FAU-G game is an Indian alternative to a popular Chinese game, PUBG. PUBG was banned by the Indian government last month, along with other 117 other Chinese-owned applications. This led, Akshay Kumar, a bollywood actor to release a game called ‘FAU-G’, an Indian alternative to the game.
Akshay Kumar released FAU-G’s teaser yesterday on the ocassion of Dusshera to promote, Victory over Evil. The game has been developed by a Bengaluru based nCore Games, in collaboration with Akshay Kumar. FAU-G which basically means Fearless and United Guards is said to be release by the end of this month.
The one-minute teaser video shared by Kumar, gave the audience a glimpse of the first level of FAU-G game that is based on the Galwan Valley between India and China. The characters in the game used different brawler mechanics to fight with their enemies.
The teaser video that was uploaded by Kumar on Sunday, ends with a ‘coming-soon’ outro. No other details were provided by the actor and that has made fans even more excited.
Vishal Gondal, NCore’s co-founder had stated last month that FAU-G will be out by the end of this month i.e.(October). The game is aiming to reach 20 crores users in a year.
Gondal’s NCore has promised to give 20 percent of FAU-G game’s net revenues to the government’s fund-raising programme ‘Bharat Ke Veer’. The game was also aimed to tap into the anti-China sentiment and patriotism in the country.
WILL FAU-G BE ANY DIFFERENT FROM PUBG?
The teaser however, depicts a scene of conflict on hilly terrain, which will presumably present a scene of armed conflict against enemy forces that players will take on in the game’s missions. In earlier reports, Vishal Gondal, the founder and chief of nCore Games, the developer of FAU-G, was quoted as stating that FAU-G’s gameplay will not come with a battle royale mode upon release. Instead, the gameplay will be based on India’s recent armed conflict against China at the Galwan Valley border. The teaser is presumably depicting these scenes.
Given how FAU-G’s teaser looks like, it remains to be seen if this game will bring the same environment as PUBG mobile did or has some more interesting features than PUBG. FAU-G’s makers, on this note, have so far underlined that the game will not aim to replicate what PUBG mobile already offered, but instead come with an original storyline and will be even more interesting.
