After the reveal of Cristiano Ronaldo's collaboration with Free Fire, fans have been salivating for more details on Operation Chrono. Fortunately, we just got word from Garena on what to expect from the latest sci-fi-infused update.

Venture into the future

Futuristic slum universe spawn island.

If you log into Free Fire right now, you'll notice an Operation Chrono takeover on the interface, with the addition of Chrono Missions to unlock limited-time collectibles. The spawn island has also been given a huge makeover, with the futuristic slums taking its place. But, if you long for the classic Free Fire aesthetic, there'll be portal that allows you to travel back.

Rise of a new hero

Cristiano Ronaldo's Free Fire alter ego, Chrono, is an unlockable character that possess the ability to create force fields, which block enemy damage but not your bullets. Friends inside the force field will also gain a boost in their movement speed.

New world, new modes

Free Fire Operation Chrono introduces two new game modes for players to take a break from Classic: Cosmic Racer & The Chosen One.

Cosmic Racer is a limited-time battle royale mode with racing elements (think Mad Max in a cool polished future). 15 teams of two will compete to be the last racer team remaining. You can play solo or with a friend, where one is the Driver - with the ability to launch missiles - and the other a Gunner, who will use weapons to take down other cars.

The Chosen One is akin to Team Deathmatch, but with a twist. Two teams of four will fight and eliminate each other, with points awarded for every kills - the first team to reach 40 points wins the match. Throughout the game, two opposing players will be randomly picked for one-on-one duels. The winner of the duel will earn Bonus Time (30 seconds) for his team, and every kill point will be doubled.

Cosmic Racer is available now until Christmas (25 December), while The Chosen One will be released this Saturday (19 December).

All new goodies

And finally, what's a new Free Fire update without more cool outfits, guns and the like?

A brand new in-game Vending Machine will also be available, allowing players to obtain items by using 3D tokens, which can be obtained in-game all over the map.
