Garena has announced two Free Fire tournaments as 2020 comes to a close. The Free Fire Battle Arena Season 2 and Free Fire Total Gaming tournaments have been announced as the two concluding events for the year. The second season of Battle Arena is already underway while Total Gaming is set to begin from December 12.

With two new tourneys, Free Fire is making a clear headway into the pent-up anticipation over the release of PUBG Mobile in India.
