Free Fire OB29 update expected release date, time, new characters, and more

After the successful Free Fire OB28 update, the next patch is just around the corner. The release of the Advance Server last week has provided a glimpse to players as to what is in the store for them.

The new update is likely to bring in many features to the game, including a weapon, multiple characters, and more. With the update probably only a few days away, players can expect an announcement about it soon.

Release date and time

The expected release date for the Free Fire OB29 update is August 4th-5th, 2021. This is based on the pattern which was observed in the previous few patches. These were released a day before the end of the current ranked season.

Considering that the season ends on August 5th, it is expected that the update can go live a day prior, i.e., August 4th. In addition to this, in the previous few patches, a new Gold Royale started on the same day as the update. Taking this into consideration, the updates might be released on August 5th.

There is a maintenance break on the day of the update, during which the game is inaccessible. This usually begins around 9:30 PM IST (GMT +5:30) and ends around 5:00 PM IST (GMT +5:30). Usually, the patch is available for download a few hours into the update. It is expected to be released around 11:30 AM IST (GMT +5:30).
