Free Fire Lite Download Links on the Internet: Real or Fake?

Free Fire Lite Download Links on the Internet: Real or Fake?

Free Fire was launched in 2017 with the intention of offering an engaging battle royale experience to low-end smartphone users. Despite some exciting in-game prospects, the Garena-backed BR shooter has been guilty of providing an underwhelming visual experience due to its low-end features. Thus, developers launched Free Fire MAX to provide an enhanced FF experience.

Lately, Free Fire Lite has been popular among fans of the game. Several sites have provided APK download links for FF Lite, which is surprising considering that Garena has neither announced nor launched the mobile version of the game. This has left fans confused about the authenticity of the download links on the internet.

As mentioned, the Lite version was never launched or discussed by Garena, which proves that the download links are fake. Sites that provide said links for the game lead to download APK files for Sigma Battle Royale, which has been given the unofficial title of FF Lite due to its insanely similar features.

Apart from Sigma Battle Royale, some sites also hide the so-called “FF Low MB” files as FF Lite. However, FF Low MB files are also fake as they are modified Free Fire APKs without OBB. Thus, the download links for FF Lite are fake and one should steer clear of them.


What is Sigma Battle Royale?

Players who are not well versed in the latest trends surrounding Sigma Battle Royale should note that it gained popularity for being a direct copy of Garena FF. Backed by Studio Arm Private Limited, Sigma was available on the Play Store for almost 48 hours and even registered over 500,000 installs before Google removed it.

The primary reason for its removal was due to Sigma’s failure to comply with Google’s developer program guidelines. The potential policy violation was reportedly related to Sigma being a copycat of Garena FF due to its identical maps, modes, weapons, and other in-game aspects.

Currently, Sigma does not have Google Play authentication. A few days ago, developers also took down Sigma’s servers when players saw the following text when launching the game:

The server is closed. Thank you for being a part of this test and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future.”

Despite the game not being available, many websites are still clicking fans to download APK files for Sigma. Thus, one must avoid visiting any Sigma Battle Royale links from unauthorized and questionable sources.
