Justin Bieber and the Reunite the World event headline Free Fire's 5th anniversary.
Free Fire is coming up for its fifth birthday, and the developers, Garena, are going big with the party.
Maybe it's just to remind everyone that Free Fire remains the biggest shooter on mobile, but Garena has been polishing up its title heading up to this fifth-year anniversary. Last month the game revealed a rebrand.
"New Look, New Chapter" states the promotional image. "Battle in style."
This follows the release of a graphically enhanced version of the game, Free Fire MAX, at the end of last year.
And why this desire to look for Free Fire to look its best? Well, because Justin Bieber is coming to town!
Garena has signed up the Canadian pop star for a virtual concert - the first seen in the game - to headline their fifth birthday celebrations.
Other events and festivities are expected, with a new Reunite the World 5 Chapters event confirmed to be on its way, which will offer up exclusive rewards to players.
There is plenty more promised, including a brand new map and game mode, so if you want the lowdown, check out our primer below.
