Free Fire is published by Garena, one of Asia’s most popular video game developer and publisher companies. Headquartered in Singapore, its games will naturally cater to Asian gamers, and Free Fire is no exception. The game supports many common Asian languages, including Tamil.

Free Fire: How to Play in Tamil?

You have come to the right place if you prefer to play Free Fire in Tamil instead of English. Switching your language in the game is relatively straightforward, and you can always change it again later.

Free Fire in India

Free Fire is prevalent in India, as Garena focused on marketing efforts in the subcontinent. There were TV commercials broadcasted in India in a variety of non-English languages, including:

  • Hindi
  • Tamil
  • Telugu
  • Kannada
  • Bengali

Since then, the game has continued to be played widely. Since Tamil is one of India’s major languages, it is included as one of the language choices. However, the latter three on the list above are not options in the game.

The two Indian languages have not been in the game for long, as Hindi and Tamil only arrived in late 2020. However, these language inclusions give players more options to game in their native tongue.

Changing Your Game to Tamil

While we will use Tamil as the example, these steps work for any other language Free Fire supports.

To change the game’s display language to Tamil, follow these steps:

  1. Launch Free Fire on your chosen device.

  9. Relaunch Free Fire.

The game displays most of its text in Tamil, except for the in-game objects. Artwork originally in English will also mostly stay the same.

  • English

  • Vietnamese
  • Indonesian
  • Portuguese
  • Spanish
  • Russian
  • Korean
  • French
  • German
  • Turkish
