FAU-G is ready to launch on Republic Day (26 January)
FAU-G is an upcoming mobile game that's expected to replace PUBG Mobile’s fever in India.
The much-awaited Indian game ‘Fearless And United Guards, also known as, FAU-G is all set to launch on Republic Day, January 26. Developed by nCORE video games, it is touted to be India’s answer to the popular mobile game ‘PUBG’.
FAU-G was first announced in September 2020 when PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite were banned in the country. This made numerous statements that FAU-G will be nothing but an Indian form of PUBG. However, that's not true. At first, FAU-G will not even feature a Battle Royale mode. For that, the gamers will need to see towards the likes of Fortnite and Call of Duty Mobile.
5 aspects to know before its release
1. Different from PUBG Mobile
FAU-G was reported soon after the ban on PUBG Mobile in India. However, nCore video games founder Vishal Gondal had confirmed that it shouldn’t be in contrast to PUBG Mobile as the game was being worked on for quite a while.
2. Episode 1 Is Set In Ladakh:
A teaser released by nCORE Games recently starts within the snow-shrouded LAC at Ladakh where an officer can be seen combatting another, a solid voiceover in Punjabi translates to “Do not even step on my land”. So as per this promo, the game is likely to be set in LAC, to start with.
Moreover, China’s interruption and uncalled-for activities at LAC in real can be seen as a reference here. It shows Indian army officers in a faceoff with enemy forces along with a rousing song of devotion.
3. A Huge Close Combat, Hand Weapons:
As per early expectations based on the promos, it is being believed that FAUG will see a lot of hand-to-hand combat and hand weapons for the same. Rifles and other such artillery can moreover be seen but maybe with an extraordinary share of near combat.
4. Multiplayer Mode Available Sans Battle Royale:
The popular game style of Battle Royale where many users are put together randomly in the gameplay zone and must battle for their survival has been made popular by games like PUBG Mobile, Fortnite, and Call of Duty Mobile. However, FAU-G will not follow this plan – it'll have linear missions and segments that will unfold through the narrative. The game will have a multiplayer mode.
Interested gamers can pre-register to get early access to the game when it arrives on the Play Store. The link was been shared by developers last year and more than a million players are claimed to have registered in the first 24 hours of the announcement.
