One of the worst-kept secrets is coming to light: as many of you know, at Garena we’ve been working diligently over this year to completely rework the Garena experience for our gamers. In that time, we have surveyed hundreds of our users, completely written hundreds of thousand lines of code and released over ten updates to out faithfull beta testers who have been testing Messenger for over four months now. Today already over 200,000 people have tried and are using Garena Messenger.
I am happy to announce that starting today, Garena Messenger will be available for all Garena gamers.
With the new messenger you can chat, meet and and play with your friends around the globe. Set up a group chat with your friends and arrange a game together or enter the familiar Garena rooms to find new friends to play with over the net.
You can customize Messenger to your liking – choose from a variety of themes and your favorite game avatars – with loads more to come over time.
You can play a range of newly launched Garena games, from BlackShot and Heroes of Newerth to the new Garena GO Kart and Leagues of Legends (the availability of these games is dependent on region -mostly South East Asia).
