The expected OB20 update of Free Fire will be launched on February 25th. Garena had even confirmed the patch notes recently. The update will introduce notable changes, a lot of new features, different adjustments for the weaponry’s stats, and the brand-new Kalahari map.
Garena Might Remove the Purgatory Map in the Future Free Fire Update
Besides the official patch notes, some leaks indicated that Garena would take down the Purgatory map from the game matchmaking area. YouTube channel “Free Fire Gamer’s Zone” suggested in its latest video that the developers would remove the map on February 28.
The Purgatory map is the second version released in the Garena Free Fire Battlegrounds. It showcases how a large canal separates the island in two, producing a lot of ambush points. It has three hot spots, such as Central, Brasilia, and Marbleworks. The Golf Course is considered the best area to land according to players, while the safest area to land is the Crossroads region.
As for weaponry, you can find in Brasilia lots of SMG and LMGs. The Central district is the second place rich in weapons and armor. Sniper rifles can be found in Ski Lodge, is also the highest region on the Purgatory map.
New Update for Garena Free Fire and Other Changes
As it was previously announced, the upcoming update for Free Fire was introduced on February 5, and the new Kalahari map might arrive on February 28. The Kalahari is rumored to come as the best replacement for the Purgatory map. New features and spots are said to be added to the redesigned variant. The decision to remove the Purgatory map is due to its size.
Garena introduced a training island, three active maps, and other game modes, so we have a total of 2GB. To bring us the perfect balance, developers decided to eliminate Purgatory Map. The news is not officially confirmed, but according to the recent leaks, Purgatory Map will be available only in rush time (6 PM to 10 PM).
