Within two days of the PUBG Mobile app ban in the country, we have witnessed several Indian game developers introduce India’s alternative to PUBG or new battle royale games similar to the banned game. One of the many developers is nCore Games that on Friday announced a new Indian version of PUBG Mobile called FAU-G or Fearless And United: Guards. The game is said to release soon. nCore Games should reveal the release date and other details about the game in the days to come.

FAU-G was always in the pipeline; PUBG ban was coincidental: nCore Games’ Vishal Gondal

Vishal Gondal, CEO of GOQii said via an official tweet that FAU-G is developed in response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Atmanirbhar App campaigner. The announcement comes just two days after the government of India banned 118 Chinese apps including PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite. Gondal later told indianexpress.com that the team has been actively working on FAU-G since May-June 2020.

Notably, FAU-G game is being developed under the mentorship of Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar.

nCore Games is yet to reveal more details about the action game. Talking about the game, Gondal said that FAU-G, as the name suggests, will lesson players about the sacrifices of Indian soldiers. He also said that 20 per cent of net revenue will be donated to BharatKeVeer trust.
