The void that has been left by PUBG after its ban in India might fill up with the launch of FAU-G, which is now live on the Play Store. nCore Games had earlier announced its association with Bollywood star Akshay Kumar to launch FAU-G. The firm said that the game would honour the Indian Armed Forces.
However, if curiosity has you wondering what the game would entail, then here are some facts about the game that you might find interesting.
1. FAUG is not a Battle Royale Game
Breaks your heart? But that’s true. FAU-G, as per the Indian Express, is simply a game that will have episodes that players can play and get to see how the Indian army functions. However, nCore games, in the later stages, could add the battle royale element to the game.
2. Galwan Valley Clash
The game’s first episode will be based on the Galwan Valley clash. In an interview, nCore Games co-founder, Vishal Gonda, revealing about the same said that other episodes will be based on other crucial incidents that the country has witnessed over the years.
3. Cryptic Marketing
The thing to note is that the game’s description doesn’t mention anything about the episodes. The glimpse of the Galwan Valley clash is, however, visible in the trailer of the game. Its description reads: “High up on the peaks at India’s northern border, an elite fighting group protects the nation’s pride and sovereignty. It’s a daunting task, for the most courageous: The Fearless and United Guards. Join a special unit of FAU-G commandos on patrol in dangerous border territory. Come face-to-face with India’s enemies as you engage with hostile invaders on Indian soil.”
4. Brainstormed by Akshay Kumar
Gondal says that the game’s aim is to not just capture the market left vacant after the PUBG ban but also tout it as a brainchild of Akshay Kumar. The company is developing two more games besides FAUG, among which one is a cricket game and another is a music game.
