization efforts

The relaunch of the game, Free Fire India has been postponed and delayed a few times because of the localization efforts that the company has been going through in a bid for better compliance and legal operations.

By bringing the servers close to India not only will the legal compliance improve but the gaming experience will also improve with fewer lags and better ping while playing the game. For streamers, it will also be a better experience as they will be able to stream more efficiently due to an increase in connectivity to the servers.
