FAU-G, which was supposed to be released at the end of October is finally releasing in November, said the game publisher NCore games. From the moment of its announcement in early September, FAU-G has created a huge hype in the market after the ban of PUB-G and PUB-G Lite. Fearless and United Guards, better known as FAU-G is marketed in a way that creates patriotic sentiment which taps into the anti-China mind set. Even the first level of the game is designed on the Galwan valley conflicts between the soldiers of India and China.
The Bengaluru based NCore Games tweeted that FAU-G will be launched in November without revealing a particular date or any platform-specific details.
The game publisher also included the first teaser of the game along with its tweet which was released by Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar on Sunday. The first level of the one-minute teaser gives a glimpse of the game and shows the brawler mechanics being used by the characters in order to fight the enemies.
Although the game was announced soon after the Indian Government decided to ban few Chinese apps which included PUB-G and PUB-G lite in the country, Vishal Gondal, co-founder of NCore games said that the game plan was on for a few months already and it strives to hit the 20-crore user mark within a year. PUB-G and other Chinese apps were banned keeping in regard to the Indo-China tension after the Galwan valley conflict.
Both Akshay Kumar and Vishal Gondal are promoting FAU-G on their respective social media handles since its announcement in September. Being a replacement of PUB-G, which was at its peak popularity, professionals gamers and enthusiasts had really high expectations with it but only time will tell if FAU-G will be able to garner a mass following or not just like its former counterpart.
According to NCore games, 20% of the net revenues gained from FAU-G will be donated to the Government’s fund-raising initiatives for the martyred soldiers’ family, Bharat Ke Veer.
