As soon as PUBG Mobile was banned last year in India, nCore Games, owned by CEO of Goqii, Vishal Gondal, soon came up with FAU-G. When the teaser dropped, it was thought to be a promising game that focused on the Indian Army. However, there were others who said that the game was a rip-off of PUBG Mobile.
After this, the developer started the pre-registration page on November 30. Also, it was announced that within three days, the game crossed 1 million pre-registrations on Google Play Store. However, the developers did not reveal the release date at that time.
Now, there has been a tweet by nCore Games, as per which the release date has finally been mentioned as 26th January. The same tweet also mentions that the video trailer of FAUG, and it has now given us an idea of what to expect from the game. “What will you do when they come? We will hold our ground & fight back, because we are Fearless. United. Unstoppable FAU:G! Witness the anthem FAU:G!” tweeted the developer.
In the 1:30 second video, we are able to see the Indian Armed Forces battling against the insurgents. Now, we are not sure whether this is the actual gameplay or just a trailer.
It should be mentioned here that while PUBG Mobile is a battle royale game, FAUG is not. The latter will feature the recent Galvan Valley clash as one of the scenarios, and this means that the players will be taking on insurgents. Gondal has already mentioned that they might include the battle royale mode in the future.
As per Gondal, FAU-G will be played in the third-person perspective. In case you don’t know, PUBG Mobile also has a third person perspective as one of the modes. Apart from this, FAU-G will also have the first person perspective as a mode.
