“Mobile esports and mobile gaming is set to be big in Africa as it is easily accessible for those gamers who cannot afford to purchase a high-end gaming PC or the latest console.
“After launching the Free Fire SSA Servers, which are accessible to most African countries, Garena has greatly improved the experience in the African Free Fire mobile gaming and competitive esports scene. This has opened a lot of opportunities for African mobile gamers to compete at a world-class level. Ekasi Esports is excited to see what the future holds for the African mobile gaming and competitive esports scene,” says Perfect Zikhali, Creative Director for Ekasi Esports.
Free Fire has more than 100 million daily active users worldwide and is free to download via the Android and Apple Store. Helping to boost the game’s popularity on this continent is the fact that there is now a dedicated Free Fire SSA server for South Africa, West Africa and surrounding regions.
Free Fire became one of many mobile esports to rise in popularity over the last 12 months. Last year, the same year Free Fire was the world’s most downloaded mobile game, the game partnered with Cristiano Ronaldo to become an in-game character called Chronos.
