Although both Free Fire Max and BGMI look similar, there are some major differences between these popular battle royale games.
Free Fire may have been banned in India, but its Max version is still available to play. The game allows users to play with their existing Free Fire IDs and keep all progress and items from the lite version. However, should you download and play the Free Fire Max whose future in India looks bleak? Or should you switch to PUBG Mobile Indian version Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), which has been approved by the government? Here’s a quick BGMI vs Free Fire Max comparison to help you decide:
BGMI vs Free Fire Max graphics
In terms of graphics, both BGMI and Free Fire Max deliver a somewhat similar experience. The graphics are exactly what you would expect from a battle royale mobile game, which is neither mind-blowing nor pixelated.
BGMI as well as Free Fire Max allow you to play at a high frame rate on UHD resolution. Maxing out the resolution and frame rate could be a great idea on high-end smartphones as the games will offer better visuals. However, low-end devices are recommended to use lower resolution and frame rates.
