Garena has announced a Free Fire x One-Punch Man crossover event called The Hero Trial. This is the game’s first crossover event for 2021, which hints at more such crossover events over the year. The event will kick off from January 10, and will offer a bunch of One-Punch Man in-game content like new reskins, costumes, and even a special event interface.
According to the press release, “The Hero Trial will immerse players in a Free Fire universe filled with disaster and chaos – one crying out for heroes to come to the fore. Under the leadership of One-Punch Man heroes Saitama and Genos, players will be challenged to unleash their inner power and become heroes in their own rights!”
One-Punch Man themed items
On January 15, the game’s main interface will change to reflect One-Punch Man elements. Players will also see One-Punch Man themed items in the game like Easter eggs on spawn island, as well as reskins of in-game elements like airdrops and the airship. Players will also get access to a bunch of One-Punch Man items like Saitama and Genos character costumes as well as backpacks, Gloo Wall skins and the “I’m Saitama” emote. There will also be two new weapons skins, namely the Megapunch M1887 and the Genos M4A1. As an added bonus, those players who log in on January 23 will get a free Saitama Loot Box skin.
On January 15, there will be a special “training session” that will offer players the chance to win rewards. Each session will task players with defeating monsters. These monsters will drop boxes in three tiers of rarity once they are defeated. As one might expect, a higher rarity tier results in rarer items. However, in order to be a part of the training session, players will have to collect One-Punch Man Tickets in-game post-match drops and by completing daily missions.
Path to Hero web event
There will also be a Path to Hero web event that will be held from January 16 to 26. The event will see players take a hero’s path that is filled with monsters and treasure boxes. Each treasure box will give players tokens that can be exchanged for exciting rewards in the redemption store. Players will need to earn exploration tokens by completing daily missions.
