From the very day, Chinese apps got banned in India, a large mass of teens and adults were disappointed particularly being unable to play PUB-G. PUB-G had become a known name in each household due to its popularity mostly due to its high-end gaming and graphics.
To find a harmless solution the launch of the India-based game FAU-G has been in the talk. The game has been criticized a lot too, even before its launch for suspicions of plagiarised content on the poster.
PUBG Mobile’s comeback in India is still uncertain but the much-awaited FAU-G has announced a launch date. The Fearless and United Guards (FAU-G) is finally coming to your mobile devices later this month. The game’s developer has not only confirmed the FAU-G launch date but has also shared a new cinematic video that gives us a closer look at the gameplay, combat styles, and weapons.
FAU-G Launch Date Announced

The launch date reveal is accompanied by a new cinematic video, which gives us yet another look at the gameplay. The teaser gives a hint that this game is actually a tribute to the martyred soldiers who were wrongly killed in the skirmish between the Indian and Chinese forces in Galwan Valley, which also led to the ban of Chinese apps in India. The teaser shows FAU-G commandos fighting enemies trying to enter the country at LAC (Line of Actual Control) in Ladakh. This is probably the ‘first mission in the game’.
Gameplay and Combat Details
In the teaser video above, we also get a first taste of the combat in FAU-G. You will not only brawl with enemies (we are talking about hand-to-hand combat) but also be able to use clubs (as shown below) and even firearms.
You can see the soldiers using what looks like AK-47s in the video. We have also received a first look at the home screen UI, which showcases your character front and center. There also seems to be two types of in-game currency.
Also, if you didn’t already know, FAU-G is not a battle royale game like PUBG. You won’t be able to fight real-life players in this game. A battle royale mode, however, is said to be in the works and may arrive at a later date.
When we said auspicious days, what we actually meant is that we got our first official look at FAU-G on the occasion of Dusshera, with Android pre-registration opening up on Gurupurab at the end of November last year.
The game has already garnered more than 1 million pre-registrations. As per reports, it will initially be available on Android devices, with an iOS release scheduled for sometime in the future.
If you’re one of those crazy PUB-G lovers waiting to play FAU-G whenever it launches in India, head to this link and register to receive a notification whenever the game goes live. You can also choose to have the game automatically installed on your smartphone.
The launch of FAU-G will definitely a huge moment for Indians, but the real question is if it would be able to sustain the pressure and compete with the popularity and become of the known games played in India or will get lost in the crowd of mid-ranged games.
