Pre-registrations for FAU-G are open on Google Play Store

FAU-G mobile game has finally arrived on the Google Play store, it has now been put up on the Google Play store for pre-registration. The developers are restricting themselves to Android, for now, as pre-registrations have not appeared on Apple’s App store yet.

FAU-G, short for Fearless and United Guards, anticipated to take on PUBG Mobile India, was announced just two days after PUBG was banned along with 117 other Chinese apps in September. FAU-G is being heavily promoted as a patriotic game that highlights the contribution of the armed forces.

The users who have pre-registered will receive a push notification letting them know the game is available for download. Eligible devices will have the game automatically downloaded and installed. The size of the download and other details about the version have still not been revealed. But the listing gives a brief about the storyline and the gameplay.

FAU-G is being developed by Bengaluru-based nCore Games in collaboration with Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar. The first teaser went live on October 25. PUB-G is trying to bring down the India-China tensions in order to secure the necessary approvals for a comeback, FAU-G has been building on the anti-China sentiment right from its first teaser. The teaser appears to emulate the Galwan Valley skirmishes between India and China along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) that claimed the lives of 20 Indian soldiers and led to an unknown number of Chinese casualties.

FAU-G also aims to tap into the sentiment of “atma nirbhar Bharat” (self-reliant India), a phrase popularised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “nCore Games” has said that 20 percent of the net revenue generated from the game will be donated to Bharat Ke Veer, a trust set up by the government for the families of soldiers who are killed in the line of duty.
