The FAU-G trailer was first released in October. Created by nCore Games, based in Bangalore and co-founded by Vishal Gondal, it will be released soon.
FAU-G will be released in India on Republic Day, January 26th. The game, which was announced shortly after the PUBG Mobile ban, has been in the process of pre-registering on Google Play since last month. Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar tweeted the launch date along with a new trailer for the game. FAU-G was marketed as an Indian alternative to PUBG Mobile and was originally supposed to be released in October. Now, finally, there is a release date associated with the game a few months after PUBG Mobile was banned in the country along with many other Chinese apps.
Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar tweeted that FAU-G (Fearless and United Guard) will be released on January 26th. pre-registration will be available in the Apple App Store. The tweet also features a trailer for the game, which doesn’t quite show what the gameplay will look like. It ends with the words: “I proudly support Bharat Ke Vir # Atmanirbhar Bharat.”
nCore Games, a Bangalore-based FAU-G developer, announced on Twitter last week that India’s pre-registrations have surpassed the million mark in less than 24 hours.
According to the description on Google Play, the game is based on real storylines and “brings the thrill and adrenaline of a life spent guarding the borders of India to life.” The first trailer, released in October, also released by Akshay Kumar, showed the theme of the game, and company co-founder Vishal Gondal said the first level was based on the Galvan Valley.
Initially nCore Games planned to release the game in October, but this did not happen. The company then tweeted that FAU-G will be released in November, without specifying an exact date. This was in response to the ban on 118 Chinese apps in India in September, including the hugely popular PUBG Mobile. Gondal said at the time that the game had been in development for several months. It plans to hit the 20 crore user mark within a year.
nCore Games also pledged to donate 20% of the proceeds generated by FAU-G to the government’s Bharat Ke Veer initiative.
