The play-ins will happen on May 14, with the top teams qualifying for the finals on May 21. The FFWS is the most premier competition for the battle royale game and one of the most-watched esports tournaments in the world.

Garena has said that the qualifiers for the FFWS 2022 will be conducted in multiple regions in the coming months. No other details about it have been revealed yet. Just like the past two FFWS, this will likely be an offline event as well.

The last Free Fire World Series was held in Singapore in May 2020 with a prize pool of $2 million. It peaked at 5.4 million viewers, making it the most-watched esports event (excluding China), according to Esports Charts. It had an average viewership of 2,087,460.

An FFWS was also supposed to be held in late 2021. This was canceled, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Right now, the Free Fire EMEA Invitational and Asia Championship (FFAC) are coming up. These online events were announced as replacements for the canceled FFWS. The play-ins for both events will take place on Nov. 20 and 21. The EMEA Invitational finals will happen on Nov. 27, while the Asia Championship finals will be live on Nov. 28.

Thirty-one teams will be competing in the FFAC, while the EMEA Invitational will only feature 12 teams.
