Since the game was first released in early September last year, there has been a lot of buzz even though all the known information about the game comes from several trailers and trailers. FAU-G caused a sensation, and the news was announced immediately after China banned the use of apps in India, which prevented gamers from playing PUBG Mobile, which was one of the most popular mobile games at the time.
This is all you need to know about FAU-G.
What is FAU-G?
FAU-G (also known as Fearless and United Guards) is a mobile game produced in India by nCore Games of Bangalore. After the Indian government banned PUBG mobile in the country, it was announced in September 2020. Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar announced FAU-G on Twitter, saying that it supports the Atmanirbhar movement, “Players will also understand the sacrifices of our soldiers.” He also shared that 20% of the revenue generated by the game will be donated to Bharat Ke Veer Trust.
Vishal Gondal, co-founder of nCore Games, revealed that the first phase of FAU-G was based on the skirmish in the Galvan Valley where the Indian army and the Chinese army were fighting. Then in October, the actor shared a trailer that gave us a glimpse of the bickering mechanism in the game. Although the game is called an Indian alternative to PUBG Mobile, it does not seem to have the same royal battle style game.
However, a report by IGN of India pointed out that FAU-G will adopt a story mode when it is released, and a multiplayer game and a royal battle mode will be adopted later.
When will it launch?
FAU-G is planned to be launched in India on January 26th. Kumar shared the release date via a tweet earlier this month. The game was originally intended to be released in October last year, but that did not happen. Then, nCore Games shared that FAU-G will be launched in November 2020, but this did not happen. Now that it is ready to be released on Republic Day, this will be the ideal time to release a game that sparks patriotism.

The FAU-G application page was broadcast live on Google Play in late November for pre-registration. After pre-registering, you will receive a push notification to let you know that the game is available for download when it starts.
