How To Play Free Fire On Windows 10 PC In 2021 | Easy Steps

One of the hottest Battle Royale games today that’s being played by millions everyday is Garena Free Fire. Just like PUBG and Call Of Duty: Mobile, Garena Free Fire can be played on a Windows 10 PC (or older OS) using an emulator. If you prefer to play this game on a bigger screen, this guide will walk you through how to install in on your computer.

What is Garena Free Fire?

Free Fire, also known as Free Fire Battlegrounds, is a battle royale game published by Garena and is considered one of the most popular games in this genre. The game starts with up to 50 players being dropped on an island in order to survive by searching for weapons and equipment  to kill opponents. 

It became the most downloaded game in 2019 and is a huge hit in Asia and Latin America. The game is available for everyone globally but it has not achieved the success of similar games  like Fortnite and Call Of Duty Mobile in the United States. 

Why is Garena Free Fire not available on PC?

Garena Free Fire is only available officially in both Android and iOS devices. If you are wondering if there’s Garena Free Fire for PC, the answer is both yes and no. No because Garena did not develop an official PC version of the game at all. However, it’s also a Yes as Free Fire Battlegrounds can be played on a Windows 10 PC (or older versions of Windows) using a third party software called an emulator. Many people prefer to use BlueStacks when it comes playing popular mobile games on their computers. However, there are also many other third party emulators that you can use. 

In this guide, we’ll suggest that you stick with using the Bluestacks emulator.

What are the system requirements to play Free Fire on a PC?

Garena does not list of minimum and recommended system requirements for PC but players who have tried playing it recommends that you should have at least the following specifications:

  • CPU: Core i3 2.4GHz
  • Memory (RAM): 4GB
  • Graphics card: Intel HD Graphics 4000
  • Storage space: 4GB
  • Operating System: Windows 7, 8, 10 (64-bit)
  • Internet: Fast broadband internet

Personally, i would strongly suggest that you exceed these specifications if you want a smooth experience by getting a faster CPU and Graphics card. Since you’ll be playing online, make sure that your internet connection is at least 15Mbps or up and if possible, try to use a LAN connection instead of wifi. This can give you a strong advantage over traditional mobile players.
