PUBG’s Indian FAU-G clone is set to launch in India in November. The game was announced soon after PUBG was banned in the country by the Indian government. Developed by Indian mobile game publisher nCore Games, FAU-G, will be set against the backdrop of the Galwan Valley. While the chances of PUBG returning to India are slim, Indian fans may have FAUG to fill the void.
NCore games have announced the launch date of FAUG on Twitter and wrote: “Good always triumphs over evil, light will always win darkness. May victory bless Fearless And United Guards, our FAU-G. Launch in November 2020!”. nCore has yet to reveal the exact launch date of the game.
FAUG is promoted by Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, who announced game hours after PUBG was banned in India. He wrote: “By supporting PM @ narendramodi’s AtmaNirbhar movement, proud to present an action game, Fearless And United-Guards FAU-G. In addition to entertainment, players will also learn the sacrifices of our soldiers. 20% of the net revenue generated will be donated to @BharatKeVeer Trust “.
Akshay also shared the game teaser on the occasion of Dussehra and wrote: “Today we celebrate the victory of good over evil, and what better day to celebrate our Fearless and United Guards, our FAU-G! On the auspicious occasion of Dussehra, presenting the #FAUG teaser. “
The teaser is just a minute long, it shows the soldiers dressed in the uniform of the Indian army and the Galwan Valley. Soldiers are seen fighting the enemy without weapons.
In India’s second wave of Chinese app bans, the PUBG Mobile app was banned by the government for allegedly violating security guidelines. However, only the mobile app has been banned, not PUBG which is still available on console and PC. It’s because PUBG Mobile jumped into action when Chinese company Tencent Games bought a 1.5% stake in Bluehole Studio. The game was not banned because it was still owned and controlled by the South Korean company and not the Chinese company.
However, PUBG fans in India could still play on their phones because the game servers are accessible via proxy servers and VPNs. But if all goes as planned, users will be able to download it again from the App Stores and play it legally.
