The made in India action game FAU-G is set to take on the space created by PUBG Mobile in the gaming market and will be launching for Indian users on January 26. The company has already recorded more than four million pre-registrations on Google Play, according to game developer nCore Games (via IGN India).
The pre-registrations for the game opened in late November and after many delays the company will be officially launching the game in the market next week. The support for game FAU-G, also known as Fearless and United Guards, is initially being rolled out for high-end and mid-range Android devices. FAU-G is yet to be made available for pre-registration on iOS devices–it will formally arrive on Play Store on January 26 though alongside the Android version.
More than a million pre-registrations for the gaming app were made in the first 24 hours of its debut on Google Play store and the number crossed four-fold in over a month and a half. The company is said to be expecting registrations to cross the five-million mark.
The indegenous game was announced in September when the widely used PUBG Mobile was banned in India. On January 26, the game will also debut on the App Store.
FAU-G is a made in India shooter game developed by Bengaluru-based nCore Games that “pays tribute to the heroes of our nation’s armed forces.” In FAU-G, players will step into the shoes of “a special unit of FAU-G commandos on patrol in dangerous border territory.” The game is said to be “based on real-world scenarios” with the makers previously confirming at least one of those would be based around the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
Unlike rival PUBG Mobile, FAU-G will not be having a Battle Royale mode but the mode is expected to be introduced in the later versions.
